In the wake of releasing his hit album Right Here in October 2015, Shane Filan has announced a major indoor UK Tour taking in some of the UK’s best loved venues - coming to Birmingham Symphony Hall on Saturday 26 March 2016.
bq. I am thrilled to be 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. I am very much looking forward to coming to Birmingham. It’s exciting to be performing across the UK & Ireland early next year!
The release of ‘Right Here’ has cemented Shanes position as one of the UK’s most popular male solo artists, following his amazing success with Westlife, one of the world’s most successful bands of the last few decades and this tour promises to show just why Shane isso well loved in his own right. 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). It was released in October 2015 and reached #1 on the Irish Album Charts and the UK Top 20 in its first week.
Westlife had fourteen chart topping singles and forty-four million sales. Their career, Shane says, “fulfilled all of our dreams 1000 times over.” It’s been a remarkable journey for a singer songwriter who grew up inspired by an admiration of Backstreet Boys and Michael Jackson.
