Westlife star Markus Feehily will be a special guest on Wet Wet Wet’s upcoming tour.
The singer, formerly known as Mark, rose to fame as one fifth of the Irish boyband and has since launched a solo career.
Wet Wet Wet front man Marti Pellow said of his band’s special guest: “Markus has a great voice and as he’ll be performing a selection of Westlife and solo material, we’re in for a real treat.”
Feehily added: “I remember listening to Marti Pellow’s voice and being really inspired. It’s a pleasure to go on tour with Wet Wet Wet and I can’t wait to sing in the arenas again.”
The 17-date Big Picture tour next February and March coincides with the 20th anniversary of the band’s number one album Picture This which included the hit Love Is All Around.
Meanwhile, Westlife bowed out of the pop world with a concert in Dublin’s Croke Park in the summer of 2012 after a career in which they amassed 14 UK number one singles.
The band racked up 44 million record sales, sung with diva Mariah Carey and even performed for the Pope.
Wet Wet Wet will play venues across the UK and Ireland including London, Manchester, Glasgow, Dublin and Belfast.
