Speaking about the Stadiums in the Summer Tour coming to The Weston Homes Stadium, Commercial Manager Alex Harris said: “We are delighted to be bringing Westlife to the Weston Homes Stadium in 2020. They were one of the biggest boy bands in the world and have returned with new music so it is great that we are able to attract them to Peterborough.
“We feel as a football club that we have put the city on the map when it comes to attracting big stars with Sir Elton John, Sir Tom Jones, Craig David, Blue and Steps already making their debuts at our stadium. We hope the Peterborough public continue to support what we are doing and look forward to welcoming Westlife and their loyal fan base to the city.”
The Weston Homes date is presented by live music promoters Cuffe and Taylor and follows the stunning success of this summer’s ‘Twenty Tour’ - Westlife’s fastest selling tour of all time.
“The reaction to our comeback tour was beyond anything any of us ever imagined so we’re going to do it all over again but this time in some of the largest outdoor venues in the UK. The shows are going to be incredible and will include all our greatest hits. We can’t wait to perform in Peterborough,” the band said in a statement.
