HAMILTON PARK IN A WORLD OF THEIR OWN AS WESTLIFE SIGN UP FOR SUMMER DATE
- Irish supergroup hailed as a "massive coup" for Scottish venue as they are the first act confirmed for two July weekend standalone gigs -
Hamilton Park has today made its biggest ever music concert announcement by confirming that worldwide phenomena Westlife will perform a standalone live concert at the venue this summer.
Westlife - Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan, Mark Feehily and Shane Filan - have enjoyed an amazing 14 UK number ones and will appear at Hamilton Park on Saturday July 23, a year to the day since 13,000 fans packed the venue to see JLS.
Organisers expect another sell-out for the Irish supergroup and are again breaking new ground by holding two standalone concerts over one weekend - the second act, who will perform 24 hours earlier, will be announced in the coming weeks.
The confirmation that 44 million record-selling Westlife are coming to Hamilton in July is expected to spark a clamour for tickets which go on sale from today - just hours after the four-piece performed in Glasgow.
The back-to-back concerts mark more major progress in the development of Hamilton Park as a live music and entertainment venue after last summer's first standalone gig featuring JLS resulted in a 13,000 sell-out crowd. That gig was one of the venue's highlights of 2010, which also included live performances by Olly Murs and Alesha Dixon, all combining to help Hamilton Park win the Lanarkshire Tourism & Leisure Award at the recent Lanarkshire Business Excellence Awards 2011.
