Let’s be clear, what Michael Ball & Alfie Boe do is not rocket science – it is simply two big personalities with two even bigger voices offering unique synergy. Collectively they make a glorious noise which their fans adore!
Last year TOGETHER by Alfie and Michael was the UK’s #1 best selling Christmas album having sold over 600,000 copies – a remarkable achievement.
You can’t buy their effortless class and talent. Most importantly they look and sound 100% comfortable whilst having the time of their lives. Their chemistry is infectious.
Their 2nd album is released next week. TOGETHER AGAIN isn’t trying to be new or clever – it simply gives the fans even more of what they want. GENIUS!
Their voices blend magnificently and have never sounded more rich or powerful. The orchestrations on this new album are sensational and their song choice is perfect.
In a time of reality TV, gobshite ‘celebrities’ & social media – B&B have gone back to basics. They offer mega talent, slick performance, schtick and the ‘stick to what you know; old-school adage – ‘give them what they want’. A 5* masterclass on all of the above.
If you like Boe & Ball separately or together, you’ll LOVE their new album out October 27th. ‘Again’ has taken ‘Together’ to the next level.
See them on tour this winter. BOOK TICKETS HERE!
‘Together Again’ features glorious new arrangements from ‘West Side Story’ as well as a gorgeous version of ‘The Rose’, a haunting version of ‘The Prayer’, an epic & enchanting version of the Lion Kings’ ‘He Lives In You’ and even the ultimate showstopper – ‘New York New York’.
‘Bring Me Sunshine’ is a fun & surprising big band version of a much loved classic. The irony that B&B are becoming the new Morcombe & Wise is not lost.
‘Evermore’ from Beauty & The Beast celebrates the drama of their gifts for voices. You’ll love their version of ‘White Christmas’ – a perfect and moving finale to this album.
B&B are back on ITV this Autumn for their 2nd ITV Special ‘Ball and Boe: Back Together’ on October 29th at 9pm.
