Westlife – the UK’s top album selling group of the 21st Century – will tour the UK in 2020 with their 15-date 'Stadiums in the Summer Tour'.

The summer tour comes to Gloucester’s Kingsholm Stadium on Sunday 12 July, and will see the global pop kings perform all of their greatest hits including  ‘Swear It Again’, ‘Flying Without Wings’ and ‘You Raise Me Up’ as well as sensational up-tempo new songs from their forthcoming new album ‘Spectrum’.

“The reaction to our comeback tour was beyond anything any of us ever imagined," say the band "so we’re going to do it all over again but this time in some of the largest outdoor venues in the UK.

"The shows are going to be incredible and will include all our greatest hits. We can’t wait to perform at Kingsholm Stadium in Gloucester."

The show will include an impressive stage and production, unlike anything seen at Kingsholm Stadium before. Fans will have the opportunity to experience their favourite band up close with access to the Golden Circle.

The tour, which covers some of the biggest outdoor venues in the UK, will conclude with Westlife’s first-ever Wembley Stadium show on Saturday 22 August.

The Stadiums in the Summer announcement follows the phenomenal success of Westlife’s remarkable comeback and comes as the band prepares to release their brand new album ‘Spectrum’ on 15 November.  The Kingsholm Stadium date is presented by Music Plus Sport and follows the stunning success of this summer’s ‘Twenty Tour’ – Westlife’s fastest selling tour of all time.

Speaking about the Stadiums in the Summer Tour coming to Kingsholm Stadium, Lance Bradley, Chief Executive Officer of Gloucester Rugby said:  “We are delighted to be welcoming Westlife to the home of Gloucester Rugby, Kingsholm Stadium, in July  2020.

"We have been hosting concerts with great success, at Kingsholm for several years and we are looking forward to adding Westlife to the list of distinguished acts who have performed here.”
