Westlife will play Croke Park in 2012 as part of the Farewell Tour and will be supported by "The Wanted" in Croke Park on Saturday 23rd of June.
Westlife today confirmed that their grand finale after 14 chart topping years together, will be a massive celebration of all their greatest hits at Croke Park on Saturday 23rd June, with very special guests The Wanted. The band sold out the venue twice before in 2008 and 2010 and stated ‘It was the most incredible night of our lives… the highlight of our career’.
Ticketmaster have been inundated with calls from shocked fans since Westlife announced that they were calling it a day. Ticketmaster is opening all across the country at 8am on Friday 11 November to meet the demand for tickets. Tickets are priced from €59.50 and limited to 8 per transaction.
The tour entitled ‘The Farewell Tour’ will see Kian, Shane, Mark and Nicky perform their 14 number one singles and hits in one spectacular live show. Having sold over 44 million records worldwide, the aforementioned 14 number one singles and 7 number one albums, Irish super-group Westlife are celebrating over 14 years of success by also releasing their brand new single ‘Lighthouse’ on 11th November with the release of their
‘Greatest Hits’ on the 18th November.
The single written by Gary Barlow and John Shanks is an instantly recognizable Westlife classic, complete with soaring melodies, rousing lyrics and is one of four brand new tracks to feature on their album.
The band said: “We never imagined when we started out in 1998 that 14 years later we would still be recording, touring and having hits together. It has been a dream come true for all of us”.
“It’s almost hard to believe that we’ve been doing this for as long as we have. We’re incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved and are looking forward to releasing our Greatest Hits album and performing them live on the tour as a special thank you to our fans who have supported us throughout our career.”
