Known for songs including ‘Grow Up’, ‘Heart Skips a Beat’ and ‘Troublemaker’, the Essex-born singer will take to the stage in Vivary Park, on Friday, August 26 and kick-start three consecutive evenings of live music.
Les Kidger of LCC Live, the concert promoter for Live in Somerset, which has brought big names like Status Quo, Will Young, Jools Holland, Kaiser Chiefs, Paloma Faith, Sir Tom Jones and Billy Ocean to Taunton over the years, is really looking forward to staging events again.
He said: “After a long absence, we can’t wait to get back to Vivary Park in Taunton to stage Live in Somerset. It’s a highlight in our calendar and next year it’s going to be extra-special. We’ve a couple of years to catch up on.
“We’re delighted to announce Olly Murs as the first headliner of the three evenings of live music. Olly is a born entertainer, and we love working with him.
“His enthusiasm knows no bounds, and we love the rapport he has with his fans. It’s going to be a great first night of Live in Somerset – come and join us!”
Les added: “We hope to announce the headline artists for the Saturday and Sunday in the coming weeks.”
