What can we expect from the Westlife stadium shows?

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
