Westlife Tour 2020 – Kian, Nicky, Mark and Shane have announced a ‘Stadiums in the summer’ tour of the UK and Ireland from June to August 2020 – their biggest ever shows to date!
Westlife 2020 Stadiums in the Summer Tour
Following on from Westlife’s successful comeback tour The Twenty Tour in 2019 (so named as the band celebrated 20 years of hits!), Westlife have announced massive stadium shows in the UK and Ireland in 2020.
The Twenty Tour took Westlife across 27 cities and 13 countries in the UK, Ireland and Asia. The tour included two sold out shows at Dublin’s Croke Park stadium, and totalled 600,000 tickets sold. The 2020 stadium gigs look to be even bigger and better!
Westlife have announced 16 UK dates for their new Stadiums in the Summer Tour, which covers some of the biggest outdoor venues in the UK. It will be the band’s first UK-wide outdoor tour in over eight years.
The final gig of the UK tour is at Wembley Stadium in London in August 2020. Described as a “once in a lifetime event”, it will be Westlife’s biggest ever concert. The performance at Wembley will be followed by two shows at 45,000-seat Cork Stadium (Páirc Uí Chaoimh) in Ireland in the following week.

What can we expect from the Westlife stadium shows?
Details are still to be revealed, but we can be sure that the stadium shows will be spectacular! Westlife performed two shows at Dublin’s Croke Park stadium on The Twenty Tour in 2019 which featured impressive stage effects by the designers of the famous Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas.
Westlife have promised another ‘spectacular’ show:
“We’re over the moon to announce we’re going to be playing Páirc Uí Chaoimh in Cork for the first time ever next year!
We can’t wait to bring this show to Ireland which will be more spectacular than anything we’ve ever done before.
Headlining Páirc Uí Chaoimh for the first time ever is a dream come true for all of us.”Source – Irish Mirror
