Westlife To Play Their Only Show In The North

Westlife are heading to Scarborough Open Air Theatre next summer for an exclusive North of England show.

The Irish pop music icons – the top-selling album band of the 21st century – had been due to headline the Yorkshire coast venue this summer.

Now Shane, Mark, Kian and Nicky are delighted to announce they will play Scarborough Open Air Theatre on Tuesday August 17, 2021.

This unmissable date – which comes four days before the band’s massive headline show at Wembley Stadium – will be Westlife’s only outdoor performance in the North of England next summer.

The band said:
“Some exciting news! We are delighted to announce that Scarborough Open Air Theatre have invited us to join next year’s line-up on Tuesday August 17.

“Given the current circumstances, we really are hopeful to announce more shows in the new year and look forward to being back with you all as soon as we can. In the meantime, tickets for this one-off show will go on sale on Friday October 30.”

Westlife will perform their hits, taken from a catalogue including Swear It Again, Flying Without Wings, Unbreakable, When You’re Looking Like That and World of our Own as well as tracks from their chart-topping 2019 album Spectrum – including the smash-hit Hello My Love.

I have seen the band live and they do put on a great show - and contrary to what you might think the audience is not solely female.

Tickets go on sale via at 9am Friday October 30.
