Special guests announced for Olly Murs gig

Where: Kingsholm Stadium, Gloucester

When: Friday, June 7, 2019

X Factor winners Rak-Su are set to join Olly Murs as his special guests on his 2019 UK arena tour which takes in Gloucester's Kingsholm Stadium on Friday, June 7.

The news follows the release of Rak-Su's I Want You To Freak, a bassy, bouncing dancehall track full of their signature energy and charm.

Ever since the four-piece from Watford dominated our TV screens last Autumn on X Factor, we knew they were different.

Each week Ashley, Jamaal, Myles and Mustafa sang and danced their way to the winner's crown on the back of their own songs, becoming the only act in the show's history to win performing their own original music.

Headliner Olly Murs celebrates a decade at the top with You Know I Know, his sixth album, two discs that feature a brand new album and a sparkling hits collection of songs everyone knows.

Highlights include the glorious Love Me Again, Feel The Same featuring Nile Rogers on guitar, and the title track featuring Shaggy. Once again Olly has worked closely with Steve Mac, Steve Robson and Wayne Hector.

Rak-Su are currently holed up in the studio working hard on their debut album with a host of A list producing and writing talent including Wayne Hector (Nicki Minaj), Rykeyz (Wiz Khalifa), Jamie Scott (Ed Sheeran), MNEK,Ali Tamposi (Justin Bieber)and Grammy Award Winning Stephen 'Di Genius' McGregor (Drake). Hold onto something tightly, Rak-Su are about to blow your socks off.

Tickets for the Kingsholm gig, starting at £37.50, will be on sale at 9.30am tomorrow (Friday, October 12) from the Gloucester Rugby website, though a ticket presale available to club and 1873 Club members opened yesterday (Wednesday).
