The 'Heart Skips A Beat' singer says you get a buzz like no other when you perform live in concert.

Olly Murs has revealed he opted not to return for The Xtra Factor this year because he couldn't turn down the opportunity to tour around the globe.

The 'Army Of Two' singer has bowed out of the ITV2 show after two years co-hosting with Caroline Flack, and explains that touring gives him the best feeling in the world.

"Presenting was always a part-time thing for me," Olly admitted to the Daily Star this week. "When I've got the chance to promote my music around the world, you can't turn that down.

"It's like a drug being on tour," Olly explained. "It's a buzz you can't recreate anywhere else."

Olly has already had a busy year as he continues to promote his 2012 album 'Right Place Right Time', which continues with his brand new single 'Dear Darlin'.

The 'Heart Skips A Beat' singer is also set to join Robbie Williams out on the road in June on the 'Candy' singer's UK stadium tour.

Olly Murs will perform live at the Capital FM Summertime Ball 2013 next weekend on 9th June at Wembley Stadium.
