Info for Back Together
They’re back. The world’s ultimate musical duo, Michael Ball and Alfie Boe, have missed each other, and we have missed them. Today the dynamic duo announces their stellar UK 2020 ‘Back Together’ tour including P&J Live on 23 February 2020.
Both singers have been extremely busy, with hugely successful solo albums, sell-out tours and both currently starring in Les Misérables in the West End, but it is the combination of these two arresting voices and personalities which proves to be irresistible to countless fans across the nation.
Louise Stewart, Head of Entertainment at P&J Live commented, “We extremely look forward to welcome Ball & Boe to our brand new venue P&J Live, who were hugely popular last time they played in Aberdeen. We know their fans will enjoy the incredible performance the duo will bring to the North-East.”
The 2020 ‘Back Together’ UK tour announcement follows the phenomenal success of the duo’s previous two duet albums; ‘Together’ their debut, which became the UK’s best-selling album of 2016 and beat the likes of Little Mix and The Rolling Stones to the Christmas No.1 spot, and the follow-up ‘Together Again’ which brought the pair yet another No.1 album in 2017. After meeting in a production of Kismet at the London Coliseum over 10 years ago, their instant camaraderie and professional mutual admiration proved to be the start of something very special indeed, and together they are unstoppable.
With decorated careers in theatre and opera, Ball & Boe were suddenly chart superstars. As a duo, they have now sold over 1 million albums in the UK, received two Classic Brit Awards, sold out two headline arena tours and presented two ITV Specials. As the Independent stated, “Their double act has enraptured crowds with warm, low-key charisma and deft stagecraft”. Michael Ball and Alfie Boe have both received countless prestigious awards, record breaking sales, and chart successes. Over his extraordinary 30-year career, Michael’s outstanding performances have made smash-hit box office history. He is a double Olivier Award winner, multi-platinum recording artist, top selling live concert performer and a hugely popular radio and TV presenter.
Alfie’s exceptional voice has made him Britain’s most popular and biggest-selling tenor. The Tony Award winner has conquered the world’s greatest opera stages and arenas, led the cast of Les Misérables, stole the show at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert at Buckingham Palace, and performed at the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations at Windsor Castle. Fans will be able to hear tracks from their brand new album ‘Back Together’, out on 1st November, along with many more favourites, as the couple embark upon a major arena tour across the country in 2020.

In 1970 he was one of four students selected to take part in master classes with Nadia Boulanger on her visit to the RCM and in the same year was awarded all the major composition prizes of the College, including the Octavia Travelling Scholarship, which he used to study with Franco Donatoni in Italy during the summers of 1972 and 1973. Whilst he was there, he participated in master classes with Luciano Berio and György Ligeti. Michael is active within all main areas of composition and his music is regularly played and broadcast, particularly in the United Kingdom and increasingly, world-wide. He has received many commissions, including five from the BBC over the last ten years, and has written several large-scale works for orchestra. Both Resurrection Symphonies (1982) and Danses vitales: Danses macabres (1987) were first performed by the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Edward Downes. Following Omaggio, commissioned by Timothy Reynish for the Royal Northern College of Music Wind Orchestra in 1986, his recent writing for wind and brass number Chaucer's Tunes (premièred at the 1993 BASBWE Conference by Stockport School Wind Band), Frontier!

A number of smaller choral pieces for both the church and the concert hall are also to be found in his choral catalogue Michael has also written several pieces for younger musicians, including his opera The Belly Bag, to a libretto by Alan Garner. Michael Ball lives in Ireland with his wife Miriam and young son, Alexander.
