Westlife Tour 2021 – Kian, Nicky, Mark and Shane have announced a ‘Stadiums in the summer’ tour of the UK and Ireland. Unfortunately due to coronavirus pandemic the 2020 Westlife UK and Ireland tour was cancelled, however the Wembley and Cork dates have been rescheduled for August 2021. They will be Westlife’s biggest shows to date!
Westlife 2021 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 have 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, however shows at Wembley, London, and Cork, Ireland have been rescheduled and will go ahead in August 2021.
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 2021 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.

Will Westlife’s other UK tour dates be rescheduled?
We hope so! But we don’t know for sure if any other UK dates will be announced for 2021. At the moment the only 2020 tour dates that have been rescheduled are the dates for the two biggest shows at Wembley and Cork, the remainder of the UK tour dates were cancelled, with no rescheduled shows announced (yet…). As soon as we have details of any other tour dates we’ll add them above.
Who are the support acts?
Emile Sandé will be supporting 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 2021?
The setlist for the 2021 Westlife concerts hasn’t been revealed yet. It’s been suggested that the shows will include their greatest hits from through the years including ‘Swear It Again’, ‘Flying Without Wings’, ‘World of our Own’ and ‘You Raise Me Up’, alongside material from the new album, Spectrum.
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, so it seems that the DVD will include some behind-the scenes or “fly on the wall” documentary style clips. There will also be a live CD 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:
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 2021 shows – please check with the venue for timings if you are going to a show!
Are there any Westlife tour dates outside the UK & Ireland?
Westlife will be appearing at the Domkirken Rocker in Viborg, Denmark, on 14 August 2021. More details on the Domkirken Rocker (in Danish) >
No other international shows have been confirmed yet for 2021, 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, but no details have been confirmed yet. Shane has 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. We’ll update the list above if and when more they are announced.
