Westlife are back with The Twenty Tour! Celebrating 20 years of hits including 14 No.1s.
Following their recently announced reunion, Shane, Nicky, Mark and Kian have today announced they’ll be touring in 2019, celebrating the twentieth anniversary of Westlife. The UK leg of the newly announced tour kicks off in Manchester on 30 May 2019, taking in a total of nine shows and ending at the Echo Arena, Liverpool on 25 June 2019.
The shows will mark the first time the band has toured together since their break-up in 2012.
Westlife first broke into the charts with their debut single Swear It Again. Released in April 1999, the song peaked at No.1 on the Official UK Singles Chart where it remained for two weeks. The track was the first single to be taken from the boys’ debut album Westlife. In total, five singles from the debut topped the chart in the UK – Swear It Again, If I Let You Go, Flying Without Wings, the double A-side I Have a Dream/Seasons in the Sun and Fool Again.
A phenomenal chart success, Westlife went on to release ten studio albums throughout their career, all of which charted within the top five of the Official UK Albums Chart and six of which peaked at No.1. In total, the band have released 14 chart-topping singles, including My Love, World of Our Own, Unbreakable, You Raise Me Up and the hugely successful cover version of the Billy Joel song Uptown Girl.
The new tour dates will see Westlife perform all fourteen of their No.1 hit singles, as well as performing some brand new songs live for the first time, with a new record deal signed and a new album is on the way.
