Michael Ball and Alfie Boe are to attempt to break the world record for the most public visits by a musical group.

The classical singing duo will attempt to beat the current record held by Irish boyband Westlife, who visited five cities in 36 hours in 2002.

The pair will head to five cities in 24 hours on the release date of their second album 'Together Again', which is released on October 27, kicking off in Alfie's hometown of Blackpool before they hit HMV stores in Sheffield, Manchester and Nottingham to sign albums for fans.

Of the record attempt, Michael and Alfie said in a joint statement: "We are ecstatic (and slightly nervous) to be taking on a new challenge, especially one that allows us to meet fans all over the country! What better way to celebrate the new album?"

Chinese-speaking tennis umpires bring the house down

  Chinese-speaking tennis umpires bring the house down Foreign umpires at the China Open have been unintentionally entertaining the crowds and earning hearty applause with their attempts at pidgin Chinese.  Some of the officials, who come from a range of countries, are using very basic Chinese for the first time at the Beijing tournament to give instructions to the ball boys, ball girls and unruly spectators.Among the words they have learnt is the equivalent of towel to remind the ball boys and girls when players need a wipe-down and then saying "xiexie" (thank you).

Two of the greatest voices in the world, Michael Ball and Alfie Boe , have received countless prestigious awards, record -breaking sales and chart successes. Now they bring their Together tour to Australia this October.
