The band made the announcement in Cork this morning.
Westlife have today announced that they will perform their first-ever Páirc Uí Chaoimh Stadium show on Friday 28 August 2020, subject to licence.
It follows the success of this summer’s ‘Twenty Tour’, which sold a record 600,000 tickets across 27 cities and 13 countries, including two sold out shows at Croke Park, Dublin (140,000 tickets).
Shane, Nicky, Mark and Kian confirmed the news in Cork this morning at a media conference.
The spectacular concert will see the global pop kings perform their greatest hits including 'Swear It Again', ‘Flying Without Wings’ and ‘You Raise Me Up’ as well as songs from their forthcoming album ‘Spectrum’ such as ‘Hello My Love’, ‘Better Man’ and ‘Dynamite’.
It will be the first time, in the band’s 20-year career that Westlife have headlined Páirc Uí Chaoimh Stadium, and follows the phenomenal success of their comeback.
Speaking about the announcement today, the band said: “Headlining Páirc Uí Chaoimh for the first time ever is a dream come true for all of us. We’re incredibly excited for a show which will be different and more spectacular than anything we’ve ever done before."
Last Friday, Westlife announced they will headline Wembley Stadium, London, UK on 22 August, making them the second only Irish act alongside U2 to achieve this.
Westlife have sold over 55 million records worldwide and are the only band to have their first seven singles enter the UK chart at No.1.
