If it hadn’t been for a knee injury, Britain would have missed out on one of its new pop stars, or at least this decade’s Robbie Williams.
Rarely would you hear the words fortunate and ligament in the same sentence, but for aspiring football player Olly Murs, it was the difference between training and entering the British television talent show ‘The X Factor’, where he convinced the judges and audience of his talent, but possibly not enough.
Still, Murs’ journey has continued far beyond the second place he achieved in the talent show, leading to unexpected fame outside the borders.
His reggae pop-based music, combined with his qualities as a songwriter, have helped him to land several number one singles such as ‘Heart Skips A Beat’ and ‘Troublemaker’.
For his newly-released album Never been better (2014), which went straight to the top of the UK charts, he collaborated with American artists such as Demi Lovato and Travie McCoy.
Murs has appeared in Copenhagen before as the support act of Robbie Williams at Parken, who himself is a big fan of Murs’ music and entertainment talents (rightly so as Murs saved the day when they dueted on ‘The X Factor’ and Williams fluffed a line).
He is coming back to Copenhagen now to put the crowd under his spell.
Come and see his performance and see whether you share Robbie Williams’s love for Murs’ charisma and talent and will let his sunshine pop put a smile on your face.
