Westlife Tour 2022 will be Westlife’s biggest shows to date! Kian, Nicky, Mark and Shane announced a ‘Stadiums in the summer’ tour of the UK and Ireland. Although the 2020/21 Westlife UK and Ireland tour was cancelled due to the covid pandemic, the Wembley and Cork dates have now been rescheduled for August 2022.
Westlife Stadiums in the Summer Tour Dates
Following on from Westlife’s successful comeback tour The Twenty Tour in 2019 (so named as the band celebrated 20 years of hits!), Westlife announced massive stadium shows in the UK and Ireland. They had originally announced 16 dates for Summer 2020, covering some of the biggest outdoor venues in the UK. Sadly due to the coronavirus pandemic the 2020 tour dates were cancelled, as were the re-scheduled dates in 2021. Shows at Wembley, UK, and Cork, Ireland have been rescheduled again and will go ahead in August 2022.
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 2021 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.

Who are the support acts?
Emile Sandé is due to support Westlife at the Cork Páirc Uí Chaoimh Stadium concert.
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
Kian shared highlights from Westlife’s Twenty Tour on instagram, saying that the stadium shows are “what dreams are made of”.
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 including ‘Swear It Again’, ‘Flying Without Wings’, ‘World of our Own’ and ‘You Raise Me Up’, alongside 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 stadium shows will be recorded yet, as soon as we know we’ll post details here.
Westlife – Live from Croke Park DVD
A DVD 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 or “fly on the wall” documentary style clips. A live CD is included with the DVD release.
The Live From Croke Park DVD is available to buy now:
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

Are there any Westlife tour dates outside the UK & Ireland?
No other international shows have been confirmed yet for 2022, but 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 at some point…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
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.
