Westlife in AlUla: The Irish boyband make their Saudi debut



Tickets are on sale for the September concert at Maraya Concert Hall.

You wait so long for one Westlife concert in the Middle East and then two come along at once. The Irish boyband are bringing their Wild Dreams Tour to the UAE and Saudi Arabia, and have announced that their show in the kingdom is coming to AlUla. 

Westlife’s world tour was originally scheduled to take place in Riyadh, but it is now coming to the desert landscapes of AlUla and the shimmering Maraya Concert Hall. The concert takes place on 28 September, and tickets are now available. Early bird offers are on offer, and prices start from SAR 330. 

Ever since the group started in 1998, they have notched up hit singles and legions of screaming fans. Over the years they have won World Music Awards, BRIT Awards and MTV Awards. The legendary band are now a foursome with the singers Shane Filan, Mark Feehily, Kian Egan and Nicky Byrne. The original line-up included Brian MacFadden, who quit back in 2004. 

The Wild Dreams Tour coincides with the release of Westlife’s eighteenth studio album, Wild Dreams. We are expecting the group to perform their classic and new songs, so this is your chance to sing along to their hits including Flying Without Wings, Swear it Again, What Makes a Man and World of Our Own. 

Westlife are no strangers to the Middle East – they performed in the UAE’s Coca-Cola Arena back in 2019, but this is the first time in Saudi Arabia. Westlife in AlUla promises to be a memorable night. AlUla has welcomed A-list stars over the years, from Alicia Keys to Lionel Ritchie, who have delivered spectacular shows against the desert backdrop. 

Want an encore? Westlife are also scheduled to perform in Abu Dhabi on 29 September. So put the dates in your diary and get ready to swoon.
