The Nation's tenor is at the Pavilions
IF YOU'RE one of those people who enjoy singing while they work, the chances are you'll soon have the rest of the workforce up in arms.
But if, by chance, you're overheard by a customer in the know, who thinks you'd achieve greater success with your voice than with a tyre wrench, then all that unsolicited vocalising might clearly have paid off.
Such is the fairy-tale story of Alfie Boe, a former apprentice at a sports car factory, and who now, according to some quarters, is referred to as "The nation's tenor".
Whether you subscribe to that view or not, Alfie is currently involved in a UK tour covering most of the country's top venues and appears at Plymouth Pavilions on Friday next week at 7.30pm. The event, of course, is already sold out, though it's always worth getting in touch with the box office (0845 146 1460) in case there are any ticket returns.

The evening will give Alfie the opportunity to sing Bring Him Home, the show-stopper from Les Misérables – the first song he ever performed on stage at age 14 – as well as being the title of his hugely-successful album, that stormed the UK Album Charts, reaching No 9, and going gold within weeks.
Katherine Jenkins follows Boe at the Pavilions on Tuesday, February 7 and, according to press office Rob Maltby, this looks like being another sell-out. Further details follow, nearer the time.
