Hot off the back of announcing his new album Love Always, Shane Filan has also announced a major tour for later this year, including a return to Belfast’s Waterfront Hall on October 22.

“Love Always’ is a collection of some of my favourite classic love songs,” explained the former Westlife singer. “It’s an album I’ve wanted to make for a long time. For me there’s nothing quite like singing an amazing ballad and this album is full of them.

“Some of the ideas for it came directly from my fans because they would always say to me, we would love to hear you sing this song. So I decided to make a list of all my favourite love songs and then put them together on one album. The hard part was narrowing it down to those that have ended up on the album.

“There’s also a few original tracks on there, some that I’ve written myself. It’s always amazing to get into the studio and see what we can come up with.

“I can’t wait for my fans to hear the album. It’s been a long time coming.“

Tickets are on sale now from usual outlets.
