Westlife announce band is heading to Hull as part of new stadium tour

Irish boyband Westlife will be heading to Hull as part of their biggest UK outdoor tour to date.

The quartet of Shane, Mark, Kian and Nicky, who reunited last year without Brian McFadden, are set to tour the UK in 2020 for 15 different dates as part of their Stadiums in the Summer tour.

The band will perform at Hull College Craven Park Stadium on Friday July 10 with tickets being released on November 15.

Fans can expect to hear greatest hits including "Flying Without Wings" and "You Raise Me Up" as well as songs from their new album which is set to be released later this month.

Bosses at Hull Kingston Rovers say events like this are important for the city.
