​Andy Brown and Max Restaino to support Shane Filan on “Love Always” Tour 2018

Andy Brown and Max Restaino will be joining Shane Filan on the second leg of his hugely successful “Love Always” Tour in April and May – a major indoor tour, taking in some of the UK’s best loved venues.

Andy Brown is perhaps best known as frontman and chief songwriter for chart regulars Lawson, but now, during the bands’ hiatus, the singer song writer is all set to become the next figurehead in the unstoppable rise of crossover British country music, combining his pop sensibilities with a lifelong love of the Nashville sounds.

His upcoming solo debut is about to land a double punch: winning him a whole new audience while delighting his existing legion of fans. He's been writing and recording with the elite of musicians in both Nashvile and Minneapolis, crafting an album that speaks of his affinity with American country, soul, gospel, pop and rock but which retains a proudly British flavour, and with his own natural affinity with melody and sound, the result is certain to astound.

Andy will be supporting Shane Filan on his “Love Always Tour” and it will be a perfect opportunity to see him present his own unique take on country sounds.

Singer song writer Max Restaino will be joining Shane Filan on the “Love Always” Tour as special guest. The 21-year-old from Sheffield has already amassed a wealth of experience working with some of the biggest names in show business from Gary Barlow to Peter Kay. The budding star has toured all over the UK building up a steady fan base and appeared as special guest for Rebecca Ferguson on her 20-date Superwoman UK Tour throughout October and November 2016, which included a show at The London Palladium. In 2017 he also supported support Steps on their 22-date sold-out UK arena tour, including shows at The O2 Arena and SSE Wembley Arena.

Max recently wrote, produced and recorded his debut album ‘The Time It Takes’ which is currently in HMV stores across the UK. ‘Sugar Rush’ the latest single from Max’s debut album ‘The Time It takes’ recently hit the Top 10 in the Music Week Pop Club Chart. He performed all the instruments and produced all songs on the album.

Shane Filan has cemented his position as one of the UK’s most popular male solo artists, following phenomenal success with Westlife, one of the world’s most successful bands of the last few decades. He has taken to the life on the road most recently delivering two hugely successful “Right Here” Tours in 2016, which saw fans pleading for another run on the road. Shane was keen to oblige and the idea for “Love Always” was soon born, with this latest tour including all his popular hits and tracks from the album.

Shane says, “I stood on the stage on the original leg of the “Love Always” Tour and promised I would return – and here I am! The whole tour went so well I thought I would love to take it back out. It was such fun and the fans have taken “Love Always” to their hearts. I want to get out and perform it for them, although I may be adding a few surprises into the mix to make this leg a little different – so watch out!”

He added, “Love Always”, is a collection of some of my favourite classic love songs. It's the album I've wanted to make for a long time. For me, being able to perform this on stage is humbling. It reminds me of just how phenomenal it is to be a musician and how lucky I am to have such great fans.”
