Westlife front man Shane Filan has announced the second leg of his major UK tour for October - including a date in Motherwell.

In the wake of the huge success of both his Right Here Tour earlier this year and the Right Here album, the Irish pop sensation will be giving fans the opportunity to see him perform Westlife favourites as well as his own recent tracks.

The tour is being promoted and produced by LHG Live by arrangement with Solo and will see Shane perform in a variety of entertainment venues and theatres all over the UK, including Motherwell Concert Hall on Thursday, October 13.

Shane said: “The Right Here Tour earlier in the year was fantastic and I was really proud of how this transcended over so many different venues and places that I hadn’t performed in before.

“It was incredible to see the reaction from fans, to have them there with me enjoying the songs and joining in.

“The tour was such a great experience and we have had so many requests for more dates that we thought we might as well give the fans what they want, and go back out on the road in October.

“I am really excited about this new phase in the tour and looking forward to seeing everyone at the Motherwell Concert Hall– it’s going to be a great night!”

Westlife had 14 chart topping singles and 44 million sales.

Their career, Shane says, “fulfilled all of our dreams 1,000 times over.”

The release of his Right Here album has cemented Shane’s position as one of the UK’s most popular male solo artists, and the new tour dates promise to show just why he is so well loved in his own right.

Tickets for the tour went on sale from Shane’s website or from Ticketmaster. General admission tickets are £32.50, while premier tickets are £50.

A limited number of meet and greet upgrades are also available via Ticketmaster.
