Shane on the tour: "I'm so excited to be heading out on my first ever solo tour. The album 'You and Me’ means so much to me and I cannot wait to play these songs live in front of an audience, and of course there will be some old fan favourites from memory lane and a couple of surprises in there too. Hope to see you all there"

Filan will release his debut solo album 'You & Me’ through Capitol Records on November 4. This follows the success of his debut single 'Everything To Me’. The next single 'About You’ will be released a day before the album – November 3. 'About You’ is written by Shane with Steve Mac and Wayne Hector, who famously wrote 'Flying Without Wings’ for Westlife.

 Shane co-wrote a handful of Westlife songs, but his solo album sees him emerge as a pop writer to be reckoned with.  Shane says "I got off to a really good start. Everything To Me felt like beginners’ luck, but I didn’t know how good it was. Then the label were phoning, going "This is great!" I’d shown to myself I could do this and that took the pressure off. I was flying in those first two weeks and then suddenly I was in Nashville with really famous songwriters, partly thinking 'WOW!’ but also 'Right, let’s do this.’"

Shane’s co-writers include his old Westlife writer/producer team Steve Mac & Wayne Hector, plus Nick Atkinson (Gabrielle Aplin), Nexus (Lana Del Rey), Paul Barry & Patrick Maskell (Enrique Iglesias’ Hero) and Nashville songwriters Kylie Sackley and Brandon Hood (LeAnn Rimes, Faith Hill). It’s produced by Martin Terefe (Train, Jason Mraz) and Steve Mac.
