The UK’s biggest-selling album group of the 21st century, Westlife will perform at the stadium for the first time in front of a sold out audience.

The band will perform the songs from their Wild Dreams tour, including Uptown Girl, Flying Without Wings, You Raise Me Up, and If I Let You Go.

Shane, Nicky, Mark and Kian invite fans to get together in their local cinema and share the live experience, up close and personal.

Ahead of the event, Westlife said: “Without a doubt, Wembley stadium will be a career high and a real ‘pinch yourself’ moment in our lives.

After a two year wait, August 6 will be the biggest show we have ever undertaken in the UK and all under the arch of one of the world’s most iconic venues.

"To now announce that the show will be screened live in cinemas across the UK, Ireland and Europe, allowing our fans who won’t be there on the night to enjoy it in real time too, is something really special for us.

"We will be giving Wembley everything we’ve got on the night with all of our Greatest Hits included!

Westlife – Live From Wembley Stadium will be broadcast direct via satellite into over 500 cinemas in the UK.

Since the band's formation more than 20 years ago, Westlife have sold over 55 million records worldwide and are the only band to have their first seven singles enter the UK chart at number one.

They also have the most singles of any artist to debut at number one in the UK.

Overall, the band have had 14 number one singles, behind only Elvis Presley and The Beatles. They have had 33 number one albums worldwide and as a live act have sold five million concert tickets worldwide.

Westlife – Live From Wembley Stadium will be broadcast at 8.30pm on Saturday, August 6 2022. There will be encore screenings at 3pm in cinemas on Sunday, August 7.
