It’s going to be the romantic date concert of the season as former Westlife frontman Shane Filan returns to the Philippines for his first solo major concert.
Happening on October 1 at the World Trade Center Manila, the much-awaited concert 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 mash-up that will surprise even his long time fans.
This will be Shane’s first major show in Manila after the Irish boy band’s sentimental farewell tour back in 2011.
Last year, Shane was here to promote his Everything to Me EP and promised all his fans to come back for a solo concert and share his debut album. Now that he’s ready, he presents a new album 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.
Shane revealed that he took inspiration from the likes of The Lumineers, Train and Mumford & Sons when writing and recording the album, which 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.
