What can we expect from shows on Westlife’s 2022 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 2022?
The tour promises “All the hits” and will include some of Westlife’s greatest hits from through the years. The setlist at Westlife’s Hop Farm show on 1 July 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

- 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.

Times may differ for shows at other locations – please check with the venue for timings if you are going to a show!
Westlife in Cinemas, August 2022
Cant make it to a show, or just want to see Westlife on the big screen? Westlife will be broadcasting their show from Wembley Stadium on Saturday 6 August 2022, live to cinemas across the UK and Ireland. This is the first time the guys have livestreamed a gig to cinemas, it’ll be an unmissable experience!
As well as being broadcast live on the Saturday, there will be “encore screenings” on Sunday 7 August 2022.
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 – 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.

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
