The show will see the superstar duo take on their favourite musical theatre, pop and rock tracks, including songs from The Lion King, The Greatest Showman and The Phantom of the Opera, as well as a beautifully arranged Queen Medley. Showcasing their phenomenal voices and undeniable on-stage chemistry, Ball and Boe’s irresistible charm will undoubtedly light up the big screen.
As a cinema exclusive, audiences will be treated to candid behind the scenes footage and interviews with the duo.
Michael Ball commented, “So excited we are going to be able to share our final show from the iconic O2 Arena in London on the big screen. The Les Mis concert live screenings showed me that you can experience and relive the magic of a unique live performance all over again and the quality and intimacy are somehow heightened. If you couldn’t make it to one of our shows this is your chance....and if you did let’s do it all over again on March 28/29th!!!! See you there xxx”
Alfie Boe added, “What better way to end our 'Back Together' live tour than performing at the O2 Arena in London and filming it to go out in cinemas – over 1000 screens across the country. No pressure for us then! So whether you saw us live, or not, we promise to entertain you and have a lot of fun doing so! Spread the word, treat the family to some popcorn and come and join us. It's just after Mother’s Day too… so there’s your gift sorted! Hope to see you all there! Alfie xx "
Ball and Boe’s debut album Together became the UK’s best-selling album of 2016 and beat the likes of Little Mix and Rolling Stones to the Christmas No.1 spot. The follow up Together Again brought the pair a second No.1 album in 2017, and in 2019 they released their third record Back Together to great critical acclaim, scoring them yet another top 5 chart position.
Meeting over a decade ago in a production of Kismet at the London Coliseum, the pair struck up an instantaneous friendship, going on to become chart superstars. As a duo, Ball and Boe have now sold over 1 million albums in the UK, received 2 Classic Brit Awards, and sold out two headline arena tours.
