The Stadiums in the Summer announcement follows the phenomenal success of Westlife’s remarkable comeback and comes as the band prepares to release their brand new album ‘Spectrum’ on 15 November.

The Durham date is presented by live music promoters Cuffe and Taylor and follows the stunning success of this summer’s ‘Twenty Tour’ – Westlife’s fastest selling tour of all time.

“The reaction to our comeback tour was beyond anything any of us ever imagined so we’re going to do it all over again but this time in some of the largest outdoor venues in the UK. The shows are going to be incredible and will include all our greatest hits.

We can’t wait to perform in Durham,” say the band.

Speaking about the Stadiums in the Summer Tour coming to Durham, Emirates Riverside Chief Operating Officer Richard Dowson said: “We are thrilled Westlife are including Emirates Riverside in their summer stadium tour.
