“I’m so excited to follow up the Bring Him Home Tour which was one of the highlights of my career so far. To be performing in arenas is a dream come true and I can’t wait to get back on the road and see all my fans again in 2013,” he said.

Tickets go on sale today.

Boe, the so-called Nation’s Tenor, sold out a 23-date UK tour of Britain’s concert halls this year.

He’s also sold 750,000 copies of his albums Bring Him Home and Alfie, whilst also fitting in a critically acclaimed West End run as Jean Valjean in Les Misérables. 

His autobiography, My Story, following a book deal with Simon & Schuster, was released last week. 

A live DVD of his Bring Him Home tour, which won over fans and critics alike, was also released earlier this year.

At the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert, watched by nearly 17 million viewers and in front of a 20,000 strong crowd at Buckingham Palace, he performed O Sole Mio / It’s Now or Never and duetted with soprano Renee Fleming, performing Somewhere, on the palace balcony.
