In a special homecoming concert, Alfie Boe will play Fleetwood FC’s Highbury stadium on 2 June 2018. The concert will be the largest ever seen in Fleetwood, which is of course the town where Alfie grew up.
Alfie is super excited to be playing in his home town as evidenced here:
Being Fleetwood born and bred and a fully fledged member of the Cod Army it’s an honour and a privilege to be performing back in my home town and at my team’s home ground. I hold Fleetwood close to my heart and I’m so happy to be coming back to entertain family and friends.
This will be Alfie’s second show in Fleetwood in the space of twelve months, as he performed a couple of songs when his blue plaque was unveiled at the Marine Hall where Alfie made his debut as a performer at the tender age of fourteen. This honour was presented as part of the BBC Music Day celebrations in June this year and Alfie was also an BBC Music ambassador in 2017.
Despite a hectic work schedule and a home in America, Alfie always keeps Fleetwood and the Fylde Coast close to his heart and is a passionate supporter of the local hospice, Trinity and Brian House, becoming patron several years ago. As such, £2 from each ticket sold will go to the hospice, considerably contributing towards their annual £5M+ running costs. Head of Fundraising, Linzi Young, said:
This is quite incredible news for the Hospice. Alfie has been our patron for five years and has helped us launch various fundraising campaigns, has sent videos of support for events such as our annual Ball, and has also sent private messages to some of our patients and their families facing very difficult circumstances. He is a man with a big heart, as well as a big voice. His global fan base is a window on the world for us; fans from across all continents get involved and send donations to Trinity in his name. We feel very privileged indeed to have the support of Alfie and his team.
Yet again fans can enjoy Alfie’s music whilst also supporting his charities – a win win for everyone!
