On This Day, 5 July 2015, Alfie Boe Sang…

… at the Royal Albert Hall in the world premiere of Pete Townshend’s Classic Quadrophenia.  Creating the role of Jimmy, Alfie was rarely off stage and winning over all the Who fans in the audience (thanks Linda W for sharing):

The evening itself was magical, beginning with a mass meet up of fellow Alfie fans and finishing with another stage door gathering, taking in a really fabulous performance in between.  Leaving aside Alfie’s flawless vocals, the most enjoyable part of the concert for me was the obvious chemistry between Alfie and Billy Idol – the two of them blew me away.  Interviewing Alfie a week or so later, I told him that I didn’t really know Billy’s music and he made me promise to get to know his music further; sorry, Alfie, I’ve not got there yet but I promise (really this time) to find out more.

As this phenomenal piece of music has only been produced in concert twice so far, I remain profoundly grateful that I was one of the lucky ones to be there for the premiere.

    This night was a highlight of my concert going life!! Alfie was KILLING IT as all on stage did that night but Alfie was magical and had the crowd, including the die-hard Who fans, in the palm of his hand the entire night. Looked like he was having a blast up there and definitely led his audience on an awesome Utopian concert experience!

    Meeting up with Alfie fans before the show was such fun as it’s so wonderful to meet like minded new friends and finally put faces to FB and Twitter posts. And, meeting again at Stage Door to see Alfie and say hello is always special. I will never forget the great fun and GREAT music that night.

    This past year has been awesome for Alfie fans especially the US fans this year with Broadway Les Miserable and Finding Neverland (until the injury, sorry), but I’m really looking forward to reports from his “Together Tour” with Michael Ball and all that the coming year will bring for Alfie and his fans! We know Alfie will not disappoint!!

    Get yourself all better, Alfie. We love you and are looking forward to all you are going to do. Thanks for taking us on your ride. <3
