TWO of the world's greatest voices have announced a picnic concert in the New Forest this summer.

Michael Ball and Alfie Boe, who have enjoyed phenomenal success with their duet albums in recent years, will perform in the ground of luxury hotel Chewton Glen in New Milton on July 12.

Ball and Boe’s debut release Together became the UK’s best-selling album of 2016 and beat the likes of Little Mix and The Rolling Stones to the Christmas No.1 spot. Their follow-up Together Again brought the pair yet another No.1 album in 2017, and Back Together, their third album, landed them the No.2 spot.

In November 2020, Michael and Alfie released a collection of Christmas classics (along with a self-penned track from Michael), which, again, topped the Official Albums Chart.

As a duo, they have now sold over 1.3 million albums in the UK, received two Classic Brit Awards, sold out two headline arena tours and presented three ITV Specials.

After meeting in a production of Kismet at the London Coliseum more than a decade ago, it is the combination of their incredible voices and instant camaraderie that has proved irresistible to fans.

Chewton Glen, a Relais & Chateaux coastal hotel and spa on the edge of the Forest, is also hosting the rearranged An Evening With Michael Buble on July 18.

Tickets for Michael Ball and Alfie Boe are on sale now via Ticketmaster.
