Susan Boyle: Her first solo concert tour has almost sold out(Read article summary)
Susan Boyle: The Scottish singer's solo concert tour, consisting of seven dates in Scotland, is expected to sell out today. Susan Boyle rose to fame as a contestant on 'Britain's Got Talent.'
Reality singing star Susan Boyleâ€™s Scotland tour, her first-ever solo concert series, has already sold out almost all of its tickets.
Boyle, who received global attention when a video of her singing the Les MisĂ©rables song â€śI Dreamed A Dreamâ€ť on the TV show â€śBritainâ€™s Got Talentâ€ť hit YouTube, won second place on â€śBritainâ€™s Got Talentâ€ť in 2009 and has released four albums, with her most recent, titled â€śStanding Ovation: The Greatest Songs from the Stage,â€ť having been released last November.
Boyleâ€™s Scotland tour will last seven nights and will include stops in the Highlands, Aberdeen, and Edinburgh. Concert organizers told the Scotsman that 98 percent of the tickets for the tour had already been sold as of 4:24 p.m. Scotland time.
â€śAudiences can expect something from her past four albums, and something different. There will be a complete range of music, fro Tina Turner to Adele,â€ť an unnamed spokesperson for Boyle told the Scotsman. â€śThis tour is her way of thanking the Scottish public for their support since Britainâ€™s Got Talent. They have been unbelievable.â€ť
Boyleâ€™s debut album, â€śI Dreamed A Dream,â€ť became the fastest-selling album of all time in Britain. The singer published an autobiography titled â€śThe Woman I Was Born To Beâ€ť in 2010 and a musical, titled â€śI Dreamed A Dream,â€ť was created based on the book. â€śDreamâ€ť debuted in Newcastle in March 2012 and toured during that year. Elaine C. Smith, who co-wrote the script of the show, starred as Boyle and the production was mostly positively reviewed in the UK.
The singer is also making her acting debut with a film set in England in the late nineteenth century titled â€śThe Christmas Candle,â€ť which also stars â€śLes MisĂ©rablesâ€ť actress Samantha Barks. John Stephenson is directing the film and James Cosmo and John Hannah are co-starring.
