Michael Ball and Alfie Boe cancel show after star catches covid

Michael Ball and Alfie Boe’s picnic show in New Milton has been cancelled, after one half of the singing duo tested positive for covid. 

The duo were due to perform at the Chewton Glen Hotel in Christchurch Road on Tuesday, July 12. 

A spokesperson for the concert said: Sadly, due to Michael contracting Covid-19, we regret to inform you that the Michael Ball & Alfie Boe show at Chewton Glen will not be taking place tomorrow evening (Tuesday 12th July).   

“We are working hard to re-schedule the show and hope to announce a new date very soon.  We will keep you informed of any further developments as soon as we can.  

“Michael sends his apologies and is absolutely devastated that he’s unable to perform tomorrow evening, but he hopes to see you all soon.” 

Ball & 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. 

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.
