With sunsets and showtunes, Alfie Boe’s return to the Open Air Theatre in Scarborough should be a recipe for romance, according to the much-loved singer.
With three previous visits to Scarborough Open Air Theatre, Alfie knows the venue well and is looking forward to coming back once more – joined again by fellow stage sensation Michael Ball as they bring their Together This Summer tour to the Yorkshire coast.
The show on Thursday, June 30 will be Alfie’s fourth at the venue, following headline performances at the town’s Armed Forces Day concert in 2015 and 2018, as well as a memorable night with Michael Ball in 2017.
Speaking ahead of his much-anticipated return to Scarborough OAT, Alfie said: “I have had a wonderful time there over the years – it’s a great venue and a wonderful place to perform.”
“Scarborough OAT is one of my favourite venues. Any venue in the open air, in nature, where you’re around trees and the sunset, it’s delightful.”
“When the music is playing and the sun starts to set, it becomes a very romantic setting I think.”
Alfie and Michael joined forces back in 2016, releasing their duets debut Together to huge acclaim as it became the UK’s best-selling album that year, beating the likes of Little Mix and The Rolling Stones to the Christmas Number 1 spot.
Together Again followed suit reaching Number 1 in 2017, and Back Together peaked at Number 2 in the official albums chart. In 2020, they released Together At Christmas, and followed that up with a smash-hit UK arena tour in 2021.
As a duo, they have now sold more than 1.3 million albums in the UK, received two Classic Brit Awards, sold out several headline arena tours and presented three ITV Specials.
And Alfie and Michael are sure to be get a right royal welcome to Scarborough OAT on Thursday, June 30 – like the ‘old friends’ they are of the venue.
