It’s time to dig out your diary and save the date(s)…Westlife have announced their comeback tour in 2019!
The Westlife Twenty Tour
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 — they’re reported to be releasing a new single written by Ed Sheeran.
See the full list of Westlife tour dates for 2019 announced so far below…

Will more dates be added?
Due to huge demand, extra dates have been added since the tour was first announced. These new dates include:
- Two additional dates for Belfast (meaning the tour starts a little earlier than first announced, 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 – these go on sale on Friday 14 December.
We’ll update the list above if and when additional tour dates are announced.
Are there any gigs outside the UK & Ireland?
No shows outside the UK and Ireland have been confirmed yet, but Kian has reassured fans that the guys intend to tour more widely:
“To all our fans who feel disappointed that their country or city isn’t in the first dates please do know this. We intend to reach every city in the world that has a hunger to see Westlife live!”
