Russell Watson is coming to Skegness for a rescheduled date.

World-renowned classical singer Russell ‘The Voice’ Watson comes to Skegness this week following a cancellation earlier this month.

The star tenor was due to appear at the Embassy Theatre on Saturday, October 17, but the date had to be rescheduled after he fell ill.

The Salford-born singer is now set to appear at the venue on Friday at 7.30pm.

On the evening, he will be joined by Digby Military Wives Choir.

Russell released his chart-topping debut album The Voice back in 2000. He would go on to become the UK’s best-selling classical artist, with album sales totalling in excess of seven million worldwide.

A critical hit too, he was described by the New York Times as a performer ‘who sings like Pavarotti and entertains the audience like Sinatra’,

He has performed for some of the world’s most high-profile figures, including The Queen, the late Pope John Paul II, former US president Bill Clinton, and his collaborations include Luciano Pavarotti, Lionel Richie, Michael Bolton, Cliff Richard, Lulu, Sarah Brightman, and X Factor winner Alexandra Burke.

Friday’s show is billed as ‘a unique opportunity to hear ‘The Voice’ as you have never heard him before’.

Tickets for the Russell Watson - Up Close and Personal are priced at £45.00, £37.50, and £32.50. To book, call 01507 613100 or visit
