- Cardiff Castle: Irish singer Lyra and British singer/songwriter Lucien Moon are special guests
- Henley festival: Westlife are headlining the ‘Floating Stage’ but no other support acts have been announced yet
What can we expect from shows on Westlife’s 2023 tour?
Expect an impressive show, with a few costume changes, plus pyrotechnics, confetti cannons (at stadium gigs at least), and some Beyonce-inspired dance moves!
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, and the Wild Dreams Tour does not disappoint.
Westlife promise a ‘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 2023?
The tour promises “All the hits” and includes some of Westlife’s greatest hits from through the years. The setlist at Westlife’s Hop Farm show on 1 July 2022 was as follows – this may not represent the setlist for all dates of the tour but gives an idea of the range of songs the guys will be performing:
- Uptown Girl
- When You’re Looking Like That
- Fool Again
- If I Let You Go
- My Love
- Swear it Again
- ABBA Medley (Mamma Mia, Gimme Gimme Gimme, Super Trouper, Money Money Money, Take a Chance on Me, I Have a Dream, Dancing Queen, Thank You for the Music, Waterloo)
- What About Now
- What Makes a Man
- World of Our Own
- Flying Without Wings
- Hello My Love
- You Raise me Up
Possible additions to the setlist for later dates are Unbreakable, Queen of My Heart, and I’m Already There. There is a rumour that the 2023 tour dates may have a slightly different set list, we’ll update here as and when we know!
What time will Westlife come on stage?
Timings are likely to vary for different venues, but for previous Dublin Aviva Stadium gigs timings were as follows:
6pm Doors open
6.30pm First support act
7.30pm Second support act
8.30pm Westlife on stage
Times may differ for shows at other locations – for example Westlife are expected to be on stage at the Henley Festival at 8.45pm. Please check with the venue for timings if you are going to a show!
Will there be a recording or a DVD available of the shows?
We reckon that it’s pretty likely that the Wembley Stadium show will be made available for download or purchase at a later date, but it hasn’t been confirmed yet – as soon as we know we’ll post details here.
Westlife’s 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.
Twenty Tour DVD – £14.48 (Amazon UK)
The Twenty Tour DVD is also available from hive.co.uk
What about dates in other countries?
No additional dates have been announced yet, however we know that the guys consider the Wild Dreams Tour as a ‘world tour’. Shane previously said that the Dublin show on 8 July 2022 was “going to be the start of our world tour” (Source: @Kev_OMahony).
Nicky said in an interview in July 2022 that the tour would comprise 70 dates, which means there could be up to 20 more dates still to be announced. So are there more dates still to come? We hope so!
We do know that Machaca festival is described as the band’s only show in México (Source: @MachacaFestival). Kian previously said that the guys will be playing at 10 stadiums in China in 2023 (Source: Sunday World), so there could be some dates still to come in China or elsewhere.
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
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 return to Korea soon:
“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 a world tour, but Westlife haven’t confirmed any more international tour dates yet. As soon as we know any further, we’ll add details to this page!
