Alfie Boe formerly known as ‘The Nation’s Favourite Tenor’ has announced details of his second UK arena tour for 2014 with a date at Capital FM Arena Nottingham on 3 December 2014.

The tour follows the news of Alfie’s new album ‘Trust’ which is due for release on November 11. His new tour will see Alfie Boe draw upon his new album and previous repertoire.

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. Given UK album sales of well over one million, the tour was a triumphant cap to his career – so far.

That’s not all, Alfie continues to impress, stealing the show at last summer’s Jubilee Concert at Buckingham Palace and then releasing his best-selling autobiography ‘My Story’. Not content with just music, Boe is stretching out in other ways too. He’s previously starred on Broadway in film director Baz Luhrmann’s acclaimed staging of La Bohème. But this autumn he makes his acting debut. In the upcoming second series of ITV’s hit period drama Mr Selfridge, Boe appears as a tenor named Richard Chapman. In the 1914-set show, he plays a crucial role in one of the story lines in the series about the founder of the eponymous London department store.
