Tickets go on sale today for Westlife gig at Weston Homes Stadium in Peterborough
Tickets go on sale today (Friday, November 8) for Westlife, who are set to perform at the Weston Homes Stadium in Peterborough as part of the biggest UK outdoor tour.
Westlife – the UK’s top selling album group of the 21st century – will tour the UK in 2020 with their 15-date Stadiums in the Summer Tour.
The spectacular summer tour, which includes a date at Peterborough’s Weston Homes Stadium on Sunday June 21, will see the global pop kings perform all of their greatest hits including 'Swear It Again', ‘Flying Without Wings’ and ‘You Raise Me Up’ as well as sensational up-tempo new songs from their forthcoming new album ‘Spectrum’.
The tour, which covers some of the biggest outdoor venues in the UK, will conclude with Westlife’s first-ever Wembley Stadium show on Saturday 22 August.
The Stadiums in the Summer announcement follows the phenomenal success of Westlife’s remarkable comeback and comes as the band prepares to release their brand new album ‘Spectrum’ on November 15.
The Weston Homes date is presented by live music promoters Cuffe and Taylor and follows the stunning success of this summer’s ‘Twenty Tour’ - Westlife’s fastest selling tour of all time.
“The reaction to our comeback tour was beyond anything any of us ever imagined so we’re going to do it all over again but this time in some of the largest outdoor venues in the UK. The shows are going to be incredible and will include all our greatest hits. We can’t wait to perform in Peterborough,” say the band.
Speaking about the Stadiums in the Summer Tour coming to The Weston Homes Stadium, Commercial Manager Alex Harris said: “We are delighted to be bringing Westlife to the Weston Homes Stadium in 2020. They were one of the biggest boy bands in the world and have returned with new music so it is great that we are able to attract them to Peterborough.
“We feel as a football club that we have put the city on the map when it comes to attracting big stars with Sir Elton John, Sir Tom Jones, Craig David, Blue and Steps already making their debuts at our stadium. We hope the Peterborough public continue to support what we are doing and look forward to welcoming Westlife and their loyal fan base to the city.”
Westlife have sold more than 55 million records worldwide and are the only band to have their first seven singles enter the UK chart at No.1. They also have the most singles of any artist to debut at No.1 in the UK. Overall the band have had an incredible 14 No.1 singles, behind only Elvis Presley and The Beatles.
