Westlife – the UK’s top selling album group of the 21st Century – will tour the UK in 2020 with their 15-date Stadiums in the Summer Tour.

The summer tour, which includes a date at Kingsholm Stadium on Sunday 12 July 2020, will see them perform all of their greatest hits including  ‘Swear It Again’, ‘Flying Without Wings’ and ‘You Raise Me Up’ as well as up-tempo new songs from their forthcoming new album ‘Spectrum’.

“The reaction to our comeback tour was beyond anything any of us ever imagined so we’re going to do it all over again but this time in some of the largest outdoor venues in the UK. The shows are going to be incredible and will include all our greatest hits. We can’t wait to perform at Kingsholm Stadium”, say the band.

Westlife have sold more than 55 million records worldwide and are the only band to have their first seven singles enter the UK chart at No.1.

They also have the most singles of any artist to debut at No.1 in the UK. Overall the band have had an incredible 14 No.1 singles, behind only Elvis Presley and The Beatles.

They have had 33 No.1 albums worldwide and as a live act have sold 5 million concert tickets worldwide.
