Door2Tour.com Reveals That Andre Rieu Significantly Outsells Alfie Boe
LARKFIELD, England, April 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Door2Tour.com has announced that, even though talented showman Alfie Boe will be hitting the road in 2013 for his biggest tour to date, it would appear that customers of Door2Tour.com would still prefer to see Andre Rieu in concert.
Door2Tour has noticed that tickets to see Alfie Boe perform are not selling like 'hot cakes' as originally thought. Instead, people just cannot get enough of Andre Rieu, with his tour packages outselling any other product available on the website.
Rachel Jones, Door2Tour.com's Online PR and Marketing Coordinator, commented: "When we first heard that Alfie Boe will be touring in 2013, we automatically assumed that our concert coach packages for this event will be flying off the shelves; but instead our customers have shown very little interest in seeing him perform live.
"With us, it would appear that Andre Rieu is still the favourite, and this was evident when tours to his concert in Maastricht went on sale. These packages sold out within minutes, with many customers calling to be added to the cancellation lists, as they had missed the boat. Maybe the popularity of the Alfie Boe breaks is due to the fact that people do not know that we have packages available to see him live."
For those who do not know, Alfie Boe has conquered the West End. After slaying 38,000 enraptured fans as Jean Valjean at the Les Miserables 25th Anniversary O2 concerts, the relentless standing ovations he received there continued throughout his five month run at the Queen's Theatre. There Alfie transformed the role, bringing a powerful new experience to musical theatre stalwarts. In 2011, he enjoyed Top 10 success with his first album 'Bring Him Home', which has so far sold a quarter of a million copies. The infamous video of him singing 'Nessun Dorma' in the kitchen of Matt Lucas' home has become a YouTube sensation.
It looks like Alfie Boe will not be resting on his laurels in 2012, with a new album 'Alfie' to promote, working on his autobiography and rehearsing for his upcoming tour.
Following on from the success of his 'Bring Him Home' tour, Alfie Boe will return to the stage in 2013 for his biggest UK tour to date. It is an opportunity for fans of the West End superstar to see the talented showman live at Birmingham's National Indoor Arena, performing classic arias, songs from the musicals and some of his best-loved, chart-topping hits.
Jones concluded: "Hopefully as fans of Alfie Boe realise that we have tour packages available, we will begin to notice an increase in sales. At the moment, Andre Rieu is most definitely our customers' favourite. Â We've noticed that every time Andre Rieu announces a new tour, our coach packages to the event literally fly off the shelves, and this year is no exception. Although he will not be touring until the end of the year, our customers just cannot get enough of him and demand for his shows remains exceptionally high."
Alfie Boe tour packages for his Birmingham dates include return coach travel, hotel-to-venue transfers, one night's bed and breakfast accommodation, a ticket to see Alfie Boe perform live at the NIA in Birmingham (ticket upgrades available), a visit to Stratford-upon-Avon for shopping/sightseeing and the services of a tour manager throughout.
