Shane Filan has announced an Olympia Theatre date as part of his upcoming Love Always tour of the UK and Ireland.

The former Westlife star will play the intimate venue on Thursday October 19th with pre-sale tickets on sale Tuesday May 9 at 9am and general sale kicking off on Friday May 12 at 9am.

Shane (37) will also play Belfast's Waterfront Hall on October 22.  These will be his only two Irish dates.

The tour comes on the back of his new album Love Always, which is releasing soon.

”Love Always, is a collection of some of my favourite classic love songs. It's an album I've wanted to make for a long time. For me there's nothing quite like singing an amazing ballad and this album is full of them," he says.

"Some of the ideas for it came directly from my fans because they would always say to me, we would love to hear you sing this song. So I decided to make a list of all my favourite love songs and then put them together on one album. The hard part was narrowing it down to those that have ended up on the album.

"There's also a few original tracks on there, some that I've written myself. It's always amazing to get into the studio and see what we can come up with.

"I can't wait for my fans to hear the album. Its been a long time coming. “
