OLLY MURS - SHEFFIELD ARENA The night he gave me his microphone !
Tuesday 31st March Sheffield arena was witness to the opening night of Olly Murs latest tour
The cheeky Essex born singer emerged onto the stage through a trap door to rapturous applause from the mixed audience. His opening song DID YOU MISS ME was quite apt to the reception he recieved.
Ive been an admirer of OM for quite a while now just enjoying the way he has fun and portrays himself in the media , he never seems to become too big for his own boots , the guy is just always smiling and laughing and seems to be enjoying life. RIGHT PLACE RIGHT TIME song 2 on the night and i guess the highlight for me. This is the 3rd time ive been lucky enough to shoot OM and on the 2 previous occasions hes always come down the front for the cameras and had a bit of banter . like i said before he doesnt shy away and seems to lap up the fact weve made an effort to come and cover his gig and give him some exposure .
During this song and about halfway through Olly stopped the show ? , He walked towards me bent down and said to me here Fella hold this for me for a minute ?? puzzled i looked at him still snapping away and then realised the music had stopped and the crowd were cheering , Olly said again cmon fella hold this ! he was holding out infront of him his Microphone , I reached out and grabbed hold of his mic to which Olly proceeded to undo his trousers onstage and tuck his shirt in !!!! . Realising at this point i was now on the large video screens behind him i did the professional thing ...... No i didnt start to sing whilst i had an audience ;) i carried on snapping away 1 handed whilst holding his mic in the other , once Olly had tucked himself in he lent back down and took the mic back off me and said Cheers Fella we dont want any mis-haps onstage do we , he gave me a wink and just went straight back into the show , i guess you can say i really was in the RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME .
On with the show and Olly ran through a great setlist and didnt stop for a breather once the energy the guy gives off comes out in all his weird little dance routines that set him aside from other performers , I really do have to reccomend anybody to go and see Olly Murs live if you havent already , Great voice and great entertainer
