Following a 16-week sold-out run returning to the role of Jean Valjean at the 'All Star' concert of Les Miserables next year, Boe will be headlining his own concert at Newmarket Nights, performing some of his favourite songs and best known West End hits.

He has two UK chart-topping albums under his belt, and his two albums collaborating with Michael Ball have sold more than one million copies combined.
