Russell Watson, aka ‘The People’s Tenor’, will be touring the UK in 2020 to celebrate 20 years since his debut album ‘The Voice’ was released. Here’s everything you need to know.

Russell Watson will tour the UK in 2020 to celebrate 20 years since the release of his No. 1 album The Voice. Released in 2000, it went on to become the biggest selling classical album of that year.

The tenor will be joined on his upcoming tour by a 33-piece orchestra and choir for eight UK performances of his most loved music.

“I can’t believe that next year will be my 20th anniversary, yes 20 years since my debut album The Voice reached Number 1,” he said. “All of you made this and everything that followed possible, thankful to be able to celebrate with you on my Autumn 2020 tour!”
