Former Westlife Frontman Shane Filan in Manila for Philippine Promo Tour

Shane Filan, better known as british boy band Westlife’s lead vocalist, is now here in Manila for a series of shows with the following schedule: September 28, 6PM at the Skydome, SM City North EDSA, and September 29, 4PM at the Podium, Mandaluyong. This is in line with his promotional activities for his new EP, “Everything To Me” distributed exclusively by MCA Music (Universal Philippines).

If you guys are not familiar with Shane, then I’m pretty sure most 90s kids would recognize songs he sang with world phenomenon boy band Westlife, such as If I Let You Go, I Lay My Love on You, Flying Without Wings, and so much more. Unfortunately, the group broke up in 2012 with a successful goodbye tour, and since then, Shane has been working on his solo material. Just last August 2013, “Everything To Me” his debut single which he co-wrote wwas released. Everything To Me was also produced my Grammy award-winning producer Martin Terefe (who also worked with big stars such as Jason Derulo, James Morrison, and Train). In the EP, Everything To Me comes with three other songs, mostly with a folkish style, something that Shane said he wanted for his solo music career. For all you Shane fans out there, a full album will be released later this year, so watch out for it!

Shane Filan Press Conference at SM Megamall Activity Center

Here are some videos of the press conference held at the SM Megamall Activity Center last September 27, 2013:


And here are some more snippets from his exclusive media interview backstage:

Some more trivia about Shane Filan: During the press conference, he shares that he found the songwriting process relaxing, and he writes about “true stories”, feelings and memries he can relate to rather than writing something pretend, which he has a hard time writing. He considers Michael Jackson as a “huge influence” in his music career, but also has high regard for Bryan Adams and country singer Garth Brooks. And for everyone who’s been asking when his Philippine concert will be, he replies with “Yes, Definitely 2014.”-HANA
