Peterborough Embankment Takes Shape

Final preparations are being made ahead of Olly Murs performing in front of up to 15,000 fans in Peterborough.

The stage [pictured - above] is being bolted together at Peterborough Embankment ahead of the show on Sunday.

Olly will be supported by special guests Stooshe, Diana Vickers and Tich.

He'll be performing his greatest hits, and be joined by his band.

Commenting on Heart bringing Olly to Peterborough, our presenters said: "We love Olly's music - he's such a fantastic performer and the gig is guaranteed to be a fantastic summer's night out.

The Embankment is a great venue for live music and we can't wait!" .

Since becoming runner-up in 2009’s series of The X-Factor, Olly Murs’ double-platinum-selling debut album, reached number two in the UK Album Chart upon release in 2010, and secured two Top Five places in the singles charts. 

Subsequent hits have come one after another, including the number one single Heart Skips a Beat and Dance with me Tonight from Olly’s second album, In Case You Didn’t Know , which hit the number one spot in the UK Album Chart.

The album was certified platinum the following month.


All Queensgate Centre car parks will be open until 11pm on the evening of the concert. 

Parking at Queensgate on a Sunday costs £2.

The Embankment is also a short walk from Peterborough Railway Station.
