Following his triumphant performances at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert earlier this year and an extensive US tour; Alfie Boe has added four extra dates to his biggest UK tour for 2013 including a show at the Motorpoint Arena, Sheffield on Friday April 5, 2013.
‘The Nation’s Tenor’ Alfie Boe is one of UK’s huge success stories; not only did he sell out a 23 date UK tour of Britain’s finest concert halls, he sold approaching 750,000 copies of his albums ‘Bring Him Home’ and ‘Alfie’, whilst also fitting in a critically acclaimed West End run as Jean Valjean in Les Misérables.
Alfie recently signed a book deal with Simon & Schuster, with the autobiography “My Story” released on August 31, recounting Alfie’s amazing story. A live DVD of his ‘Bring Him Home’ tour which won over fans and critics alike was also released earlier this year. At the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert watched by nearly 17million viewers and in front of a 20,000 strong crowd at Buckingham Palace, he performed ‘O Sole Mio / Its Now or Never’ and duetted with the wonderful Soprano Renee Fleming performing ‘Somewhere’, on the palace balcony and to end Alfie has announced a full US tour, which is already selling-out venues everywhere.
His new UK tour which starts in March 2013, sees Alfie performing at the likes of Manchester Arena and the celebrated London Royal Albert Hall. The tour follows his new studio album expected to be released in early November 2012.
Alfie said: “I’m so excited to follow up the Bring Him Home Tour which was one of the highlights of my career so far. To be performing in arenas is a dream come true and I can’t wait to get back on the road and see all my fans again in 2013.”
