Fly without wings out of what has been a concert-deprived pandemic, as early noughties favorite Westlife is set to return to Jakarta for a concert on Feb. 11, 2023.
The concerts’ promoter, PK Entertainment, announced on their Instagram page today that the Irish quartet will be performing at Madya Stadium at Gelora Bung Karno Sports Complex.
In this video below, the four remaining members of Westlife — Shane Filan, Nicky Byrne, Mark Feehily, and Kian Egan — greet their Indonesian fans, promising an “incredible show.” Aside from their new songs from their 12th studio album Wild Dreams such as Starlight, expect to sing along to Westlife’s classic hits such as My Love, Flying Without Wings, and Fool Again at the concert.
The Jakarta concert is part of Westlife’s upcoming The Wild Dreams Tour to promote their latest album, which was released in late November 2021. The tour will kick off in Dublin on July 8, and the band will perform gigs in Ireland and the UK for the remainder of 2022. Additionally, they are scheduled to perform at Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix on Oct. 1.
Tickets will go on sale starting this Saturday at 10am on Westlife’s Jakarta concert official website and Mandiri’s m-banking app Livin’ by Mandiri. You can only purchase tickets using Bank Mandiri credit or debit card, as well as via virtual account transfer.
As for the ticket prices, they range from IDR1.45 million for category 5 to IDR3.5 million for category 1, excluding taxes and admin fee. The price for the VVIP category is not yet available at the time of publishing, which includes exclusive merchandise, VIP entrance to the venue, and access to VIP lounge.
Westlife last visited Jakarta in early August 2019 for a two-day concert as part of The Twenty Tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their career.
