Showcasing their phenomenal voices and undeniable on-stage chemistry, Ball and Boe’s irresistible charm will undoubtedly light up the big screen.

The Guardian called Ball & Boe’s 2020 UK tour “barnstorming”, while the Scottish Daily Mail said the duo “delivered a lung-bursting, crowd-pleasing evening”.

As a cinema exclusive, audiences will be treated to candid behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the duo.

Michael and Alfie said: “After a long and unexpected delay, we’re excited to finally be able to share the final show of our 2020 arena tour on the big screen.

“If, like us, you’ve missed the magic of live music during the pandemic, please come on down to your local cinema from October 17 to watch our concert filmed at the iconic O2 Arena in London.

“We had so much fun performing at this show before the world turned into a crazy place.

“Hopefully, we can spread some of that joy and live entertainment through the screens with you and all remember what it’s like to be at a concert.”

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 chart-topping album in 2017.

Last year they released their third record, Back Together, to great critical acclaim, scoring them yet another top five 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 one million albums in the UK, received two Classic Brit Awards, and sold-out two headline arena tours.

As solo artists, they have both received countless prestigious awards, achieved record-breaking sales and chart successes.

With a career spanning over 30 years, Michael Ball is a multi-platinum recording artist with two Olivier awards under his belt.

Alfie Boe’s outstanding voice has made him Britain’s most popular and biggest selling tenor.

Having performed on the world’s greatest opera stages and arenas, he has won a Tony Award, led the cast of Les Misérables and performed for the Queen at her 90th birthday celebrations at Windsor Castle.
