Organisers of the Olly Murs and Tom Jones concerts scheduled to take place in Carlisle, Bitts Park in July 2021 have today confirmed that both concerts will be rescheduled to July 2022.

Olly Murs was scheduled to perform on Saturday, July 24, 2021, with Tom Jones set to perform the day after on Sunday, July 25, 2021, however following the announcement that lockdown easing has been delayed, organisers have announced that both concerts have been rescheduled to 2022.

The Olly Murs concert will now take place on Friday, July 22, 2022 with the Tom Jones concert taking place on Sunday, July 24, 2022.

Liz Doogan-Hobbs MBE, CEO of Grandslam Live and LHG Events, promoter of the two concerts said, “We are desperately sorry to have made the difficult decision to postpone the Olly Murs and Tom Jones concerts in Carlisle to 2022.

"As much as we were looking forward to a fantastic weekend of music in Carlisle, the four-week delay has caused unsurmountable logistical challenges and everyone’s safety is the most important thing.

"We know this will be disappointing to everyone who had plans to attend, but also for all the artists, contractors and staff who count on these events for work.

"We can only say that both Tom and Olly hope you will retain your tickets and support the rescheduled dates and we’ll look forward to seeing you then.”

Those who already have a ticket for this year’s events have been urged to hold on to it, it will be valid for 2022’s concerts.

All ticket queries should be directed to the ticket agent who concert-goers purchased your tickets through.
