Westlife – the UK’s top album selling group of the 21st Century – will tour the UK in 2020 with their 15-date Stadiums in the Summer Tour.
The spectacular summer tour comes to Gloucester’s Kingsholm Stadium on Sunday 12 July, will see the global pop kings perform all of their greatest hits including ‘Swear It Again’, ‘Flying Without Wings’ and ‘You Raise Me Up’ as well as sensational 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 in Gloucester”, say the band.
The show will include an impressive stage and production, unlike anything seen at Kingsholm Stadium before. Fans will have the opportunity to experience their favourite band up close with access to the Golden Circle.
The tour, which covers some of the biggest outdoor venues in the UK, will conclude with Westlife’s first-ever Wembley Stadium show on Saturday 22 August.
The Stadiums in the Summer announcement follows the phenomenal success of Westlife’s remarkable comeback and comes as the band prepares to release their brand new album ‘Spectrum’ on 15th November. The Kingsholm Stadium date is presented by Music Plus Sport and follows the stunning success of this summer’s ‘Twenty Tour’ – Westlife’s fastest selling tour of all time.
