Everything you need to know as live entertainment returns to the UK.
Westlife have confirmed that they’ll be taking to London’s Wembley Stadium on 21 August 2021, having rescheduled this year’s show.
“In line with the continued U.K. government advice surrounding mass gatherings, we have been advised to postpone our show at Wembley Stadium to Saturday August 21st, 2021,” Shane, Nicky, Mark and Kian say. “We want to reiterate that the safety of our fans and crew is our priority. Rest assured, we are working closely with our team on the rest of our 2021 UK touring schedule and we hope to bring you more news when the time is right.”
Tickets for the 2020 date remain valid. Fans who purchased tickets through Ticketmaster will be contacted by our Customer Services team with more information.
The show follows on from last year’s Twenty Tour tour, and will see the four-piece joined by James Morrison and All Saints on the bill.
The Irish pop music icons will perform their hits, taken from a catalogue including Swear It Again, Flying Without Wings, Unbreakable, When You’re Looking Like That and World of our Own as well as tracks from their new album Spectrum.
The album’s lead single, Hello My Love, was released in January 2019, followed by second single, Better Man, in March.
Third single, Dynamite, was released in July and featured a music video shot at Arena Birmingham in the United Kingdom and in Croke Park in Dublin, Ireland, where they performed the song live for the first time.
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.
The group have released ten studio albums in their career so far, all of which landed 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 No.1 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.
