Shane Filan returns to Hull City Hall
Irish pop star brings Love Always tour to venue in May

Westlife’s Shane Filan has announced the next leg of his Love Always tour which includes a date at Hull City Hall in May.

Hot off the back of the hugely successful initial dates of the tour, which took place in autumn 2017, the second leg will take in some of the UK’s best loved venues, arriving in Hull on Friday, May 4.

Shane said: “I stood on the stage on the original leg of the Love Always Tour and promised I would return – and here I am.

“Love Always is a collection of some of my favourite classic love songs. It's the album I've wanted to make for a long time. For me, being able to perform this on stage is humbling. It reminds me of just how phenomenal it is to be a musician and how lucky I am to have such great fans.

“The whole tour went so well I thought I would love to take it back out. It was such fun and the fans have taken Love Always to their hearts. I want to get out and perform it for them, although I may be adding a few surprises into the mix to make this leg a little different – so watch out.”

Shane has cemented his position as one of the UK’s most popular male solo artists, following phenomenal success with Westlife, one of the world’s most successful bands of the last few decades.

He has taken to life on the road, most recently delivering two hugely successful Right Here tours in 2016, which saw fans asking for more. Shane was keen to oblige and the idea for Love Always was soon born, with this latest tour including all his popular hits and tracks from the album.

Westlife had 14 chart topping singles and 44m sales. Their career, Shane says, ‘fulfilled all of our dreams 1000 times over’. It’s been a remarkable journey for a singer songwriter who grew up inspired by an admiration of Backstreet Boys and Michael Jackson.

Liz Doogan-Hobbs MBE, CEO of tour promoters LHG Live, said: “Love Always was a brilliant tour to promote. It was lively, exciting and dynamic. Visually it was the most eye-catching tour Shane has done and we are thrilled to be working with Shane and his team once again on the second leg of Love Always where he has the opportunity to deliver this energetic and contemporary concert once more. As ever we have to directly thank Shane’s fans who always support every date he plays. They really are the best.”

Tickets for the Shane Filan Love Always as Hull City Hall on Friday, May 4 2018 are from £33.50 plus £1.50 per ticket booking fee. They go on sale at 9am on Friday, December 15. Book at the Hull City Hall box office or call 01482 300 306. Visit www.hulltheatres.co.uk to book online.

Calum Scott returns to Hull City Hall
Hull singer brings Only Human tour to venue for two nights in April

Hull singer Calum Scott will return to the city with his Only Human tour in April next year.

The former winner of the Hull Daily Mail’s Star Search competition will perform two nights at Hull City Hall. The shows will follow the release of his debut album of the same name on March 9.

Pre-orders for the album launched today and to celebrate, Calum released the lyric video for the first single, which can be seen HERE.

Written by Calum, Jon Maguire and Corey James Sanders, the emotionally resonant piano ballad is one of numerous songs produced by Fraser T Smith (Adele, Ellie Goulding) for the album. Calum also worked with producers Jayson DeZuzio, Oak Felder, Oscar Gorres and Phil Paul.

Calum, who used to work at Hull City Council before appearing on Britain’s Got Talent in 2015, said: “I wrote this album with the intention of connecting with people all around the world using my own personal experiences, hoping that if I can inspire one person to be happy being themselves, bring some comfort or just make someone smile with my music, then all of my experiences have been worthwhile.”

Fans who pre-order the album in digital format will instantly receive “You Are The Reason” and Calum’s two previous singles – “Rhythm Inside,” which has more than 25 million streams worldwide and his poignant version of Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own,” which charted at No. 1 on iTunes in 11 countries – along with Tiësto’s remix of the same song.

Dancing On My Own charted in more than 34 countries on Spotify, peaking at No. 1 on the Viral chart in six, including the UK and US. Now certified Platinum in four countries, it was the best-selling UK single of 2016 by a British solo artist and was nominated for a Brit Award for Best Single. The song has more than 550 million streams worldwide, while views of the video are approaching 225 million.

In addition to 11 original tracks, the Only Human album also includes Calum’s haunting acoustic version of Bob Dylan’s Not Dark Yet.

A tragic tale of searing passion and memorable music, La Traviata is Verdi’s outstanding interpretation of one of the most popular love stories of the 19th Century, La Dame aux Camelias.
Based on a true story, it tells of the passionate loves and life of the consumptive courtesan, Violetta.

Back by overwhelming public demand, Madama Butterfly returns with exquisite sets, including spectacular Japanese garden, and fabulous costumes.
One of the world’s most popular operas, Puccini’s Madama Butterfly tells the heart-breaking story of the beautiful young Japanese girl who falls in love with an American naval lieutenant – with dramatic results.
Highlights include the melodic Humming Chorus, the moving aria One Fine Day and the unforgettable Love Duet.
Both productions boast sumptuous sets and costumes and are sung in Italian with English surtitles (correct).
The operas will be performed at Hull New Theatre on Tuesday, March 27 2018 (La Traviata) and Wednesday, March 28 2018 (Madama Butterfly) but audiences do not have to wait until next year to enjoy opera from award-winning producer Ellen Kent.

Scottish Rock Band Travis perform their hugely successful album live
Glaswegian 90s musicians Travis are set to rock Hull City Hall this December as they perform their multi-platinum selling album The Man Who, live.

Released 19 years ago, the album sounds as fresh today as it did then.  One of the most successful British albums of the last 20 years, it spawned the timeless singles, Writing To Reach You, Driftwood, Turn and possibly the band’s most iconic song, Why Does It Always Rain On Me.
Singer/ guitarist Fran Healy said; “songs are like emotional bookmarks in time. When you hear a song you are transported to those times and feel strong echoes of the feelings you felt. Rarely does an album have this ability so performing The Man Who once again will be a joy!”
Produced by Nigel Godrich, The Man Who spent an astonishing 11 weeks at Number 1, selling nearly 3 million copies. It was the biggest selling UK album in 2000, propelled by an incendiary Glastonbury performance in the rain! Recognition quickly followed including Ivor Novello Awards for Best Songwriter and Best Contemporary Song for Why Does It Always Rain On Me? and BRIT Awards for Best British Band and Best British Album.
Travis play Hull City Hall on 18 December 2018. Tickets, priced from £39.50 go on sale from 9am on Friday 9 March, 2018. Book at the Hull City Hall box office or call 01482 300 306. Visit our new website www.hulltheatres.co.uk to book online.
