Olly Murs has revealed he wants to follow in Robbie Williams’ footsteps and play Glastonbury.
The Brit ICON honouree played on the Pyramid Stage at the festival in 1998 with hundred of people singing his songs to him.
“This was a brilliant performance. He sang Angels, look,” he said as he showed a performance of Robbie pulling away from his microphone to have the audience sing back his hit song.

Olly revealed that the major UK festival is the one gig he would love to perform at out of all the festivals around the country.
“Glastonbury is the one gig I would love to do. I have done most of the festivals in this country but Glastonbury is The One,” he told The Sun.
However, the gig of his dreams may be closer than he thinks as he explained that he’s already been spoken to about taking the infamous stage.
“It is definitely something that has already been spoken about a couple of years ago. You wait to be asked, don’t you?”

Olly gushed about Robbie and how he has mentored and supported him.
“I always really looked up to Robbie before I met him. Now we are really good mates and he has become part of my life.
“We are very similar entertainers but different performers.
“He has been a great mentor to me and has always been very supportive.
“He has been like an older brother to me but I don’t really want to say that because he is such an icon,” he added.
