Hot off the back of announcing his new album Love Always, Shane Filan has announced his major indoor UK Tour, Love Always, taking in some of the UK’s best loved venues.

Shane says, "Love Always, is a collection of some of my favourite classic love songs. It's an album I've wanted to make for a long time. For me there’s nothing quite like singing an amazing ballad and this album is full of them. Some of the song suggestions came directly from my fans because they would always say to me, we would love to hear you sing this song. So, I decided to make a list of all my favourite love songs and then put them together on one album. The hard part was narrowing it down to those on the album. There's also a few original tracks on there, some that I've written myself. It's always amazing to get into the studio and see what we can create. I can't wait for my fans to hear the album. It has been a long time coming."

Shane has cemented his position as one of the UK’s most popular male solo artists, following phenomenal success with Westlife - one of the world’s most successful bands of the last few decades – and his own hugely successful Right Here Tour in 2016, which saw fans pleading for another run on the road. Shane was keen to oblige and the idea for Love Always was soon born, with this latest tour including all his popular hits and tracks from the new album.

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.

Australian singer, songwriter and surfer Matt Gresham will be joining Shane on tour (instead of Guy Sebastian). His melodic vocals and emotive lyrics will no doubt prove a hit at the concerts on the Love Always Tour.

Matt, originally from Western Australia, now lives in Berlin and is signed to Warner Germany where he is currently working on the material for his highly anticipated new album; a process which has seen him jet across to Los Angeles to write with a host of collaborators, including Guy Sebastian, David Ryan Harris and producer James Young.

With over 3.6 million in combined streams under his belt from his last three singles Survive on Love, Ghost and Small Voices Matt has quickly built a name globally having been independently recording, touring and playing across Australia for over a decade. He has also recently toured the UK, supporting James Arthur on his sold-out tour.

Matt says, “I love the UK, and joining the “Love Always” Tour is a great way to show who I am and give a taste of my music and what I love doing best. It’s an honour to work with Shane; he’s a terrific artist, whose career history as both a solo performer and as the lead singer of Westlife is something to aspire to.”
