Following the stunning success of their Platinum selling album Together and 29 sold out shows across the UK in 2016, Michael Ball and Alfie Boe today announced they will play Scarborough Open Air Theatre in 2017.

The nation’s favourite musical theatre star and its most beloved tenor will perform outdoors at some of the UK’s most beautiful stately homes and venues next summer before an arena tour in December.

And music promoters Cuffe and Taylor are delighted to reveal that as part of this UK tour Michael Ball and Alfie Boe will head to Scarborough Open Air Theatre on Wednesday June 28.

Tickets for the concert go on sale at 10am on Friday.

Michael and Alfie said: “There are simply no words for how incredible this is for us. We have always wanted to work together, it was just a case of getting the timing right.

“We are so grateful to all our fans who have supported us and everyone involved for believing in us. We are literally having the best time and are so happy with the success of the album and the tour.”

Michael and Alfie, who first performed together a decade ago in Kismet at the London Coliseum, have received a plethora of prestigious awards, record-breaking sales and chart successes.

The two critically-acclaimed artists released their Number One album Together on Decca in October. It features a stunning repertoire from the greatest Broadway shows as well as classic songs both stars have always wanted to record.

Together has gone Platinum in just six weeks and is on track to become the biggest selling domestic release of 2016.

Michael and Alfie join Cliff Richard, The Beach Boys, George Benson, Jess Glynne, Olly Murs, UB40 featuring Ali, Astro and Mickey Virtue and indie stars The Charlatans among the star-studded headliners already announced at Scarborough OAT for 2017.

Peter Taylor, director of Cuffe and Taylor, said: “What can you say about Michael Ball and Alfie Boe that has not been said already – they are quite simply musical superstars.

“Following the release of their stunning new album they have been packing out theatres across the UK. Nobody is going to want to miss them together on stage at Scarborough Open Air Theatre – this is going to be a really, really special night.”
