Following the success of his Love Always solo tour late last year, Shane Filan is back with the second leg – and performing in Sheffield next week.

The singer-songwriter, who enjoyed huge success as part of Irish boyband Westlife, said: “I stood on the stage on the original leg of the Love Always tour and promised I would return.

“The whole tour went so well I thought I would love to take it back out.”

He is on the road following the release of top-five album Love Always last summer.

Shane says: “It was such fun and the fans have taken Love Always to their hearts. I want to get out and perform it for them, although I may be adding a few surprises into the mix to make this leg a little different.”

“Love Always is a collection of some of my favourite classic love songs. It’s the album I’ve wanted to make for a long time. For me, being able to perform this on stage is humbling.

“It reminds me of just how phenomenal it is to be a musician and how lucky I am to have such great fans.”

Shane Filan plays Sheffield City Hall on Wednesday, May 2. For tickets. see sheffieldcityhall.co.uk
