Shane Filan announces Right Here Tour 2016
IRISH POP SUPERSTAR ANNOUNCES 2016 UK TOUR AND ITS COMING TO CARDIFF ST DAVIDS HALL WEDNESDAY 09 MARCH 2016
In the wake of releasing his hit album “Right Here” in September 2015, Shane Filan has announced a major indoor UK Tour taking in some of the UK’s best loved venues and the tour is coming to Cardiff St David’s Hall on Wednesday 09 March 2016.
Shane says,“I am thrilled to be getting out on the road in March 2016. This is going to be quite a tour. I am really proud of Right Here, and now can’t wait to perform the new songs live, alongside some old favourites. I am very much looking forward to coming to Cardiff. It’s exciting to be performing across the UK & Ireland early next year!”
The release of Right Here has cemented Shanes position as one of the UK‟s most popular male solo artists, following his amazing success with Westlife, one of the world‟s most successful bands of the last few decades and this tour promises to show just why Shane is so well loved in his own right.
Shane added: “For me, there is nothing quite like the moment I see the audience singing along to the songs I wrote, and I hope the Right Here Tour will be just as memorable, just as special. I cannot wait to see all the fans again.”
Right Here was mainly recorded in London and Denmark, with Shane working on the music with Cutfather (The Saturdays, JLS), Jez Ashurst (Will Young, Gabrielle Aplin), Jon Maguire (Union J) and Tre Jean-Marie (MNEK, Jason Derulo). It was released on 25th September 2015 and reached #1 on the Irish Album Charts and the UK Top 20 in its first week.
Westlife had fourteen chart topping singles and forty-four million sales. Their career, Shane says, “fulfilled all of our dreams 1000 times over.” It’s been a remarkable journey for a singer songwriter who grew up inspired by an admiration of Backstreet Boys and Michael Jackson.
Joe Miles (pictured above) will be joining Shane Filan on his Right Here tour this March
The 19 year old singer/songwriter from Northampton has just been announced as Shane’s support act, and his emotive voice and distinctive style are certain to prove popular at each concert. Joe regularly gigs across the UK and Europe with his acoustic and full band lineups and this will be the first time that he and Shane have collaborated together.
As the youngest grandson of British Jazz legend, Terry Lightfoot, Joe has spent his childhood growing up in the wings of theatres and music festivals. Having combined his unusual musical upbringing with his main influences – including Jamie Cullum and John Mayer – Joe has self-released four EPs, all containing co-writes with Grammy Winning and Brit Award nominated singer/songwriter, Amy Wadge (Ed Sheeran – ‘Thinking Out Loud’).
In early 2015, Joe hooked up with his brother, Ollie (Producer and Drummer), to produce his ‘Home Sound’ EP, resulting in four consecutive weeks of BBC Introducing airplay and a chart position of Number 16 in the iTunes Singer/Songwriter charts. They have since continued to work very closely and are currently writing and recording new material including collaborations with Tim Kellett (ex. Simply Red).
The Shane Filan Right Here tour comes in the wake of the huge success of Shane’s same-titled Album in September 2015, the release of which cemented his position as one of the UK’s most popular male solo artists. This follows his amazing success with Westlife, one of the world’s most successful bands of the last few decades. This Right Here tour promises to show just why Shane is so well loved in his own right.
Shane says, “It’s thrilling to be getting out on the road in March and to seeing all of my fans at each venue. Joe is the perfect choice as my support act and I am delighted that we can announce him as part of the tour; he is a very talented songwriter and I am certain the fans will enjoy his performances.”
Joe says “It’s a great opportunity to show some of the material I have been working on, and hopefully it will be popular with the crowd. Shane is a fantastic artist, with such an incredible history in the music industry, something I truly aspire to, and I am so excited to be a part of this tour.”
Shane adds “I am really proud of ‘Right Here’ and now can’t wait to perform the new songs live, alongside some old favourites, and more importantly, to see my fans. Their support has been tremendous. I know they will give Joe a brilliant welcome, too.”
