With special guests including Robert Plant and How to Succeed's Nick Jonas, the album, according to press notes, "is a collection of timeless pop songs and musical theatre favorites from such classics as Phantom of the Opera, Ragtime, West Side Story and Les Miserables, to name a few."
The PBS television concert special "Alfie Live" will also be broadcast across the U.S. throughout the month of June (check local listings). Filmed in December 2011, the show features material from the new album as well as additional selections from Boe's debut album, "Bring Him Home."
Additionally, Boe will join Paul McCartney, Tom Jones, Elton John and more for the The Queen's Diamond Jubilee concert, which will be held June 4 in London. As previously reported, the concert will also feature a special song from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Gary Barlow. Highlights from The Queen's Diamond Jubilee will air June 5 on ABC.
Boe, who was seen on Broadway as Rodolfo in Baz Luhrmann's La Bohème, played the role of Jean Valjean in Les Miserables at The Queens Theatre in London and was also seen in Cameron Mackintosh's 25th Anniversary celebration of the show at London's 02 Arena. He is a regular performer with London's English National Opera, where he has played Nadir in The Pearl Fishers, and was seen at the Royal Opera House in Gounod's Roméo et Juliette.
