Big Concerts has officially announced that Westlife will be embarking on their Wild Dreams Tour and will be stopping by the Grand Arena, GrandWest in Cape Town on the 1st of November and the SunBet Arena, Time Square in Pretoria on the 3rd of November.
Their Wild Dreams Tour kicked off in the summer of 2022 and saw them performing across the UK, including a sold-out headline show at London’s iconic Wembley Stadium. Fans were treated to a spectacular show where Westlife performed their greatest hits, including “Swear It Again,” “Flying Without Wings,” “World Of Our Own,” “My Love,” “If I Let You Go,” “Uptown Girl,” and “Hello My Love,” along with fresh pop anthems from their new album.
For those unfamiliar with Westlife, they are a wildly successful Irish boyband that was formed in 1998. The band comprises Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan, Shane Filan, and Mark Feehily and has produced chart-topping hits that have left fans in awe for over two decades. Their debut international self-titled studio album, “Westlife,” released in 1999, was a massive success and put them on the path to global stardom.
Over the years, Westlife has accumulated an impressive track record. They have had an astounding 33 No.1 albums worldwide and have received several prestigious accolades, including one World Music Award, two Brit Awards, four MTV Awards, and four Record of the Year Awards. The band has sold over 55 million records worldwide and is the only band to have their first seven singles enter the UK chart at No.1. They also hold the record for the most singles of any artist to debut at No.1 in the UK, with a remarkable 14 No.1 singles, behind only Elvis Presley and The Beatles. As a live act, they have sold five million concert tickets worldwide and counting, making them one of the most successful boybands of all time.
