Royal variety Performance

All posts tagged Royal variety Performance


Summer is here and it’s another chance to look at Alfie Boe’s fabulous repertoire, with Joan Mould’s Six Sensational Songs.  Joan first became aware of Alfie at the Royal Variety Show and until Kenwood recently, had yet to see Alfie live.  Hope you enjoyed it Joan!  Here are Joan’s choices.

Bridge Over Troubled Water, from Storyteller.  Joan heard this on iTunes and thinks it’s “the best version I’ve ever heard”.  I’m with you there, Joan!

Run, from the VE Day celebrations, is the fans favourite live song by a long way, winning the annual best live Alfie Boe song every year since 2015.

Bring Him Home.

In My Daughter’s Eyes, for Joan’s two grown up daughters.

Keep Me In Your Heart – my favourite!

Empty Chairs and Empty Tables, with Nick Jonas, Marius from the Les Mis 25th Anniversary concert.

Thanks Joan for letting us hear your six sensational songs.

Wow, what a week since the last Friday Round Up!  I saw Alfie Boe in Leeds and Manchester and had a truly wonderful time.  The teething problems of Newcastle had all been ironed out and the whole show was superb.  That said, and with the benefit of hindsight, Alfie’s throat problems were slightly in evidence and sadly, this led to the postponement of the Brighton gig on Tuesday.  Really hope that all those who missed out are able to get to the rescheduled date (unknown at this point).

The Bournemouth concert did go ahead though and click here to see a fantastic review by a new Alfie Boe convert from the Dorset Echo.  At the same time, Alfie was appearing on the Royal Variety Performance on ITV.  He first led the audience in the National Anthem right at the top of the programme and then later sang Luna Malinconia from, of course, his new album, Serenata.  Just when we thought it was all over, he then appeared in the finale singing a line from Sinatra’s Fly Me To The Moon, along with Demi Lovato, Shirley Bassey, Ellie Goulding, Bette Midler, Mick Hucknall and Michael McIntyre.

Also this week it was announced that Alfie is to return to summer music festivals next year, with an appearance at the Scarborough Last Night of the Proms on 27 June 2015.  The date marks National Armed Forces Day and the Military Wives Choir will also appear.  Another festival, Alive @ Delapre follows on 19 July – click here for tickets.  In addition, you can also see Alfie in a more intimate setting in Northern Ireland.  Billed as an Intimate dinner and an up close and personal performance by Alfie, tickets for the Culloden Estate on 15 and 16 June 2015 are on sale from ticketmaster.

Serenata is available now:

Fantastic news! Alfie Boe’s Serenata has entered the Classical Album Charts at number 3…closely followed by a surprise re-entry from You’ll Never Walk Alone at number 8!

 

I’m guessing Alfie will be occupied with rehearsals this week  – seriously counting down the hours !!!!!!!  We also have the Royal Variety Performance to look forward to on 8th December and a Strictly appearance at some point; again, although we know he recorded an appearance this weekend we have no idea when it will be shown.

Updated post (March 2015):

Alfie’s appearance on the Royal Variety Performance on ITV was broadcast on 8 December 2014. He first led the audience in the National Anthem right at the top of the programme and then later sang Luna Malinconia from, of course, his new album, Serenata. Just when we thought it was all over, he then appeared in the finale singing a line from Sinatra’s Fly Me To The Moon, along with Demi Lovato, Shirley Bassey, Ellie Goulding, Bette Midler, Mick Hucknall and Michael McIntyre.

New backstage photo of Alfie (and Sarah) during filming of the Royal Variety Performance:

The comedian Sarah Millican tweeted from the recording that Alfie was currently “nailing” it, as the video shows:

On his appearance on the show, Alfie said:

It’s such an honour to be a part of The Royal Variety Performance.  Getting to share the stage with such amazing stars and the honour of performing in front of royalty and the nation is truly an amazing opportunity.

Alfie Boe’s album Serenata is now available:
