[LA BROHEME] Breathlessly sold by U.K. broadsheets, the Alfie Boe story—a Zeppelin-loving karaoke champ supposedly discovered crooning arias beneath a lorry undercarriage on the streets of Northern England shore town Fleetwood—has clear marketing advantages above Boe's actual education at the Royal College of Music or Tony-winning turn (as Alfred Boe) in Baz Luhrmann's MTV-informed 2002 Broadway production of La Boheme. But, my stars, imagine a country in which tabloids actively care about classically trained heartthrobs! This first substantial tour of the states, coinciding with the U.S. distribution of second release Alfie, concentrates upon the usual middlebrow mélange of Sondheim standards, but, as befitting album guest spots by Robert Plant and a Jonas Brother, don't be surprised by more than a few pop-rock selections interspersed within the repertoire.
