MANILA, Philippines – Westlife fans will be flying without wings soon enough – the boy band will be returning to Manila to celebrate their 20th anniversary (yes, it’s been that long – feel old yet?).
They will be playing at the Araneta Coliseum on July 30 as part of the Asia run of The Twenty Tour – their much-awaited reunion tour.
Beloved icons of the late 90s and early aughts, the Irish band is known for its hits such as “Swear it Again,” “If I Let You Go,” and “World of Our Own,” and covers of songs like “Uptown Girl” and “Mandy.”
They disbanded in late 2011, but announced their reunion in October 2018. In January, they released “Hello My Love,” their first single in 8 years. They are planning to release a new album in late 2019.
Westlife earlier teased their Manila return, saying “We are 100% gonna come back to Manila ASAP. This year definitely.” Well now we know the band is true to its word.
