Olly Murs has recently returned to the UK after being in America supporting One Direction on tour. Now that he is back he has been describing what 1D mania is like to watch.
Speaking to The Metro about One Direction’s fans, the singer 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. It was intriguing to be in the mayhem of what was going on and to see the impact they've had. It was an easy six weeks' work - the guys were great and so were the fans."
Olly also told the paper of a surprise celebrity fan of his. 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.
“She’s such a nice person. There are all these perceptions of what she’s like but she’s lovely.”
