Bouncy British pop prince Olly Murs is to play a summer headline concert in the grounds of Exeter's Powderham Castle. Tickets for the show, on Sunday, July 7, go on sale at 8am tomorrow.

Olly's career has gone from strength to strength since he charmed the judges and the public into the business as runner-up in the 2009's series of The X Factor.

Olly is nominated for the title of best British Male Solo Artist at this year's Brit awards. He released his third LP, Right Place Right Time, in November last year and it became the fastest selling male solo album of 2012 in the UK, going straight to number one in the album chart.

The album's lead single Troublemaker – featuring Flo Rida – reached number one in the UK Singles Chart, meaning Olly held the top spot in both charts simultaneously.

Army of Two, his eagerly awaited second single will be released on March 10.

"Olly has a big fanbase in the area so we just hope there will be enough tickets to meet demand," says concert spokesperson Dion Clements.

Support acts will be announced shortly. For more information, or to book tickets for the event, visit www.gigantic.com or call 0844 888 9991. Powderham Castle can also be reached on 01626 890243.
