Westlife will perform a “once-in-a-lifetime” concert at Wembley Stadium in 2020.
The Irish boyband revealed the news in a post on their social media accounts earlier this morning, billing the gig as their “biggest ever in the UK”.
The announcement comes off the back of the band’s hugely successful Twenty tour which saw them play sold out shows in 13 different countries.

The London concert takes place next Summer on Saturday, August 22, 2020 with no further dates currently planned for the Flying Without Wings performers.
Singer-songwriter James Morrison and girl group All Saints will serve as backup for the Irish foursome.
A new album featuring Ed Sheeran and James Bay
The Wembley announcement has created a great deal of buzz ahead of the release of the bands’s first studio album since 2010 effort Gravity.
Recorded in Los Angeles, London and Dublin the album features collaborations with Ed Sheeran, James Bay and Steve Mac. The band described Spectrum as everything that we love in music, heartfelt emotional songs and also great uptempos that are designed for our stadium performances.”
