The line up of for the Queen’s 90th birthday celebration concert has been announced today and it includes Alfie! Sharp eyed fans who noticed that Alfie’s current performance schedule for Finding Neverland shows a gap between 11 – 18 May won’t be surprised. The concert will be broadcast live on 15 May – it will be hosted by Ant and Dec so we may yet get to see Alf and Dec on the same screen! Alfie said he was “honoured to be involved in the celebrations of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II birthday celebration concert at Windsor Castle”.
Alfie seems to be a firm favourite with the Royal Family and has performed for them many times before but perhaps the most famous is the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012 (thanks to Nikki for sharing):
I wonder what he’ll sing?

Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday celebration is definitely going to be one of those days that this yank will be wishing she were English. My very American mother shared with me her love of Queen Elizabeth when I was but a tiny little girl in New York City. One of my fondest memories of childhood was when mom and I together were glued to the radio in 1953, listening to Queen Elizabeth’s coronation. We had yet to purchase a television but the announcer’s excellent narration, mom’s wonderful tales of Elizabeth’s story book life and my own childish imagination aided with photos from “Life Magazine” of crowns, scepters, royal jewels and thrones in majestic Westminster Abbey absolutely mesmerized me. And I’ve never recovered from that dazzling memory: my fascination, respect and admiration for Her Majesty and a life lived with grace has only grown. Besides, HRH and I have something very special in common: both of us adore the same fantastic tenor:Alfie Boe!!!
