Background

Before the album was released, different reports had been publicized, such as Westlife already having their 2010 tour with two dates in Croke Park on their minds. The tour was designed by Baz Halpin and produced by William Baker as said from an article with the content and design used for the tour. On 28 May, it was announced that Westlife would play an intimate and exclusive gig called “A night with Westlife” at The O2 in Dublin, the gig was filmed and streamed live via The O2’s blueroom website. The event took place on 20 August with a shorter and different setlist. The tour has been tagged by Stereoboard UK as the fourth most in-demand tour of 2010. The tour was seen by 360,000 fans.
