The Where Dreams Come True Tour was the second concert tour by Irish boy band Westlife seen by 600,000 fans making £12,000,000, in support of their second studio album, Coast to Coast. The tour was nicknamed "The No Stools Tour" due to the band's reputation of performing while perched on stools. Before this full-length world tour, they had a short tour within Uk, Ireland and Southeast Asian countries. A Coast To Coast Itinerary was made as a tour programme with original 63-page A5 sized spiral-bound tour itinerary book for 1 February to 31 March UK tour. It lists the band possibly doing 10 nights at Wembley Arena. Includes details on tour dates & venues, Crew & Band member listing, hotel & travel arrangements for both band & crew and more, complete with the original front colour cover and front clear protective cover laminate. This would have only been issued to crew/people involved with the tour, and were not for sale to the general public. In most cases less than 100 copies were ever made.[1]
