Olly Murs to play Dubai on Valentines 2014
British pop star Olly Murs will perform a Valentine’s Day gig in Dubai next year. The former UK X-Factor finalist is the first headliner to be named for the Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival 2014.
Get ready for your heart to skip a beat: British X Factor singer Olly Murs is the first name to be announced for next year’s Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival. The singer — who like One Direction, placed runner up on the TV talent show — will perform on on February 14, and the Valentine’s Day show is no coincidence, says the festival founder Anthony Younes, CEO of Chillout Productions.
“Olly is one of the most successful pop stars nowadays, he has lots of love hits and we are preparing something really special for that night,” said Younes. “We believe that Olly’s show is going to be as big as this year’s The Script show. We will also have a mind-blowing supporting act to be announced.”
Murs was a runner-up on the sixth season of X Factor UK in 2009, and since has had four UK number ones, including the recent Troublemaker and Heart Skips A Beat with Rizzle Kicks. Next up, he’ll be dueting with Robbie Williams on the ex-Take That singer’s upcoming album, Swings Both Ways.
