Aled Jones and Russell Watson announce 2019 UK Tour

Aled Jones and Russell Watson will be taking the record on the road for their first ever joint UK and Ireland tour throughout September and October 2019, bringing their live experience to some of the country’s most beautiful venues including the London Palladium, Gateshead Sage and the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall. Dates below.

As two of the classical world’s vocal powerhouses, Aled and Russell have received countless prestigious awards, record-breaking sales and chart successes. Over his extraordinary 30 year career, Aled’s outstanding performances have made smash-hit box office history. He is the original crossover star and has sung for the Pope and the Royal Family, received an MBE, released over 30 albums – with over 10 million album sales and counting – and has over 40 silver, gold and platinum discs. After beginning his career at the age of 12, Aled became one of the world’s most successful boy sopranos, releasing 12 hit albums in 4 years with the defining moment being ‘Walking in the Air’, the hit song from the family-favourite, Christmas animated film ‘The Snowman’.

As a broadcaster, Aled has forged an extensive career, having presented across BBC Radio 2 & 3 and BBC Radio Wales. Aled also hosts the Classic FM Sunday Breakfast Show and has become a popular favourite on the station and enjoyed his own show ITV Weekend.

Despite humble beginnings, Russell’s exceptional voice has led him to become one of Britain’s most popular and biggest-selling classical stars – triumphing on both sides of the Atlantic, spending fifty-two consecutive weeks at No.1 in the UK and the US classical charts at the same time. With over seven million albums sold, he has achieved six top ten albums and received four Classic BRIT Awards.

Like Aled, Russell has performed for some of the world’s most notable figures including the Royal Family, the Pope, former US presidents Bill Clinton and George W Bush, the Emperor of Japan and in front a of a worldwide audience of one billion at the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in 2002.

Aled and Russell’s friendship began almost 20 years ago. Their instant camaraderie and professional mutual admiration made for the perfect pairing and, no doubt, to the delight of their hundreds of thousands of fans across the globe, they are happy to announce their first album together, In Harmony – A testament to the popularity and talent of the UK’s finest classical voices, featuring a cherry-picked repertoire of personal favourites.
