FLEETWOOD singing superstar Alfie Boe has added a second Blackpool date to his nationwide tour next year.
Following his triumphant performances at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert earlier this year and an extensive US tour, Alfie has added four extra dates to his biggest UK tour for 2013 including a second hometown show at Blackpool Opera House.
He will now be appearing on Friday April 12 after the first concert on Thursday April 11 sold out.
Alfie said: “I’m so excited to follow up the Bring Him Home Tour which was one of the highlights of my career so far. To be performing in Blackpool again is a dream come true and I can’t wait to get back on the road and see all my fans again in 2013.”

Alfie recently signed a book deal with Simon & Schuster, with the autobiography My Story released last August, recounting his ruse tio fame.
