After the phenomenal No.1 success of his album,
Shayne Ward announces his debut arena tour
Pop superstar Shayne Ward will be touring some of the biggest venues in the UK and Ireland during January and February 2007 with the announcement of his spectacular 11-date arena tour. Shayne will be appearing at the Metro Radio Arena Newcastle on Monday 5th February 2007.
In just six months, Shayne Ward has gone from shop assistant in Manchester to one of the biggest selling recording artists in the UK and Ireland. Since being crowned the winner of the X-Factor he has achieved unprecedented success and to add to his achievements to date is the announcement of his debut arena tour, kicking off on 21st January 2007.
After winning the X-Factor, Shayne’s first single went straight to No.1 and entered record books for being the most downloaded track in day. A Brit Nomination for Best Single shortly followed along with the release of ‘No Promises’ and the huge No.1 album. The album ‘Shayne Ward’ outsold the sales of the Top 20 records combined and continues to go from strength to strength in the UK charts heading towards platinum status.
Shayne will perform a series of hits from his album including the singles ‘That’s My Goal’, ‘No Promises’ and ‘Over The Rainbow’ – his own special version that won over millions of viewers during the final of the X-Factor.
Having played similar venues on the X-Factor tour Shayne said “I am very excited about my tour, I can’t imagine what it will be like to sing for so many people on my own but I can’t wait to go out there and do it. This whole experience has been a dream come true and a nationwide tour is the icing on the cake”.
