Ahead of Russell's concert in Bournemouth in May ,this article is in the Bournemouth Echo
Why star Russell Watson is keen to stay in the spotlight
SINGING star Russell Watson is visiting Bournemouth next month as part of his nationwide tour.
This week he talks to The Guide about how his near death experience changed his outlook on life, and why he is determined to sustain his music career - just don’t ask him to sing Nessun Dorma!
Russell who will visit the BIC on May 12, says he always looks forward to visiting Bournemouth.
“I always love Bournemouth because it’s right by the seaside and I always do a few seaside gags. It’s a good size place and people are usually up for a good time.
“This time we are taking the orchestra and we will perform a mixture of everything I’ve recorded over the last 17 years combined with material from my new album. I like to involve the audience too and have a laugh with them.”
Russell's new single 'Now & Forever' from his album True Stories is in the All Access Cool new music chart in USA
which is great news.
