Ireland’s most successful pop group ‘Westlife’ will perform in Hanoi on October 1 this year.
The group is on their Asian tour to promote their 11th album “Gravity”, released last November. Vietnam is on the group’s tour itinerary as are Indonesia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore and the Philippines.
The ‘Westlife’ group was formed in 1988 with singers Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan, Mark Feehily, Shane Filan and Brian McFadden.
The band had their first seven singles go straight to Number 1 and have sold over 44 million records worldwide which includes their studio, single and video albums. Despite the group's worldwide success, they've only had one U.S. hit on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, "Swear It Again", which made it to No.20 in 2000.
Brian McFadden, a member of the group, performed in Viet Nam as part of the Hennessy Artistry 2009 programme, along with Australian singer Lenka, English singer Paul Freeman and American band, Boys like Girls.
