After fourteen UK No.1 singles and more than 36 million records sold worldwide, the biggest selling pop act of the last 10 years, WESTLIFE, triumphantly announce they will perform in concert in New Zealand for the very first time.

The all-boy band, who has dominated the charts since 1999 when they released Flying Without Wings, will appear in Christchurch, Wellington, Auckland and New Plymouth in May.

Westlife is a cultural phenomenon and after a decade of hits, they are still at the top of their game and continue to surprise and astound in equal measure. No modern band can compare to Westlife’s extraordinary success. In their 10 years aboard the pop express they have sold over 36 million records globally and been awarded 28 platinum discs. In the UK alone they have scored eight multi-platinum albums and a record breaking 14 number one hits (behind only Elvis and The Beatles). The band has also picked up innumerable awards and appeared on hundreds of magazine covers around the world. They are the only recording artists to win the prestigious ‘Record Of The Year’ a staggering four times (other top awards include two BRITS and an MTV Europe Award).

As well as all their hits including Seasons in the Sun and Swear It again, they will feature songs from their latest album "Back Home" when they perform in four fabulous New Zealand venues.

As a special gift to their New Zealand fans in celebration of their debut tour, Westlife will be releasing a NZ only edition of their "best of" album featuring all their greatest hits.

"We are ecstatic to have such an amazing band coming here," says the promoter. "We advise people to get in quick as this is THE hot ticket for 2008."
