SINGER and actor Alfie Boe has added a date in Bournemouth as part of his UK tour due to “popular demand”.

The singing sensation will perform at the Pavilion Theatre on Thursday, July 4.

It is one of five dates to be added Alfie’s summer tour.

Tickets for the extra dates go on sale at 10am on Thursday, March 28.

Alfie released his top 10 charting album Open Arms - The Symphonic Songbook in October.

A homage to rock, the album sees the tenor rework versions of rock’s finest tracks such as Bon Jovi’s Livin’ On A Prayer, Metallica’s Nothing Else Matters, Bryan Adams’ Summer of ’69 and many more into symphonic masterpieces.

With a career that has spanned 30 years, Alfie has triumphed on theatre stages and in concert halls around the world and has two recent UK number one albums under his belt for albums, Together and Together Again, made with his great friend Michael Ball.

The duo also won two Classic BRIT Awards earlier this year for best album' and group of the year.

His 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 and led the cast of Les Misérables.

He also performed at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert at Buckingham Palace, and at the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations at Windsor Castle.
