Alfie Boe announces 2014 UK Arena tour

Alfie Boe

Story by Jack Foley

ALFIE Boe, formerly known as ‘The Nation’s Favourite Tenor’, has announced details of his second UK arena tour for November and December 2014.

The tour follows the news of Alfie’s new album, Trust, which is due for release on November 11.

Alfie Boe has moved further away from his traditional operatic repertoire on Trust, the follow up to 2012’s hugely successful Storyteller and has never sounded so coolly contemporary.

Working with legendary producer Larry Klein, Alfie applies his extraordinary voice to a soulful set of country and blues, folk and gospel, standards and originals such as, Georgia On My Mind, You’ve Got A Friend and Glory, Glory Hallelujah.

This was influenced by his most recent UK concert dates, where the repertoire drew on the full range of Boe’s musical interests, from pop to rock to classical to musical theatre.

Over the sold-out run of the Storyteller tour, which included two nights at London’s Royal Albert Hall, Boe played to almost 80,000 fans.

This autumn, Boe will also make his acting debut in the upcoming second series of ITV’s hit period drama Mr Selfridge. He will appear as a tenor named Richard Chapman.

In the 1914-set show, he plays a crucial role in one of the storylines in the series about the founder of the eponymous London department store.
