It's not every day you get a chance to see one of the finest singers to have ever toured, let alone played in Ireland, which is why there's so much buzz around Russell Watson announcing his date in The National Opera House on November 28th.
To date Watson has made nine studio albums, each one winning more critical acclaim that the previous, selling in excess of seven million albums worldwide, and earning him four classical BRIT awards. His first offering ‘The Voice’, held simultaneous number 1 slots in the US and the UK, a world first! It spent a record breaking 52 weeks at number 1 in the UK!
He has performed for some of the world’s greatest figures including The Queen, the late Pope John Paul II who requested a private audience with Russell at The Vatican, former US President Bill Clinton, The Emperor of Japan, European Prime Ministers, Middle Eastern Sultans and the King of Malaysia. The list is endless. Russell’s collaborations include Pavarotti, Lionel Richie, Michael Bolton, Cliff Richard, Lulu, Sarah Brightman, Meatloaf, Mel B, Alexandra Burke, Ashanti Cleopatra to name but a few.
Having overcome two life-threatening brain tumours, Russell is still very much the godfather of classical crossover, and is now back touring. Needless to say, this should be a very special gig, and one in high demand too, so we'd recommend book now to make sure you don't miss out on hearing ‘The Voice’.
