MICHAEL BALL & ALFIE BOE LAND THEIR SECOND NO.1 ALBUM
Michael Ball and Alfie Boe have been awarded a No.1 album for a second year running with their new album ‘Together Again’, hitting the top spot in their first week of release. They duo continue to claim 2017 as their year, having performed across the globe, reached double-platinum status AND had a second ITV special in the past few months.
Of their monumental chart success, Michael and Alfie said, “We could never have imagined being here with our second number 1 album. Thank you to all of our amazing and supportive fans who have been with us every step of the way. We could not have done it without you and we can’t wait to share the new album with you on the road!”
On the release day of ‘Together Again’ last week, Ball and Boe smashed a world record in an unprecedented amount of time. They raced across five UK cities in under 12 hours to sign as many albums as possible.
Their first round of signings began in Alfie’s hometown of Blackpool before they hit hmv stores in Sheffield, Manchester, Nottingham and flew into London in a ‘Boe & Ball’ helicopter. But five cities was never enough, the following week they visited two more cities, Liverpool and Birmingham, to meet hundreds more fans and have their albums signed.
Plus following the huge success of their first special in 2016, the pair returned to screens for their own ITV Special ‘Ball and Boe Back Together’ on 29th October. These two vocal powerhouses performed some of their favourite hits, showcasing their unique blend of extraordinary talent alongside their infectious humour.
The No.1 album follows the runaway success of the duo’s debut record ‘Together’, which was not only 2016’s best-selling album in the UK, but soared to the Christmas No.1 album slot last year and has reached double-platinum status, with over 600,000 copies sold in the UK.
Ball and Boe will be embarking on another major arena tour across the country later this year, starting in Cardiff on 30th November and concluding at London’s O2 Arena on 14th December.
