Back Together Tour 2020
They’re back. The world’s ultimate musical duo, Michael Ball and Alfie Boe, have missed each other, and we have missed them. Today the dynamic duo announces their stellar UK 2020 ‘Back Together’ tour.
Both singers have been extremely busy, with hugely successful solo albums, sell-out tours and both currently starring in Les Misérables in the West End, but it is the combination of these two arresting voices and personalities which proves to be irresistible to countless fans across the nation.
The 2020 ‘Back Together’ UK tour announcement follows the phenomenal success of the duo’s previous two duet albums; ‘Together’ their debut, which became the UK’s best-selling album of 2016 and beat the likes of Little Mix and The Rolling Stones to the Christmas No.1 spot, and the follow-up ‘Together Again’ which brought the pair yet another No.1 album in 2017.
After meeting in a production of Kismet at the London Coliseum over 10 years ago, their instant camaraderie and professional mutual admiration proved to be the start of something very special indeed, and together they are unstoppable.
With decorated careers in theatre and opera, Ball & Boe were suddenly chart superstars. As a duo, they have now sold over 1 million albums in the UK, received two Classic Brit Awards, sold out two headline arena tours and presented two ITV Specials. As the Independent stated, “Their double act has enraptured crowds with warm, low-key charisma and deft stagecraft”.
Michael Ball and Alfie Boe have both received countless prestigious awards, record breaking sales, and chart successes. Over his extraordinary 30-year career, Michael’s outstanding performances have made smash-hit box office history. He is a double Olivier Award winner, multi-platinum recording artist, top selling live concert performer and a hugely popular radio and TV presenter.
Alfie’s exceptional voice has made him Britain’s most popular and biggest-selling tenor. The Tony Award winner has conquered the world’s greatest opera stages and arenas, led the cast of Les Misérables, stole the show at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert at Buckingham Palace, and performed at the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations at Windsor Castle.
Michael Ball is one of Britain's most famous musical performers, having starred in countless Broadway and West End shows. In 1998, he won the Variety Club of Britain's Best Recording Act Award and has a loyal and dedicated fan base. As well as on stage, he performs regularly on television and film and is a committed charity worker. He has a very special place in the hearts of his fans who have supported him for over twenty years.

Alfred Giovanni Roncalli Boe was born in Blackpool to opera loving parents, with his Mother from Co. Mayo and his father from Norway. In this short time he has moved from being a Car Mechanic to an award winning Broadway star. His enchanting voice has captured the hearts of audiences and critics on both sides of the Atlantic. Alfie has moved further away from his traditional operatic repertoire on recent recordings and has never sounded so coolly contemporary, applying 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’. His repertoire draws on the full range of his musical interests, from pop to rock to classical to musical theatre.

Johnny Mac and The Faithful
Johnny Mac and the Faithful are a band of lifelong friends who can kickstart any party with their jamboree of celtic-folk and Rock ‘n’ Roll. Performing with their hearts on their sleeves, their barn-bursting set, influenced by their love of The Pogues, Bruce Springsteen, Woodie Guthrie and The Waterboys managed to attract the attention of none other than Sir Rod Stewart, which led to them being asked to open for Rod to warm up the crowd on his largest ever UK outdoor stadium tour in 2019 playing to over hundreds of thousands of fans.
