The ultimate musical duo, Michael Ball and Alfie Boe, are ‘Back Together’ and set to delight cinema audiences up and down the country with the final show of their UK tour from earlier this year.
Presented by CinemaLive, leading producers and distributors of event cinema, Michael Ball & Alfie Boe: Back Together, will be shown in over 1,000 screens in cinemas which are re-opening across the UK and Ireland, including major multiplexes and many independent cinemas and arts centres.
Recorded at London’s O2 Arena on the last date of their 2020 tour earlier this year, the show, which is postponed from its original screening in March, will now come to cinemas from 17th October 2020.
The show sees the superstar duo take on their favourite musical theatre, pop and rock tracks, including songs from the Lion King, The Greatest Showman and The Phantom of the Opera, as well as a beautifully arranged Queen Medley. Showcasing their phenomenal voices and undeniable on-stage chemistry, Ball and Boe’s irresistible charm will undoubtedly light up the big screen.
The Guardian called Ball & Boe’s 2020 UK tour ‘barnstorming’, whilst the Scottish Daily Mail said the duo ‘… delivered a lung-bursting, crowd-pleasing evening.’
As a cinema exclusive, audiences will be treated to candid behind the scenes footage and interviews with the duo.
Michael and Alfie commented: “After a long and unexpected delay, we’re excited to finally be able to share the final show of our 2020 Arena tour on the big screen. If, like us, you’ve missed the magic of live music during the pandemic, please come on down to your local cinema from 17th October to watch our concert filmed at the iconic O2 Arena in London.
“We had so much fun performing at this show before the world turned into a crazy place. Hopefully, we can spread some of that joy and live entertainment through the screens with you and all remember what it’s like to be at a concert.”
Ball and Boe’s debut album Together became the UK’s best-selling album of 2016 and beat the likes of Little Mix and Rolling Stones to the Christmas No.1 spot. The follow up Together Again brought the pair a second No.1 album in 2017, and in 2019 they released their third record Back Together to great critical acclaim, scoring them yet another top 5 chart position.
As solo artists, the pair have both received countless prestigious awards, achieved record breaking sales and chart successes. With a career spanning over 30 years, Michael is a multi-platinum recording artist, having two Olivier awards under his belt and becoming a popular radio and TV presenter. His incredible live performances have smashed box office records.
Alfie’s outstanding voice has made him Britain’s most popular and biggest selling tenor. Having performed on the world’s greatest opera stages and arenas, he has also won a Tony Award, led the cast of Les Misérables and performed for the queen at her 90th birthday celebrations at Windsor Castle.
