Westlife Announces Intimate 3Arena ‘Home For Christmas’ Shows

The ‘Home For Christmas’ shows will be Westlife’s first indoor dates in Dublin for over 11 years.

Following the success of their sold-out Irish and UK stadium tour ‘Wild Dreams’, Westlife have announced two intimate shows at the 3Arena on 20 and 21 December 2022.

The quartet’s highly anticipated ‘Home For Christmas’ shows will mark their first indoor dates in Dublin in over 11 years.

Since their return to music in 2018; Shane Filan, Nicky Byrne, Mark Feehily and Kian Egan have achieved phenomenal success – including two albums reaching No. 1 and No. 2 in the UK charts, some of their most successful radio records to date and their tours top sellers of all time.

Last summer, the band played to sold-out houses in the UK, Ireland and Europe, including Wembley Stadium, as well as two nights at Aviva Stadium and Páirc Uí Chaoimh. The rest of the tour will extend to Asia later this year, followed by a full series of UK arena dates.

Westlife have sold over 55 million records worldwide and are the only band to have seen their first seven singles enter the UK chart at No.1.

They also have the most singles of any artist to debut at No. 1 in the UK. Overall, the group had an incredible 14 No. 1 singles, behind only Elvis Presley and the Beatles. They’ve had 33 No. 1 albums worldwide and as a live act have sold 5 million concert tickets worldwide and counting.

Westlife’s ‘Twenty Tour’ sold a record 600,000 tickets in 27 cities and 13 countries, including two sold-out shows in Croke Park, Dublin (150,000 tickets) and 160,000 tickets for their Dublin and Cork ‘Wild’ tour Dreams».

Their Sold-out show at Wembley Stadium featured numbers such as the 1999 major hit “Flying Without Wings”, “You Raise Me Up”, “When You’re Looking Like That”, “Starlight”, “Uptown Girl”, “What About Now” and ” World of Our Own ”.

It was the first time in the chart-topping band’s history that they played at the famed venue, having formed in 1998. Mark Feehily, Shane Filan, Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan and Brian McFadden rose to fame with Westlife in the late 90s, but disbanded in 2018 after 14 successful years.

They reunited in 2018 without McFadden – who left the band in 2004 and has since teamed up with Boyzone’s Keith Duffy.

Tickets for Westlife’s 3Arena are from €72.10 including booking fee, going on sale Friday 16 September at 9am via Ticketmaster.ie
