IRISH POP SUPERSTAR ANNOUNCES
SECOND LEG OF HIS UK TOUR FOR 2016
Due to phenomenal demand, Westlife frontman Shane Filan has announced the second leg of his major indoor UK Tour for October 2016. In the wake of the huge success of his 'Right Here Tour' in early 2016 and the success of the 'Right Here' album, the Irish pop sensation will be giving fans the opportunity to see him perform Westlife favourites as well as his own recent tracks.
The autumn 'Right Here Tour' is being promoted and produced by LHG Live by arrangement with Solo and will see Shane Filan perform in some of the best loved theatres and venues all over the UK, giving fans the opportunity to see him doing what he loves best; entertaining and singing from the heart.
Shane Filan said, "The Right Here Tour' earlier in the year was fantastic and I was really proud of how we visited so many different venues and places that I hadn't performed in before. It was incredible to see the reaction from fans, to have them there with me enjoying the songs and joining in! The tour was such as great experience and we have had so many requests for more dates that we thought we might as well give the fans what they want, and go back out on the road in October. I am really excited about this new phase of the tour and looking forward to seeing everyone."
The release of the 'Right Here' album has cemented Shane's position as one of the UK's most popular male solo artists, following his amazing success as frontman with Westlife - one of the world's most successful bands of the last few decades - and the new tour dates promise to show just why Shane is so well loved in his own right.
The album 'Right Here' was mainly recorded in London and Denmark, with Shane working on the music with Cutfather (The Saturdays, JLS), Jez Ashurst (Will Young, Gabrielle Aplin), Jon Maguire (Union J) and Tre Jean-Marie (MNEK, Jason Derulo). It was released on 25th September 2015 and reached Number 1 on the Irish Album Charts and the UK Top 20 in its first week.
The earlier 'Right Here Tour' dates took place in March 2016 and visited 19 locations across the whole of the UK and Ireland.
Westlife had fourteen chart topping singles and forty-four million sales. Their career, Shane says, "fulfilled all of our dreams 1,000 times over." It's been a remarkable journey for a singer songwriter who grew up inspired by an admiration of Backstreet Boys and Michael Jackson.
Westlife frontman Shane Filan kicks off his October 'Right Here Tour' on 12th October at the Caird Hall in Dundee followed by nine other dates in venues all over the UK. Tickets go on sale Friday 27th May.
Liz Doogan-Hobbs MBE, CEO of LHG Live said, "We were delighted to promote and produce Shane's first 'Right Here Tour' at the beginning of the year, which was hugely successful, and given the demand from fans to see him at so many other places UK wide, we jumped at the opportunity to release further dates for the autumn. Shane is one of the most talented artists in the UK today and we know the October tour will prove incredibly popular."
