IN the wake of releasing his hit album Right Here, former Westlife star Shane Filan has announced he will be going on tour in 2016 including a Belfast date at the Ulster Hall.
The singer who shot to fame in Westlife is no stranger to the Belfast audience having played the city a record number of times during his career.
Speaking of the concert on March 15 which goes on sale Wednesday November 18 Shane said: “I am so looking forward to getting out on the road in March 2016.
“This is going to be quite a tour. I am really proud of Right Here and now can’t wait to perform the new songs live, alongside some old favourites.
“It’s exciting to be performing again next year!”
The release of Right Here has cemented Shane’s popularity as a solo artist following his amazing success with Westlife, one of the world’s most successful bands of the last few decades.
Shane added: “For me, there is nothing quite like the moment I see the audience singing along to the songs I wrote, and I hope the Right Here Tour will be just as memorable, just as special. I cannot wait to see all the fans again.”
Right Here was mainly recorded in London and Denmark, with Shane working on the music with Cutfather (The Saturdays, JLS), Jez Ashurst (Will Young, Gabrielle Aplin), Jon Maguire (Union J) and Tre Jean-Marie (MNEK, Jason Derulo).
On it’s release in October 2015, it went straight to No.1 in the Irish Album Charts.
