It’s going to be the romantic date concert of the season as former Westlife front man Shane Filan returns to the Philippines for his first solo major concert.
The much awaited concert happening on October 1, 2014 at the World Trade Center Manila is part of Shane’s ongoing You & Me World Tour to promote his debut album.
From the biggest hits of his former group, songs from his debut album and some of the most requested tunes from his fans, Shane promises there’s going to be a favorite for everyone in the crowd.
“I know a lot Filipinos are romantic so I’ve prepared a list of songs that’s going to make you sing, dance and fall in love again,” he said.
Shane also hinted about doing a few covers of some classic love songs and teased about an unexpected mashup that will surprise even his long time fans.
This will be Shane’s first ever major show in Manila after the Irish Boyband’s sentimental farewell tour back in 2011.
Last year, Shane came back to Manila to promote his Everything to Me EP and promised all his fans to come back for a solo concert and share his debut album.
The new album is dominated by up-tempo and mid-tempo songs, a reflection of his own record collection, mixing pop, soul, country and even a hint of traditional Irish music. It has also been well received by fans and critics who described as a “progression from Westlife’s sound… the end result is a collection of adult contemporary songs that mix a variety of musical styles.”
Shane revealed that he took inspiration from the likes of The Lumineers, Train and Mumford & Sons when writing and recording the album.
"I got off to a really good start, Shane said adding, “Everything to Me felt like beginners' luck, but I didn’t know how good it was. Then the label were phoning, going "This is great!" I’d shown to myself I could do this and that took the pressure off.”
The album features writing credits and production from the likes of Steve Mac, Wayne Hector, Nick Atkinson, Paul Barry, Cass Lowe, Patrick Mascall, Kylie Sackley, Brandon Hood and Martin Terefe, who has also produced songs for big name artists such as Lana Del Rey, Enrique Iglesias, LeAnn Rimes, Faith Hill and Jason Mraz.
