Italian job for Boe on his brand new tour

Alfie Boe has announced that his new album will be released this October and he will bring his tour to Nottingham’s Capital FM Arena on December 3.

He has also confirmed that New Zealand trio Sol3 Mio will be joining him on his arena tour later this year.

In his 2013 tour sold out, which included two nights at London’s Royal Albert Hall, Boe played to almost 80,000 fans. This new tour follows the news of Alfie’s new album.

“Italian folks songs have been a part of my life ever since I was a kid chasing after the ice-cream van with my friends while it blasted out O Sole Mio. None of us knew what the song was.

“Well, I didn’t until my Dad played a version of it sung by Enrico Caruso after one Sunday lunch. I knew it sounded familiar but couldn’t place it, all I knew was that it made me feel happy. Thanks Dad, for teaching me so much.

“Since those days, I have sung many songs, but I’m always drawn back to this area of music.

“I think because it’s spontaneous. And the songs themselves are simple but about the biggest and best things: love, loss, journeying away, coming home, family, living life. In Italy especially, this music is just in the people, a part of everyday life.”
