“This time around we have the added bonus of new songs from the second album being featured. We also have some fantastic guests joining us – Imelda May and Jason Manford!

Ball and Boe: Together Again, the sequel to the duo’s first album Together, was not only 2016’s best-selling album in the UK, but soared to the Christmas No.1 album slot last year and has reached double-platinum status, with over 600,000 copies sold in the UK.
As two of the greatest voices in musical theatre, Ball and Boe bring the West End and Broadway classics back to life on ‘Together Again’. In addition to the songs performed in the show, the record features a wealth of additional hits from a ‘West Side Story’ medley to ‘Bring Me Sunshine’ to ‘New York New York’.
“There are definitely certain songs that lend themselves to a visual as well as vocal experience, so these were an easy choice for both album and show. We felt these types of songs would work really well for the audience, both in the studio and at home.” – Michael Ball
Ball and Boe Back Together will air shortly on ITV, STV and UTV.
