Westlife star Shane Filan to bring “Love Always” tour to Telford
Hot off the back of announcing his new album Love Always, Shane Filan has announced a major indoor UK tour – including a date at Oakengates Theatre @ The Place on Wednesday October 4.
Shane has cemented his position as one of the UK’s most popular male solo artists following phenomenal success with Westlife – one of the world’s most successful bands of the last few decades.
Shane followed up that success with his own Right Here tour in 2016, which saw fans pleading for another run on the road.
The singer was keen to oblige and the idea for Love Always was soon born, with this latest tour including all his popular hits and tracks from the new album.
Shane says: “Love Always is a collection of some of my favourite classic love songs and it’s an album I’ve wanted to make for a long times.
“For me, there’s nothing quite like singing an amazing ballad and this album is full of them. Some of the songs suggestions came directly from my fans because they would always say to me "we would love to hear you sing this song”.
“So I decided to make a list of all my favourite love songs and then put them together on one album. The hard part was narrowing it down to those on the album.”
Tickets for the Shane Filan “Love Always” concert at Oakengates Theatre @ The Place go on sale from 9am on Friday 12 May. They can be booked via www.theplacetelford.com by calling the box office on 01952 382382 or in person at the box office and Southwater One. Shane’s 23 date tour runs through September and October.
