The summer concerts are over and Alfie is in the US to start rehearsals for Broadway’s Les Mis. Ramin Karimloo will be a hard act to follow but I’m sure Alfie will do us proud – look out for the first night review in September.
Now, in case us Alfie Boe fans are likely to be ever so slightly down in the mouth and suffering from post Alfie concert syndrome, here’s a little something to keep you entertained. Back in March, I asked you what your top Alfie moments were and you responded enthusiastically as always. My top Alfie moments included meeting Alfie and hearing him sing Addio Signi di Gloria at Classic FM Live – click here to see the rest.
So, in no particular order, your top ten fan moments are:
- Nancy Webb meeting Alfie at the Utah concert in March this year and getting a photo.
- Pauline Partridge meeting Alfie unexpectedly outside the Blackpool Opera House and getting a photo.
- Marie meeting Alfie (again unexpectedly) in the bar of the Radisson Hotel, Glasgow after the Scottish Proms in the Park, 2013.
- Alfie giving his drumsticks to Linda W on the Bring Him Home tour 2011.
- The red carpet of the Classic Brits 2013 – Alfie bypassed the waiting press and came straight over to see The Two Linda’s and me. Later that evening he tweeted a photo of the 40th birthday card we had given him.
- Cecelia meeting Alfie outside the stage door of the Royal Albert Hall on the Storyteller tour and getting a photo (thanks to Nikki Lewis) – two actually as she spoiled the first one by giving Alfie a peck on the cheek!
- Pat, Janet and Cecelia seeing Alfie at breakfast the day the Azura cruise departed.
- Bring Him Home with John Owen-Jones at the Royal Albert Hall.
- Love reign O’er Me live for the first time.
- That show stopping moment when Alfie sang with the Jean Valjean Quartet at the Les Mis 25th anniversary concert – aka the moment most of us were Boed.
You picked some amazing top Alfie moments – again got goosebumps when watching the 25th anniversary video. Other than that, the top moments show how generous Alfie has been when meeting fans – at the Royal Albert Hall on the Storyteller tour, Alfie was actually in the car on the way home when he stopped and got out to sign autographs and have photos.
If you have any more fan memories you’d like to share, please leave a comment – we’d love to see them.

(Brazil-rj) Belfast June/2015 . Several moments to remember, especially … Out of the blue I see, very, very close (wet hair, …), those eyes! Do not look “smile Alfie” but the look (what I call) “Alfie irish”, penetrating gaze, raised eyebrow …. (‘amazeballs he looks’ too) Unforgettable, tattooed on my mind.
