Shayne Ward Live 2007 was the first UK tour by Shayne Ward. It took place in January and February 2007, following his win on The X Factor in 2005 and the release of his self-titled debut album.

Production[edit]

Production for the tour started in November, 2006 with rehearsals at Litestructures, South Kirkby, West Yorkshire. During this time Ward's dancers and band were hired through an audition process.

Set List[edit]

Critical Reception[edit]

Although most reviews commented on how Ward was an "amazing live performer" and was able to "hold his own on stage", they also slated the shows for including too many cover versions and not enough of his own material from his then new album. A South Yorkshire based newspaper "The Star" mentioned that this was expected from one of Louis Walsh's protégés.

Supporting acts[edit]

The support acts for the tour were as followed:

  • Roxanne
  • Dyyce
  • Cushh
  • Lady Nada
