Olly Murs will return to the Castle Esplanade six years on from his sell-out appearance in 2011.
Following on from his spring arena tour, Murs – now one of British music’s biggest stars – will play 20 outdoor dates across the UK, including Edinburgh Castle.
The pop crooner, who finished runner-up in the sixth series of The X Factor in 2009, recently celebrated his fourth successive No1 album, 24 HRS. The milestone makes him the most successful solo artists ever to come out of the smash-hit talent show, which also propelled One Direction and Little Mix to fame.
In 2010, Murs’s debut single Please Don’t Let Me Go entered at number one on the UK Singles Charts and received a Gold certification by the BPI.
