FLYING WITH WINGS!

The pop sensations dash round the island on the day their new album 'Coast To Coast' is released...

Westlife are embarking on a whistlestop tour of BRITAIN in support of

their album, ‘COAST TO COAST’ on Monday 6 November, NME.COM can announce.

There’ll be special signing sessions at three Virgin Megastores around

the UK, beginning at midnight at the Buchanan Street Megastore in

Glasgow. From there the boys will fly down to Manchester‘s Market

Street branch for a 7am session, before finally appearing at 3pm at

Virgin‘s new branch in London‘s Piccadilly Circus.

The boys will be hoping to boost sales of ‘Coast To Coast’ – already

predicted to be a big Christmas seller – since both Fatboy Slim and the

Spice Girls are releasing their own albums on the same day. But signing

don’t always do the trick. Victoria Beckham toured a series of branches

of Woolworths, only signing copies of ‘Out Of Your Mind’ that had

already been bought, but still lost out on Number One to Spiller.

Meanwhile Westlife have yet to respond to comments made by Steps, who

accused the record-breaking band of releasing singles in ‘slow’ chart

weeks in order to guarantee Number Ones.
