The ‘Home For Christmas’ shows will be Westlife's first indoor Dublin dates in over 11 years.
Following the success of their sold-out Irish and UK ‘Wild Dreams’ stadium tour, Westlife have announced two intimate shows at 3Arena on December 20th and 21st, 2022.
The quartet's highly anticipated ‘Home For Christmas’ shows will mark their first indoor Dublin dates in over 11 years.
Since their return to music in 2018; Shane Filan, Nicky Byrne, Mark Feehily and Kian Egan have experienced phenomenal success -including two albums hitting the No.1 and No.2 spots in the UK charts, some of their most successful radio records to date, and their fastest selling tours of all time.
Last summer, the band played sold out UK, Irish and European shows which included Wembley Stadium, as well as two nights at both Aviva Stadium and Páirc Uí Chaoimh. The remainder of the tour will expand into Asia later this year followed by a full run of UK arena dates.
Westlife have sold more than 55 million records worldwide and are the only band to have had 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 and counting.
Westlife’s ‘Twenty Tour’ sold a record 600,000 tickets across 27 cities and 13 countries, including two sold out shows at Croke Park, Dublin (150,000 tickets) and 160,00 tickets across their Dublin and Cork ‘Wild Dreams’ tour.
Their sold-out Wembley Stadium show featured numbers such as major 1999 hit 'Flying Without Wings', 'You Raise Me Up', 'When You're Looking Like That', 'Starlight', 'Uptown Girl', 'What About Now' and 'World of Our Own'.
It was the first time in the chart-topping band’s history that they have played at the famous venue, having formed in 1998. Mark Feehily, Shane Filan, Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan and Brian McFadden found fame with Westlife in the late '90s, but disbanded in 2018 after 14 years of success.
They reunited in 2018 without McFadden – who left the band in 2004, and has since teamed up with Boyzone’s Keith Duffy.
Tickets for Westlife's 3Arena dates from €72.10 including booking fee go on sale on Friday 16th September at 9am via Ticketmaster.ie
