Alfie Boe, 48, has been currently touring in the US, scheduled to finish in Las Vegas before coming to the UK for his summer tour. The singer, however, has taken to Twitter to share some sad news as he’s announced he has had to cancel his Utah show due to a “family emergency”.
Alfie took to Twitter in view of his 116,700 followers to share the announcement.
The statement read: “Update regarding my show in Utah on Monday 9th May.
“Due to a family emergency I am truly gutted to have to postpone my upcoming show in St George’s Musical Theatre, Utah on 9th May.
“My team is currently working on a new date and I just hope you can all make it.
Alfie has been taking part in BBC’s Freeze the Fear, with the star recently opening up on the show about his divorce from wife Sarah in 2020.
The opera singer explained he overdosed and ended up in rehab, as well as admitted he still missed his ex-wife.
He said on the show: “When my separation happened initially I went to a really dark place, it’s weird to talk about it, I’ve not spoken about this in public, but I am willing to if it can help anybody out there who needs that.
“I’ve gone through beating myself up and hating myself, not having any love for myself.
“It resulted in a foolish act of throwing some pills down my throat because I had lost my way.
“It was just one thing after another, travelling, on the road a lot, having to say goodbye for months at a time was hard.
“I ended up in a rehabilitation facility for about five weeks, and it was a scary time.”
Alfie concluded that he wanted to open up about his battle with his mental health so that he could help others in the same situation.
