Olly Murs – Middlesbrough’s Central Square

POP star Olly Murs wooed a 5,000 strong crowd at this summer outdoor show with great support from local lass Amelia Lily and Diane Vickers.

X Factor star Olly thrilled the Teesside audience with an upbeat set featuring his hits Dance With Me Tonight and Hearts Skips a Beat to name but two.

He even threw in a great cover version of The Jam’s A Town Called Malice.

Boro pop princess and special guest Amelia Lily was given a huge welcome back to her home town by the audience.

The concert was Amelia’s first major gig on home soil and she fought back a tear as she told the crowd that she was “so happy” to perform at home.

After the show, she wrote on her Twitter page: “Can’t describe how I feel right now! Middlesbrough I love you.”

Olly also wrote a tweet after the show. He said: “Haha Middlesbrough was delightful tonight so good to be back!! Hope you all loved my Will Smith dance routine specially for you xx”

Also supporting Olly was fellow X Factor star Diana Vickers and two Teesside groups, Sus2 and Bre.

Diana Vickers performed a number of songs from her new album and her number one single Once.

Full marks to local promoters Loose Cannon for bringing this show to the region at such a great venue.

Hopefully it won’t be the last of shows at this fantastic setting.
