Celebrating Westlife’s 20th anniversary, The Twenty Tour will kick off in Belfast on 22nd, May with the run of live shows ending in Dublin on 6th July. The shows will see the global pop kings perform brand new songs alongside their greatest hits, and all fourteen of their UK number one hits including Swear It Again, Flying Without Wings, You Raise Me Up and Unbreakable.
