WESTLIFE FRONTMAN SHANE FILAN ANNOUNCES RIGHT HERE TOUR
Shane Filan said,“The Right Here Tour’ earlier in the year was fantastic and I was really proud of how this transcended over so many different venues and places that I hadn’t performed in before. It was incredible to see the reaction from fans, to have them there with me enjoying the songs and joining in! The tour was such as great experience and we have had so many requests for more dates that we thought we might as well give the fans what they want, and go back out on the road in October. I am really excited about this new phase in the tour and looking forward to seeing everyone at the Bradford Alhambra Theatre – it’s going to be a great night!”
The release of the Right Here album has cemented Shane’s position as one of the UK’s most popular male solo artists, following his amazing success as frontman with Westlife - one of the world’s most successful bands of the last few decades - and the new tour dates promise to show just why Shane is so well loved in his own right.
The album Right Here was mainly recorded in London and Denmark, with Shane working on the music with Cutfather (The Saturdays, JLS), Jez Ashurst (Will Young, Gabrielle Aplin), Jon Maguire (Union J) and Tre Jean-Marie (MNEK, Jason Derulo). It was released on 25 September 2015 and reached Number 1 on the Irish Album Charts and the UK Top 20 in its first week.
Westlife had fourteen chart topping singles and forty-four million sales. Their career, Shane says, “fulfilled all of our dreams 1,000 times over.” It’s been a remarkable journey for a singer songwriter who grew up inspired by an admiration of Backstreet Boys and Michael Jackson.
‘Right Here Tour’ is being promoted and produced by LHG Live by arrangement with Solo.
