Former singer of the super group and worldwide phenomenon Westlife, Shane Filan, is coming to Manila this October!
MYXph.com got the chance to chat with the Irish singer to spill the details for his upcoming concert in the country.
This will be his first ever major show in Manila after the Irish group’s fond farewell tour back in 2011 and is part of his ongoing You & Me World Tour to promote his debut album.
"I love coming to the Philippines. I feel the amazing support there. So I can't wait to see everybody," he exclaimed."
Now a solo act, he's now set to take on the world with his music and we're lucky that our country is one of his first stops.. With this debut album entitled "You & Me", Shane emerges as a pop writer to be reckoned with. This album is way more than the ballads that Westlife was known for as it has everything from pop, soul, country and even a mix traditional Irish music. It sees Filan taking an acoustic-pop direction and it's dominated by up-tempo and mid-tempo songs. So this song is not definitely not to be missed.
Good new for all the Westlife fans. Shane reveals that, "It's going to be a great show! I'll do some songs from my album "You & Me", I'll do a lot of Westlife songs as well. Probably 50% of my show is gonna be Weslife songs. "
So get ready to reacquaint yourselves with the Westlife fever. With dozens of hits – including “Mandy,” “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” and “Uptown Girl,” the show will truly take you to the golden age of boybands.
He also mentioned that he will be releasing his new autobiography My Side of Life really soon. Which imncludes is personal account of the issues he went through as an artist - from the time filed for bankruptcy, to his journey to becoming a solo artist. So be sure to watch out for that as well!
