The Twenty Tour
It’s time to dig out your diary and save the date(s)…Westlife have announced their comeback tour in 2019!
The tour’s called The Twenty Tour as the guys will be celebrating an amazing 14 number 1’s and 20 years of hits! (No, we can’t believe it’s been 20 years either…)
Kian, Nicky, Markus, and Shane will be touring the UK & Ireland with a selection of our favourite hits from through the years, plus some new material from the forthcoming album.

What’s the setlist?
Westlife will be singing a selection of hits from the last twenty years. The setlist hasn’t been revealed yet, as the guys are finalising which songs to include.
Shane said in a Facebook Live interview in February 2019 that the setlist is likely to be made up of around 80% old songs, with a few new ones, such as the new single, Hello My Love. There’s some debate over which songs to include – Westlife asked fans to choose between:
- Against All Odds or I’m already there (fans voted for I’m already there)
- Fool Again or Unbreakable (fans voted for Fool Again)
The guys may well be singing Happy Birthday on a couple of the dates, as Mark’s 39th birthday is on the date of the first show in Glasgow (28 May), and Shane’s 40th birthday is the day of the first Croke Park show (5 July). Both should be memorable nights!
Will more dates be added?
Asia tour dates were announced on 21 March and we anticipate that more international dates are yet to be announced!
UK & Ireland dates have been added since the tour was first announced, due to to huge demand . These new dates include:
- Two additional dates for Belfast mean that the tour starts a little earlier than first announced, now beginning on 22 May
- A third and final extra date for Manchester was announced for 29 June
- A fourth and final extra date for Glasgow was announced for 28 May
- Most recently, two dates have been announced for Cardiff on 1 and 2 July
We’ll update the list above if and when additional tour dates are announced.
