Irish singer Shane Filan was down for a little chat with fans and local media before his concert on 22nd July 2017 at Tunjungan Plaza Convention Hall Surabaya.
Since it’s the first time Shane is performing in Surabaya, the concert has been highly anticipated. By what we heard at the press conference, Surabaya fans are in for a treat.
The main vocalist of Westlife will be performing hits from his past solo albums, “You & Me” (2013) and “Right Here” (2015), as well as some Westlife’s greatest hit songs such as “What About Now”, which he mentioned to be one of his favourite songs. He will also be promoting songs from the new album “Love Always” with title track, “This I Promise You”.
When asked, Shane explained that “Love Always” is an album he’s been wanting to make for a long time. It’s a collection of beautiful and glorious past songs that’s close to his heart.
He also mentioned that he will be promoting the album continuously after his third solo album is released in August. Shane hopes to perform in countries he hasn’t visited in awhile like China and India this coming year.
We gotta give it to Shane’s musicianship. Throughout the conference, Shane was funny and witty. He was easy going and professional. He is in the entertainment business, alright.
The singer didn’t want to give any spoiler and intended for the concert to be a surprise. Yet fans managed get some information from him. A little girl fan who came with her mother melted his heart when she said “Knee Deep In My Heart” is her favourite song. He said he’ll be singing and dedicating the song for her tomorrow.
Fans present come from different parts of Indonesia – Surabaya, Jakarta, Bandung, Manado, Semarang, Balikpapan, and even Singapore. The enthusiastic response for ‘Love Always Tour’ Surabaya surprised promotor, LCR Enterprise. We hope this only means more shows in the future.
