Easter Memories with Alfie Boe

Easter in 2013 was a bit earlier than in 2014, which meant that we were all done and dusted by the end of March. In the UK, this coincided with the coldest winter and spring for 50 years – it was bitter! However, for those of us who are Alfie Boe fans, this meant we had plenty of time in which to stand around the various stage doors of Alfie’s first arena tour, Storyteller. The one that springs to mind is the Royal Albert Hall which was perishing but lovely as we all had time to chat. Many people had come a long way to see Alfie, including Margie from Australia and Roberta from New York (click here for their Alfie story) and waiting at stage doors became a way of chatting with fans we had previously only met online.
Easter Sunday last year was 31 March and Alfie’s tour date that night was in Plymouth. There is not as much YouTube footage from this one as some of the other tour dates and so it is one of those that tends to be overlooked. Let’s put that right. This is one of my favourite songs from the Storyteller tour, Jim Hendrix’s Angel:

By the way, some readers have asked how I choose the video clips for the blog. There’s no mystery about it, they’re just the ones I like the best and that fit with the required theme! If anyone wants to suggest videos for future blogs, please share by commenting here xx

  1. I absconded and headed for Brighton from Manchester to see Alfie. That meant travelling on Good Friday and Easter Sunday for hours on a coach which went in and out of London rather than direct. Family working so fine, and we had all Easter Monday together. Lovely trip. Great rehearsal with Alfie showing Little Alfie his drum kit. Great stage door with Margie getting her photo and kiss. Dinner organised by Sally and long awaited meet up from four continents. Made time to visit Brighton Pavilion with brisk walks on the front. And a wonderful concert. A wonderful Alfie performance. A real Easter to remember for me.

  2. We had such a fantastic time in Brighton. I’ve never worn an overcoat, beanie, gloves and scarf to the beach before! Lovely lunch of fish and chips at the pub on the pier, then later the meet up that Sally organised. So great to have Aussies, Brits and US fans at the table. Fantastic concert, very funny incident when Alfie forgot the words to ‘If I Can Dream’. The stage door was brilliant (even if the cold meant my feet were numb). As tojaf has said, I got my beautiful photo, a hug and a kiss from the Artist and then went back to the B&B where a few of us kicked on until 3 in the morning. What a great experience!! I will treasure it forever.
