Singing sensation Russell Watson will be on tour in Autumn 2021, celebrating over 20 years since his debut album ‘The Voice’ was released.
‘The Voice’ entered the Official Classical Artist Album Chart at No 1, becoming the biggest selling classical album of 2000 and establishing the tenor as one of Britain’s most popular classical stars. In a very special concert, Russell will perform some of his most loved songs and career highlights from the past two decades.
Commenting on the tour, Russell Watson said “I can’t believe that next year will be over 21 years since my debut album The Voice reached Number 1! All of you made this & everything that followed possible and I am thankful to be able to celebrate with you on my Autumn 2021 tour!”
Russell’s rise is the stuff of fairytale, a movie script in-the-making that saw the former bolt-cutter and working mens’ club act top charts both at home and abroad, perform for Popes and Presidents and open global sporting events from Champions League and Rugby Cup Finals to the Commonwealth Games. Single-handedly, the People’s Tenor, as he was dubbed, created classical-pop crossover, a genre that hasn’t stopped snowballing since.
