Westlife fans were left heartbroken when a number of the band’s planned dates were axed throughout the coronavirus pandemic. 

 So devotees of the group were delighted to hear the group are on the road on The Wild Dreams Tour, which will take them across the UK’s biggest arenas. 

Speaking exclusively to MailOnline last year, Kian said: ‘After the terrible 18 months we’ve all had, we’re giving this tour our all. I think it’ll be the best Westlife tour yet with some amazing surprises thrown in.’

Following endless delays in the live music industry throughout the pandemic, Westlife were delighted to announce they are touring once again.

Kian said: ‘Me and the lads missed each other throughout the lockdown and didn’t see each other for well over a year so it is going to be fantastic to get back on the road together again next year!…

‘We’ll be making up for lost time and will be giving our fans the best shows of our lives. After the terrible 18 months we’ve all had, we’re giving this tour our all. I think it’ll be the best Westlife tour yet with some amazing surprises thrown in…

‘We’ll be playing all of our greatest hits and some of our new songs which have gone down so well. We’re also excited to be releasing our new album next month. Our last album, in 2019, went straight to number one and that’s where we want to be again.’
