Tickets are still available – although not many – for Russell Watson’s visit to Preston Guild Hall next Tuesday.
Russell is officially the UK’s best selling classical artist ever and has won four Classical BRITS.
He has performed for some of the world’s greatest figures including, 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.
He has also recorded nine studio albums, each one winning more critical acclaim than the one before, and of which he has sold more than seven million albums worldwide. His first ‘The Voice’, held simultaneous number 1 slots in the US and the UK, a world first.
Russell’s collaborations include Pavarotti, Lionel Richie, ,Michael Bolton, Lulu, Sarah Brightman, Meatloaf, Ashanti and Cleopatra.
Having overcome two life-threatening brain tumours, Russell is a patron for many health charities and has raised millions for The Prince’s Trust, The Katy Holmes Trust, The Kirsty Club, and the Bob Champion Cancer Trust.
Russell is still very much the godfather of classical crossover. This concert is a unique opportunity to hear ‘The Voice’ as you have never heard it before.
