Leeds Millennium Square

A few weeks ago, in response to fan photos of meet and greet opportunities with Alfie Boe, we looked at two stories in more depth.  In a second instalment, here are two more stories, from Cathy Rogers Sarabia (my birthday twin) and Julie Connolly.  Here is Cathy’s story:

I’ve met Alfie several times at stage doors and M&Gs, and he always shows up smiling, courteous, generous, and so funny! My first time was in London for his birthday party back in 2011, before Les Mis at The Queens Theatre and after we sang to him, he recommended we work on our singing. The last time was in NYC at The Metropolitan Opera House after Classic Quadrophenia, and when he flashed me that smile of recognition and waved to my daughter hiding in the back, my heart nearly melted. In between those two times were, I don’t know 10 or 11 more meetings, from Broadway theatres, to nightclubs, concert halls, Opera Houses, bookstores; and every time he amazes me with his kindness to fans and seeming shock and surprise that he is loved so much by so many people. I think my favourite picture with Alfie is from Frederick, Maryland back in 2013. It was a spontaneous decision to stay after that concert and sometimes no preparation is the best preparation!

 

The second story is from Julie in 2015:

My son shared a house with one of Alfie’s nephews. He took me back stage at Leeds Millennium Square. Alfie saw me, stood up and came straight over to talk to me. He was lovely, polite and friendly. I will never forget it!

 

What fabulous stories ladies – and equally fabulous photos too!

… his new, original song, Against the Tide, at the final date of his mini summer tour, Leeds Millennium Square:

Prior to writing this, I hadn’t listened to the song for a while and yet again, I’m reminded how much I love it.   Judging by the way he has the audience singing away by the end, I’m not alone in this opinion. Wouldn’t it be great if he recorded it one day, although with the next album being the Michael Ball collaboration, I fear we won’t hear a recorded version just yet.  By the way, even if you’re not a fan of this particular song, I’m confident there’s plenty in the video to keep everyone happy.

This last week has seen a new Alfie Boe summer concert date released – Leeds Millennium Square on 24 July.  Regular readers will remember that this was hinted at for a while but it’s now been confirmed!  Tickets are on sale next Friday 13th March – hopefully not unlucky for those buying tickets!

Alfie also kept us amused while he was in London for Classic Quadrophenia promotional work – check out this photo with Phil Daniels.  Any guesses what he’s laughing at?

Those of you who keep an eye on the Alfie Boe Upcoming Events page will know that a possible date for 24th July has been in the air for a while…this has now been confirmed as Leeds!

Alfie will perform in  an outdoor concert in Millennium Square which will hopefully see him perform Serenata songs as well as musical numbers – having said that, Alfie does like to change it up a bit so who knows what his repertoire will be by the time the summer comes!

Tickets will be on sale from Ticketmaster and Leeds City Centre box office from Friday 13 March – check back here for the details nearer the time (click here for further information).
