Story by Jack Foley

RUSSELL Watson has announced a 21-date UK tour in the Spring of 2011, which will include a show at London’s Royal Albert Hall in May 3.

In addition, Russell’s eagerly awaited new album, La Voce – recorded in June 2010 with the Roma Sinfonietta; Ennio Morricone’s orchestra of choice – will be released on Russell’s new label Epic Records on November 29, 2010.

Returning with a stronger, more driven and powerful voice, his renditions of Pino Donaggio’s Io Che Non Vivo (Senza Te), Mario Lanza’s Arrivederci Roma and Parla Piu Piano (the theme from The Godfather) promise to astound his fans.

With Russell accompanied by an accomplished orchestra, demand is expected to be incredibly high.
