The Jockey Club Live are delighted to announce that ALFIE BOE will be making his Newmarket Nights debut on Friday 14th August 2020.
Ever since he exploded onto the music scene nearly 20 years ago, Alfie has racked up one extraordinary achievement after another. He has multiple Number 1 albums to his credit, while ‘Together’, ‘Together Again’ and ‘Back Together’ his collaborations with good friend Michael Ball, have sold over a million copies. Having performed in some of the world’s greatest classical venues, he also has the rare ability to bring together all sorts of music lovers. Not many artists can lay claim to having appeared in the West End theatre, Broadway with lead roles in Les Miserables, La Boheme (which earnt him a Tony award) and a spectacular orchestral version of the classic rock album Quadrophenia. He is a singer who transcends categories. “When I look at the crowd at my concerts,” he says, “I can see I’ve got Who fans, classical fans, musical theatre fans and jazz fans as well.”
Having completed a 16 week sold-out run returning to the role of Jean Valjean at the ‘All Star’ concert of Les Miserables, which streamed the final show live to cinemas making it a big office hit, Alfie will be headlining his own concert at Newmarket Nights, performing some of his favourite songs and most well known West End hits.
Sophie Able, General Manager of Newmarket Racecourses, said
‘We’re very excited to be welcoming Alfie Boe to the July Course on Friday 14th August. Alfie Boe has one of the most recognisable voices in musical theatre and we can’t wait to see him bring the magic of the West End to Newmarket.’
