MANILA, Philippines — The long-awaited return of Westlife to the Philippines happens on Sept. 29 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. You ready?
Westlife members Shane Filan, Mark Feehily, Kian Egan and Nicky Byrne debuted in 1998 when they opened for Boyzone and the Backstreet Boys in Ireland. Since then they have received many awards and broke numerous records worldwide. In the UK alone, they’ve had 14 number one hits. Westlife is the fourth biggest selling boyband in the world with over 44 million albums sold.
“Gravity Tour” is Westlife’s 11th concert tour to date. Known for their impressive concerts, for this tour, the group collaborated with creative director William Baker, known for his work with Kylie Minogue, Leona Lewis and Bjork. The group has stated this tour to be “bigger and better”, and is expected to perform their biggest hits and more, including “Flying Without Wings”, “Swear It Again”, “You Raise Me Up”, “World of Our Own”, “Uptown Girl”, “When You’re Looking Like That,” and “Safe.”
Although five years have passed since the group’s last appearance in the Philippines, the return of Westlife has been greatly anticipated by their longtime fans. Westlife’s local fanbase has been active throughout the years, especially the members of Official Westlife Fan Club Philippines and Westlife Philippines who have joined forces to support their favorite group.
