RUSSELL Watson fans will be able to get Up Close and Personal when the singer treats them to material from his latest nationwide tour.

The international star, known as The Voice, will make his third visit to Hartlepool in June during his Up Close and Personal Tour.

We are looking forward to singing again with Russell in front of another sell out terrific Hartlepool audience

Duncan Graham – Hartlepool Male Voice Choir

Hartlepool Male Voice Choir, who Russell will be performing alongside, have released new details about the concert at the Borough Hall, which is expected to be a sell out.

Russell will perform with the choir, and alone, and the choir will make its own contribution to the evening.

Choir chairman Duncan Graham said: “His two sets at the concert will draw from the material he is using on the tour.”

The choir has also been very busy recently preparing for two other major concerts, one a Choral Spectacular at The Sage, in Gateshead.

The second is a concert for the Mayor of Hartlepool’s chosen charities alongside the Hartlepool Ladies Choir, not to mention several concerts for local charities.

But Duncan added: “we are now fully focused on the Summer Concert and looking forward to singing again with Russell in front of another sell-out terrific Hartlepool audience.
“However, If you haven’t acquired your tickets yet there is still time.”

The concert is on Saturday, June 20, and seats cost £35, or £25 for a slightly restricted view.
