Former Westlife star Shane Filan was greeted to a raptuorous reception on Sunday night (9th March) at the Waterfront Hall in Belfast on his first solo gig in the city.
Shane entertained hundreds of screaming fans with a mixture of his new solo material taken from his debut album You and Me as well as some of the classic Westlife back catalogue.
The 34-year-old was joined on the Irish pub themed stage, complete with ‘Ó’Fialáin’s bar’ by his five-piece band.
His family including wife Gillian and three children travelled to the gig from Sligo to support his first solo date in Northern Ireland.
Shane told the audience that he had warned his band before coming on stage about the noise that the Belfast crowds can make, and he certainly wasn’t wrong.
Tweeting after the show, Shane said: “Belfast! Wow that was the loudest ever! My ears are ringing! Shall we do it again tomorrow?”
Sunday night was the first of his two-leg Northern Irish dates before he moves on to the Olympia Theatre in Dublin on Tuesday for two nights.
