‘FACE TO FACE 06’ - THE TOUR
After what can only be described as an incredible few weeks, Westlife today announce their eagerly anticipated ‘Face to Face 06’ tour and will be playing the Metro Radio Arena on Tuesday 2nd May 2006, and now an extra date, Wednesday 3rd May.
Fresh from the massive double success of their album ‘Face to Face’ which knocked Robbie off the top spot today and of course the current UK no 1 single – ‘You Raise Me Up’ taken from their album, Westlife are well and truly back and ready to delight fans across the UK and Ireland with major arena performances.
Westlife will perform some of their classic favourites alongside songs from their new 'Face to Face' album which they believe is their strongest and best album to date.
Says Kian, “It has been 2 years since we released ‘Turnaround’ – we had the rat-pack release ‘Allow Us To Be Frank’ in between, but effectively we have spent these 2 years hunting out 12 of the best songs we could find. We are all thrilled with the end result – each of the songs is as strong as the next and we can’t wait to get out there and perform them live to our fans.’
Westlife have now performed to over four million fans over five years to become the biggest selling arena tour act ever. After seven years together, their seventh album finds them at the top of their game, and it’s a big game they play in, with five multi-platinum albums in the UK alone. Add to that the Brit Awards, MTV Awards, now 14 UK number one’s; Westlife are amazingly one of the biggest brands on the planet.
Tickets costing £28.50 (tickets may be subject to service charge) are on sale now.
