This is the 5th world tour of the Irish pop band Westlife seen by 395,000 fans. This tour set a goal that they will play in smaller venues and for smaller audiences to justify the title "Face to Face". The filmed video album for this tour came from their performance at the Wembley Arena. This also had a second leg of the tour 'summer nights' all over the biggest UK outdoor parks, castles and racing grounds. The Live concert DVD includes the same track listing with the setlist above. While the Australian version have the DVD with their studio album Back Home with The Love Album photo shoot and the music videos for "You Raise Me Up" and "Amazing".[1]

The lads were also meant to tour Australia but this was postponed until the next tour. This was due to recording commitments. This concert tour was marked as the first time Steve Anderson and William Baker had worked together outside of the Kylie Minogue camp.[2]
