The Voice finalist, Gillingham’s Jamie Johnson, will be the support act.

Together, Shane, Mark, Kian and Nicky sold 50 million records worldwide as Westlife and had 14 number one singles.

Shane’s solo career launched last summer with his debut single Everything To Me, shortly followed by the release of his first album You and Me.

The Castle Concerts crowd can look forward to hearing his new tracks as well as some Westlife favourites.

Shane and Jamie are joined in the 2014 Castle Concerts line-up by UB40 on Friday, July 18, and the Castle Proms on Saturday July 19.

The final act will be announced next week.

Tickets for Shane Filan go on general sale at 10am on Wednesday.

UB40 tickets are now sold out, but there is still time to book tickets for the Proms.
