WSAVA / FECAVA / BSAVA World Congress 2012 - Olly Olly Olly - Party Night pop has the X factor


Olly Olly Olly - Party Night pop has the X factor


He’s a platinum selling artist and a primetime television presenter. He packs out arena tours and tops the charts - Olly Murs is coming to party with you at the WSAVA/FECAVA/BSAVA World Congress in April.


After coming runner-up on 2009's X Factor and signing a joint record deal with mentor Simon Cowell and Epic Records, Olly Murs has become a household name, with his star rising even higher when he joined Caroline Flack to present the 2011 series of Xtra Factor.


An impressive musical debut

Olly's debut self-titled album has reached double platinum status (600,000 copies) since its release, making it the biggest selling record of 2010 by a debut artist. It includes his No.1 single "Please Don't Let Me Go" and subsequent singles "Thinking of Me," "Heart On My Sleeve" and "Busy."


Whilst a huge hit on Xtra Factor, music is still his priority and Olly's last single "Heart Skips A Beat" featuring Rizzle Kicks, shot straight to the Number One spot, selling an impressive 110,000 copies in its first week.


A great showman

Olly completed his first 34-date-tour of the UK and Ireland in 2011, selling in excess of 72,500 tickets. He has announced a headline arena tour for February 2012 – and you can see him live at Party Night on the Saturday of the WSAVA/FECAVA/BSAVA World Congress.


Anybody who saw Olly at any of his many festival appearances over the summer will have seen that he really has what it takes to entertain a crowd and keep the audience on its feet, with his flawless vocals and vibrant showmanship. To see Olly work his magic and enjoy the comedy club and disco on Saturday 14 April make sure you add a Party Night ticket to your Congress registration. Remember - we sold out last year.
