Olly Murs on "insane" US One Direction fans
The Xtra Factor host was picked to warm up for the British boyband across the pond on a number of their tour dates earlier this year.
Murs revealed that One Direction fans are a little more frenzied than his own, with the 'Oh My Goodness' star admitting he was taken aback by how much their fans fancied the band. He said:
"They were a little bit younger than I'm used to. My fans aren't as obsessed as theirs, mine are quite chilled. The infatuation and just how much they fancy One Direction was crazy. I caught fans going through bins trying to find stuff the boys had chucked out. It was insane but the fans were brilliant to me. They knew my songs and sang along. It was good to go over there and showcase my music. It was really positive."
Murs meanwhile also told the Metro about a famous face that unexpectedly turned up to one of his shows in the UK. He said:
"I did a gig in Glasgow and my tour manager said: 'Susan Boyle's at the box office'. We didn't have any free tickets left for the show and apologised. She said: 'That's fine, I've come to buy tickets'. She bought four and sat in the audience with her friends and watched the show. She came backstage afterwards. Subo's a fan. We got a picture together and she was very complimentary."
