VOV.VN - Irish pop group Westlife have decided to add an additional concert to their November 2023 performance schedule in Ho Chi Minh City as part of their ongoing world tour “The Wild Dreams Tour”.
“Vietnam! Due to high demand we are adding an extra date on the 21st of November,” Westlife wrote on their Facebook fan page
The single performance is originally scheduled to take place on November 22 at Thong Nhat Stadium, which is capable of accommodating about 15,000 spectators. Tickets quickly sold out, and the concert’s organisers decided to put on an additional concert on November 21.
According to the group's official fan page, ticket prices for all seats will be the same in both shows.
This marks the second time that Westlife have come to Vietnam for a live concert. In 2011, the Irish pop group enthralled crowds of thousands during their Gravity global tour which stopped at My Dinh Stadium in Hanoi.
The group’s main vocalist Shane Filan came to Ho Chi Minh City in 2014 to perform as part of the You & Me tour. In 2017, he once again returned to Ho Chi Minh City for the Love Always music night.
The five-member band were formed in 1998 with Shane Filan, Kian Egan, Nicky Bryne, Mark Feehily, and Bryan McFadden.
They have sold over 55 million records and are holders of four Guinness World Records. Westlife have also received numerous accolades, including one World Music Award, two Brit Awards, four MTV Awards, and four Record of the Year Awards.
Several of their hit songs such as Flying Without Wings, Seasons in The Sun, My Love, and I Lay My Love On You have won the hearts of many fans from across the world, including those in Vietnam.
