Full Color Entertainment, the concert promoter that will bring Irish pop vocal group Westlife to Indonesia this year, has just announced that Westlife will perform twice.
The promoter posted a video on its Instagram account on Saturday, informing that the group was set to perform on Aug. 6 in addition to the already sold out Aug. 7 show.
Westlife fans, We hear you! We will add Second show due to phenomenal demand. Westlife The Twenty Tour Live in Indonesia second show on 6 August 2019 at ICE, BSD. Please wait for more information @FullColorParty. Tickets will be on Sale on: Tuesday, 2nd April 2019 on 11:59 am Stay tune! ✌🏻 #fullcolorentertainment #westlife #westlifejakarta #thetwentytourjakarta
While the additional show is good news for fans who missed out on buying tickets for the Aug. 7 show, those who already have Aug. 7 tickets are miffed by the promoter’s decision as they will now watch the second day show.
The disappointed ticket holders expressed their annoyance in the comment section of the Instagram post. The comments led to some debate, with some fans questioning what was wrong with watching second-day show. One answer was that they felt the second-day show would be a different experience [in an unpleasant way] as photos and videos of the first show would have already been circulating online, thus spoiling the [second show] experience.

The concert, part of Westlife’s The Twenty Tour that marks its 20th anniversary, will take place at the Indonesia Convention Exhibition (ICE) BSD in South Tangerang.
Westlife was formed in 1998 with Shane Filan, Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan, Mark Feehily, and Brian McFadden. The latter’s departure from Westlife left the group as a quartet.
The group disbanded in 2012, but announced its comeback on Oct. 3, 2018. (gis/mut)
