Reported by - Thursday, June 15 2006
Renowned for their big ballads, moving melodies and heartfelt harmonies, Westlife are bringing their fine way with a tune to life for their multitude of Australian fans.
After winning over more Australian hearts during a promotional tour earlier this year, which sent their seventh album Face To Face straight to number 1, Michael Coppel and Video Hits are very pleased to announce the return of Westlife for a national arena tour this September!
Arguably the most successful pop group to come out of Ireland, Westlife have achieved worldwide album sales in excess of 35 million, and won a multitude of accolades, including two Brit Awards.
Since the release of their 1999 debut single Swear It Again, Westlife have reached the top of the UK singles chart an incredible 13 times, and their five sell out UK Arena tours have seen them performing to a combined audience of over 4 million, making them the biggest selling arena act in the UK.
In reaching number 1 Westlife's current album Face To Face knocked Robbie Williams out of the #1 spot in the UK and also reached the top of the Australian ARIA charts, where it has been a top 10 staple and is approaching double platinum sales.
Following the success of their first single You Raise Me Up, SonyBMG will release Westlife’s second single, Amazing, on July 15.
Joining the 4 lovely Irish lads of Westlife on tour are 4 of Australia's finest femme vocalists in the guise of YOUNG DIVAS.
This all star line up of Kate DeAraugo, Paulini, Emily Williams and Ricki Lee have ruled the airwaves with the # 2 charting hit single of their pop/disco reworking of Donna Summer's classic "This Time I Know It's For Real".
A further single is due for release in July, with their debut album to follow.
