By golly it’s Olly - back in Sheffield in 2013

X FACTOR star Olly Murs is making a swift return visit to Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena next year as part of another major UK tour.

Olly sold out the venue in February as part of a series of shows which were seen by over 150,000 fans.

The new Sheffield date will be Saturday March 2, 2013, and tickets priced £32.50 go on sale at 9am this Friday.

Olly, whose current album In Case You Didn’t Know has been certified platinum, is about to embark on a series of American dates with One Direction, who have already achieved major Stateside success.

His music will get its first release in the US later this year.

Olly is currently working on his third album, which is due for release later this year. He will also star in the ITV2 documentary series Life On Murs beginning this Thursday, which follows him on his sold-out 2012 tour.

In October fans will be able to see Olly return to Channel 4’s daily quiz show Deal or No Deal on which he won £10 before his rise to fame.

He will be invited to present its 2,000th special anniversary show - because the usual host Noel Edmonds will be playing the game.
