Russell performed live at the iconic venue alongside the forty-eight piece National Symphony Orchestra, wowing the audience with powerful renditions of classics such as 'Somewhere' and 'Ave Maria' . He closed the show with a Royal Albert Hall roof-raising 'Nessun Dorma'.
The concert marked an emotional return to the stage for Russell who has come back into the spotlight following his recent recovery from two brain tumours.
At the concert Russell made an emotional opening to his fans after recieving a standing ovation when walking out on stage; "It's difficult to find words to explain how I feel tonight… because I built myself to this moment from the very day that I finished my last session of radiotherapy. I remember going to bed dreaming about this night in the most famous of venues on the planet and here I am, thank God – I can't believe it."
