We’re delighted to announce that Shane Filan will join Lionel Richie as a special guest when he plays Leigh Sports Village on Saturday June 16. 

For 14 years, Shane Filan was a prominent member of hugely successful boy band Westlife, an act that managed to amass no fewer than 14 UK number one hits, 11 top 5 albums and over 50 million records sold worldwide before their dissolution in 2012 that saw them perform in front of 80.000 fans. Having now cemented himself as one of the UK’s most popular male solo artists, Shane will be joining Lionel Richie on his ‘All The Hits’ tour.

These will be Lionel’s first UK shows since receiving glittering reviews for the ‘All The Hits’ tour which included three nights at London’s The O2. The dates followed a phenomenal Glastonbury performance which drew the biggest crowd of the weekend as over 200,000 people flocked to the Pyramid Stage. Lionel’s incredible success continued as his album ‘The Definitive Collection’ topped the charts and provided his first UK Number 1 in 23 years.

The Lionel Richie ‘All The Hits’ tour will come to Leigh Sports Village on Saturday 16 June. For full concert, ticket and hospitality information please go to www.leighsportsvillage.co.uk/lionel
