Westlife have announced a brace of shows this summer as part of Forestry Commission Live Music where acts perform in spectacular woodland locations around the country.
During their 12 years at the top of pop’s hierarchy, Westlife have sold over 43 million records around the world. In the UK alone they have scored 10 multi-platinum albums and 14 No.1 hits, making them the top-selling group of the past decade.
This prolific chart domination is attributed to hits like ‘Swear It Again’, ‘Flying Without Wings’, ‘What Makes A Man’, ‘Uptown Girl’, ‘Queen Of My Heart’, ‘World Of Our Own’, ‘Unbreakable’, ‘You Raise Me Up’ and ‘The Rose’. Critical acclaim for the group has come via numerous awards including two BRITS, an MTV Europe Music Award and being the only artists to win the prestigious Record of the Year an incredible four times.
Money generated by Forestry Commission Live Music ticket sales is spent directly on the nation’s woodlands, benefiting everything from butterflies to walkers.
Westlife with special guests will be performing:
Friday 15th July Thetford Forest, Nr Brandon, Suffolk.
Saturday 16th July Westonbirt Arboretum, Nr Tetbury, Gloucestershire.
