eMusic Live to livestream Alfie Boe and Friends at the Savoy Hotel in global exclusive

The Tony Award-winning tenor will be joined by Gary Barlow, Amanda Holden, Freddie Fox and Jason Manford for the worldwide livestream from London's Savoy Hotel

7digital (AIM: 7DIG), the global leader in end-to-end digital music solutions, is pleased to announce that its joint venture eMusic Live will be the exclusive livestream platform for Alfie Boe & Friends: Live at the Savoy 'THE LOCKDOWN EDITION' on Saturday 10 April 2021, performed to audiences worldwide. Tickets are available from today on eMusic Live.

eMusic Live is hosting the livestream performance which will stream the multi-camera, hour-long concert that includes special guests Gary Barlow, Amanda Holden, Freddie Fox and Jason Manford. A portion of each ticket sold will be donated to Hospitality Action, the UK hospitality industry's benevolent charity, and The Connection at St. Martin's, which supports thousands of homeless people to move away from sleeping on the streets.

In addition to music performances, the livestream will make use of a range of commercial and engagement tools available through eMusic Live. This will include exclusive merchandise, fan live chat and VIP experiences such as a personalised meet-and-greet with Alfie Boe.

Alfie Boe OBE, a veteran of the London stage and Broadway, boasts more than a million album sales and multiple sell-out tours, performing at both the Royal Festival Hall and the Royal Albert Hall. He shared a Tony Award for La bohème in 2003 and is also known for his lead performances as Jean Valjean in the musical Les Misérables and as J.M. Barrie in Finding Neverland.

Paul Langworthy, CEO of 7digital, said: "It's a real thrill for eMusic Live to be hosting Alfie Boe and a star-studded line-up for a night of unmissable musical entertainment, streamed exclusively to audiences worldwide from the iconic Savoy Hotel. With eMusic Live's advanced monetisation tools, Alfie will be able to engage remotely with fans in new and exciting ways and generate maximum revenue for two very worthy causes.

"The magic of eMusic Live is that it creates immersive livestreams for artists seeking new ways to monetise performances and engage with global audiences. Since its launch, the platform has already hosted more than 50 livestreamed performances, and we are set to unveil a swathe of exciting shows in the weeks and months to come. We expect this to increase further following our livestream event with Alfie Boe which will act as a showcase for eMusic Live in the UK. We look forward to updating the market on the success of eMusic Live and its contribution to the growth of 7digital."

Alfie Boe commented: "I cannot tell you how exciting it is for me to perform at the legendary Savoy Hotel with my friends. I wanted to come together in front of our fans who can't be in the room with us yet in order to help lift people's moods and share memories of celebrated musicians who have set foot in the Savoy Hotel and have had an influence on my life - from rock band Queen to world-renowned Frank Sinatra, David Bowie, and Judy Garland. The eMusic Live platform has created a new way for us to take the virtual stage to our fans, enjoy some songs, raise a glass or two from home, and I hope people enjoy it!"
