Olly Alexander has hit again at criticism of his concert events.
The Years and Years star admitted he has had walkouts on his ‘Night Call’ tour and mentioned he has obtained backlash for not being “family friendly”.
Olly, 31, informed Metro’s Guilty Pleasures column: “I’m an ‘in your face’ form of homosexual as a result of I need to be. That’s all the time met with somewhat little bit of pearl-clutching, which I really like.
“I just did a show in Nottingham and it was amazing — the audience was out of this world. But it was the only show so far where we had people complain. I know a few of them said it wasn’t ‘family-friendly enough’. There’s never been anything explicit or gratuitous about a Years and Years show, so yeah, I find the reaction to be quite interesting.”
Olly was beforehand pressured to defend his BBC New Year’s Eve live performance after it was slammed for being too attractive.
He mentioned: “It’s because I’m gay, but it’s a bit obtuse to put it all down to that, because it’s about more than sexuality, it’s about how we relate to each other.”
Olly’s present tour is his first as a solo artist.
Years and Years was initially fashioned as a five-piece in 2010 earlier than turning into a three-piece.
However, final 12 months Olly went solo after Mikey Goldsworthy and Emre Turkmen stop Years and Years.
