An Evening With Alfie Boe
One of the world’s greatest classical singers Alfie Boe brings it back to Sage Gateshead following the release of his vibrant and instantly classic album As Time Goes By.
The record celebrates the golden era of music from the 30s and 40s, a time that is often overlooked – sandwiched between the roaring 20s 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 No.1 albums under his belt for 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 the great songs from my previous records, but more than anything I 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!”
