90s kids rejoice – Westlife have announced they are reuniting for a mammoth 20th anniversary tour of UK and Ireland.

Starting in Belfast, members Shane Filan, Kian Egan, Mark Feehily and Nicky Byrne will be on the road for dates in May, June and July 2019, including one date at London's O2.

Sharing the news on Twitter, Mark posted: "So excited to be back with the lads & going on your next year to perform for you all. Here's to our 20th anniversary see you soon!"

Fans can expect to hear some of their greatest hits, including My Love, You Raise Me Up and Uptown Girl.

Here's everything you need to know about the Westlife tour, including how to get tickets and why Brian McFadden won't be joining them for the ride.

When do tickets go on sale?

Pre-sale starts at 9am on Tuesday October 23.

Eager fans who pre-order a copy of the new Westlife album from the official store will get exclusive access to pre-sale tickets.

General sale begins on Thursday October 25 from 9am. You can purchase tickets through Ticketmaster.

What dates will they be touring?

Westlife will be touring the UK and Ireland on the following dates:

  • Saturday May 25: Belfast SSE Arena
  • Sunday May 26: Belfast SSE Arena
  • Thursday May 30: Manchester Arena
  • Friday May 31: Newcastle Metro Radio Arena

Will Brian McFadden join the tour?

Sadly not. Shane confirmed earlier in 2018 that if Westlife did make a comeback, it would be minus Brian.

He said: "I haven't seen Brian in 10 years. We've just lost touch, it's like going to school with somebody and then not speaking.

"I wouldn't speak to him to reminisce, not at all. We all had a good relationship with Brian then he just left the band very early on and I don't think we would ever unite with him."

It may not be quite the reunion some hardcore Westlife fans may have hoped for, but there's little doubting these tickets will be snapped up fast.
