Westlife is big in mainland China, and its announcement to disband has struck fans hard.
But before the band officially wraps up its 14-year career, screaming fans have one last chance to sing “Swear It Again,” “My Love” and “Uptown Girl” out loud together with the four Irish boys.
The long-running boy band has squeezed China into its “Greatest Hits Farewell Tour,” which is mainly planned for the United Kingdom and Ireland.
The band will tour to seven Chinese cities from February 22-March 2. This will be Westlife’s only stop in Asia on its last tour.
Here is the schedule of Westlife’s “Greatest Hits Farewell Tour” in China.
Beijing: February. 22
Hangzhou: February. 24
Shanghai: February 25
Shenzhen: February 26
Wuhan: February 28
Chengdu: March 1
Guangzhou: March 2
The concerts' Chinese organizer is yet to release the set list, but according to various Chinese media, the band is due to perform all of its 14 UK number-one singles.
