Westlife reportedly planning a massive world tour for 2020

Westlife are reportedly planning a massive world tour in 2020 - and we are truly excited.

Following the success of their Twenty Tour, the band - Mark Feehily, Shane Filan, Kian Egan and Nicky Byrne - are said to be in talks for some Christmas TV programming.


According to The Mirror, they are also in talks to team up with Ed Sheeran again for some new music.

However, all the big plans won't be happening until after Mark and his fiancé, Cailean O'Neill, welcome their firs child together.

An insider close to the band told the publication:


"Westlife’s comeback tour has been a remarkable success and interest in their new music has been better than the band ever imagined, so plans are well underway for what comes after the album release in November.

"The boys are in big demand. Mark is going to take a short break when his new baby arrives but then it’s all systems go.

"TV execs want the boys for the Christmas schedules and there is already talk of a big world tour in 2020, plans are being drawn up.

"There will also be even more new music with Ed Sheeran. Westlife are popular again. The Twenty Tour sold 700,000 tickets. There is a lot more to come from them, they’re in it for the longterm now."


Mark announced back in May that he and Cailean were going to be welcoming their first child later this year.

"This is the proudest moment of our lives and we are beyond excited to say it out loud," he captioned the Instagram post.
