Westlife have announce a huge stadium tour for summer 2020, but the line-up doesn’t include any dates in Dublin.

The foursome will visit 15 cities across the UK as part of their Stadiums in the Summer tour – kicking off on June 19 in Norwich.

But sadly, it looks like the lads are skipping out on performing in Dublin next year.

This means their only Irish concert dates for 2020 will be their two shows in Cork’s Pairc Ui Chaoimh on August 28 and 29.

After announcing the news on social media, fans were quick to question why they haven’t announced a Dublin date for next year.

One fan tweeted: “Give the people what they want . A Dublin date,” and another simply wrote: “Dublin lads?”

Back in September, Westlife’s Shane Filan said their gig at Pairc Ui Chaoimh next year will be Ireland’s only “bespoke concert” in 2020, but fans were hoping they’d add more gigs due to the demand.

Their manager Louis Walsh also said, “They are just going do Cork [this] year I think,” during a recent interview with RSVP.

“Two gigs there and then maybe something in Dublin the year after.”
