Revered for their spectacular live shows, created with visionary William Baker (Kylie, Leona, Bjork), the new tour will include the band’s biggest hits as well as tracks off their 2009 double platinum album ‘Where We Are’ and their brand new album ‘Gravity’ which is due for release 15 November.
Westlife are among the world’s most prolific touring acts, with nine sell out tours already under their belts, including playing to sellout crowds at the legendary Croke Park in Dublin. They have sold more tickets at London’s Wembley Arena than any other act and have played a record number of dates there, an amazing 25.
No pop band can compare to Westlife’s extraordinary success, having been certified by the BPI as the biggest selling band of the past decade. During their 11 years at the top of pop’s hierarchy, the band has sold over 43 million records globally. In the UK alone they have scored ten multi-platinum albums and a record breaking 14 No.1 hits (behind only Elvis and The Beatles). They have also picked up innumerable awards and appeared on hundreds of magazine covers around the world. They are the only recording artists to win the prestigious ‘Record Of The Year’ an incredible four times.
