WESTLIFE star-gone-solo Shane Filan is performing in Yeovil and Bridgwater this summer.

Filan was a lead singer of the Simon Cowell-signed boy band which spent 14 years in the music business.

The group sold more than 45million records worldwide, totting up 14 number one singles in the UK and 26 UK top ten singles.

Shane’s debut solo album, You And Me, sees Filan taking an acoustic-pop direction.

He will be at the Blake Hall in Bridgwater on Saturday, July 19, and at Westland Leisure Complex in Yeovil the next night.

Tickets, priced £30, are available from the Blake Hall, music shop Strings ’n’ Things in Bridgwater, the Westland Leisure complex and via the SeeTickets website.

Both shows are expected to sell out.
