Westlife ‘s Wild Dreams Tour 2022 will be Westlife’s biggest shows to date! Kian, Nicky, Mark and Shane have announced a tour of the UK and Ireland from July to December 2022, with tickets on sale now.
Westlife Tour 2022
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 August 2022. These will be part of the Wild Dreams tour, covering some of the biggest venues in the UK.
The Twenty Tour back in 2019 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 2022 stadium gigs will be even bigger and better… we can’t wait!
Described as a “once in a lifetime event”, Westlife’s gig at Wembley Stadium in August 2022 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. So far a total of 16 dates have been announced for the UK and Ireland tour in 2022.

What can we expect from shows on Westlife’s 2022 tour?
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
What’s the setlist for the Westlife tour in 2022?
Westlife haven’t revealed the setlist for the 2022 Westlife concerts yet. We expect the shows to include some of their greatest hits from through the years, such as ‘Swear It Again’, ‘Flying Without Wings’, ‘World of our Own’ and ‘You Raise Me Up’. The tour adverts state “All the hits”, so we also expect to hear newer material from the Spectrum album and the Wild Dreams album.
See the setlist from 2019’s Twenty Tour.
Are the shows being filmed or recorded? Will there be a DVD?
We don’t know if the shows will be recorded yet, as soon as we know we’ll post details here.
Westlife – Twenty Tour DVD
A DVD and bluray of Westlife’s previous tour was released in March 2020, titled ‘Westlife: The Twenty Tour Live from Croke Park’.
The DVD was filmed at Westlife’s homecoming gig at Croke Park in Dublin on 6 July 2019. A camera crew followed Westlife backstage, for some behind-the scenes documentary style clips. The DVD release also includes a live CD.
What time will Westlife come on stage?
Show times haven’t been announced yet, but for the Croke Park gigs in Dublin in July 2019, show timings were roughly as follows:
5.00pm Doors open
5.45pm First support act
6.50pm Second support act
8.15pm Westlife on stage
Show times may vary for the 2022 shows. For many of the 2022 shows the doors open at 6pm, one hour later than the times shown above – please check with the venue for timings if you are going to a show!
Are there any Westlife tour dates outside the UK & Ireland?
No other international shows have been confirmed yet for 2022, however Shane said that the Dublin show on Friday 8 July 2022 was “going to be the start of our world tour” (Source: @Kev_OMahony). Kian previously 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!”Source – @KianEganWL
It seems likely that there will be a worldwide tour announcement soon…In fact, Shane said in 2019 that Westlife hope to tour in Germany:
“Next year we’re hoping to come to Germany… Germany’s definitely part of our plans for next year. We really want to come back and play the big cities, and come back and see our German fans”Source – Golden Kamera interview, March 2019
Kian also mentioned in an interview with Warner Music Korea that the guys are hoping to come to Korea in 2022 if possible:
“As far as we’re concerned, we would love nothing more than to come back to Korea and perform for you guys, it’s very much on our list of countries that we want to get to, so stay tuned and hopefully we can get there next year.”source – warner music korea, november 2021
South America, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa have also been mentioned as possible destinations for the world tour, but Westlife haven’t confirmed any international tour dates yet.
