Alfie Boe coming to the Open-Air Theatre

Alfie Boe is to headline a concert at Scarborough’s Open-Air Theatre on Armed Forces Day - 30 June.

The tenor and actor sang at the venue with his friend Michael Ball this summer, when the audience got drenched as it poured down for most of the show.

Alfie says: “This summer’s show there with Michael was played in horrendous weather conditions. The rain was something else that night, but the audience was simply fantastic. Neither Michael or myself will ever forget that night.

“I now can’t wait to bring my own show back to Scarborough – hopefully this time in the bright Yorkshire sunshine! I will be performing some new material alongside plenty of the songs the fans know and love”.

The singer says he loves playing at the Open-Air Theatre. “The audiences are always so warm and up for a good night. The fact this is Armed Forces Day will make the occasion extra special”.

Steps and Gary Barlow have already been booked for the theatre next summer.

Alfie Boe tickets cost £32.50 plus fees and go on sale on Friday 1 December at the venue’s box office, at the town hall and online at www.ticketmaster.co.uk and www.scarboroughopenairtheatre.com.
