One of the world’s greatest classical singers Alfie Boe brings it back to the UK, announcing a 2019 tour in what is becoming another landmark year for the much loved tenor. Last month, Alfie revealed his return to the solo spotlight with the release of his vibrant and instantly classic album As Time Goes By.
The record will be released on 23rd November, and celebrates the golden era of music from the 30s and 40s, a time that is often overlooked – sandwiched as it is between the roaring twenties and rock ‘n’ roll.
Alfie is one of the best-loved vocalists of his generation and a hugely successful, multi-platinum selling artist. He has triumphed on theatre stages and in concert halls around the world and has two recent UK #1 albums under his belt for albums Together and Together Again, made with his great friend Michael Ball. The duo also won two Classic BRIT Awards earlier this year for Best Album and Group of the Year.
“I’m excited to get back on the road, especially with a new record that I’m so proud of. These songs are at their best when performed live!” says Alfie.
He adds, “We’ll be enjoying some of great songs from my previous records, but I more than anything want to bring back to life an era when British audiences discovered a brand new kind of American music, full of energy, optimism and romance. I’d like to transport people to a time in their lives, a moment or even a style. I hope you all enjoy being transported there as much as I do!”
The tour will take place March and April next year, kicking off in Cardiff on 18th March, followed by a series of shows in some of the UK’s most stunning venues including the Liverpool Philharmonic, Brighton Dome and before coming to a close at London’s Royal Albert Hall on 17th April.
Tickets go on general sale today. Alfie will perform at Sheffield City Hall on March 30th, and Harrogate IC on April 6th.
