Former Westlife singer Shane Filan has announced he will visit Kent as part of the second leg of his Love Always tour.
The Irish singer, who played in Margate for the first leg, will play the Assembly Hall Theatre in Tunbridge Wells on Wednesday, May 9.
Shane said: "I stood on the stage on the original leg of the Love Always tour and promised I would return – and here I am!
"The whole tour went so well I thought I would love to take it back out. It was such fun and the fans have taken Love Always to their hearts. I want to get out and perform it for them, although I may be adding a few surprises into the mix to make this leg a little different – so watch out."
Love Always is a collection of some of his favourite classic love songs.
Shane said: "It's the album I've wanted to make for a long time. For me, being able to perform this on stage is humbling. It reminds me of just how phenomenal it is to be a musician and how lucky I am to have such great fans."
Following phenomenal success with Westlife, which included 14 chart topping singles and 44 million sales, Shane has cemented his position as one of the UK’s most popular male solo artists, performing two Right Here tours in 2016, and Love Always, which came about as a result of demand from fans.
Liz Doogan-Hobbs MBE, from LHG Live said: "Love Always was a brilliant tour to promote. It was lively, exciting and dynamic - visually it was the most eye-catching tour Shane has done. As ever we have to directly thank Shane’s fans who always support every date he plays. They really are the best."
