Earlier this week, Westlife announced that they were going to be playing their biggest gig in Cork ever next year – in Páirc Uí Chaoimh.
It was an exciting time for all involved, as the lads expressed their delight at playing such a large venue in the rebel county, and all of their fans desperately prayed for an additional payday before they had to buy tickets.
The gig will take place on Friday, August 28 2020, so yeah, still a fair bit of time to wait, but sure look, that only gives everybody enough time to get themselves sufficiently hyped, right?
And now, it appears as if that hype is only going to get more intense – because the lads have confirmed that Emeli Sandé will join them as a special guest on the night.
Delighted? Of course you are.
The UK singer will be hitting the stage ahead of Nicky, Mark, Shane, and Mark next summer, belting out some of her most iconic hits including ‘Next To Me,’ ‘Clown,’ and ‘Hurts.’
Bangers, the lot of ’em.
Last Friday, Westlife announced they’re also going to be headlining Wembley Stadium, London on August 22 2020, making them the second Irish act to ever do so.
Fair play, like.
It’s the Cork gig, however, that’s got fans in Ireland the most excited. And understandably so.
“Headlining Páirc Uí Chaoimh for the first time ever is a dream come true for all of us,” said the band.
“We’re incredibly excited for a show which will be different and more spectacular than anything we’ve ever done before.”
Tickets for Westlife’s Cork gig go on sale this Friday, September 20 at 9am from Ticketmaster and other ticket outlets.
Prices start at €59.50 including booking fee.
