Crooner Michael Bolton will dedicate two of his upcoming London concerts to members of the British armed forces.
The singer will be joined onstage by a band of British solders whose album, Coming Home, has become a hit on the British charts. The group – who call themselves The Soldiers – is made up of Trooper Ryan Idzi, Sergeant Major Gary Chilton and Sergeant Richie Maddocks, and has pledged all proceeds from the album to servicemen’s charities.They will join Bolton onstage at the Royal Albert Hall on November 2 and 3.
“I have great pleasure in welcoming The Soldiers to the shows at the Royal Albert Hall because I have always expressed 100 per cent support for the military at home and abroad,” said Bolton. "It is because of these people, the bravest of us all, that we have the lives and liberty that we cherish.
“From visiting military hospitals in the USA, it only emphasizes that these people should get all the respect and support they deserve from all walks of life including those in the entertainment industry.
"I for one, cannot wait to see them take to the stage next week and wish them all the best in their future careers, both as servicemen and as future singing stars."
