Irish singing star Ronan Keating has been announced as the headlining act for the opening night of Rock the Stadium.

The 35-year-old, who first found fame as part of the internationally successful group Boyzone, will perform at Westfield on Friday, June 21.

Keating has sold a combined total of 45 million singles and albums, and holds a Guinness World Record for contributing to 30 consecutive songs that reached the top ten of the UK chart.

He said: “I am really excited to be performing at the Falkirk Stadium this summer - I love playing outdoors in these great venues.

“What makes it more exciting, and something magical, is playing to a Scottish audience.”

Keating will perform a set mixing solo hits such as ‘When You Say Nothing At All’ and ‘Life Is A Rollercoaster’ with some classic Boyzone songs.

Also playing live on the first night of the Rock the Stadium will be Brian McFadden, a former member of Westlife and now a major solo artist, and James Walsh, who gained attention as the songwriting star behind cult indie band Starsailor.

Andy Thomson, director of events at Falkirk Football Club, said: “Everyone on the Rock the Stadium team had massive smiles on their faces today. Attracting someone of Ronan’s quality and stature is a major achievement and we can’t wait to hear him live at the Falkirk Stadium in what is sure to be a sell-out crowd.

“We have worked hard to bring the best musical talent to Falkirk and Ronan Keating and his band are sure to get the weekend off to a great start.”
