Westlife add a third date to their farewell tour at The O2
The O2, the most popular music and entertainment venue in the world, today announced that due to a massive demand, Westlife have added a third date to their Farewell Tour.
The overwhleming demand has meant a third date, Thursday 7 June, has been added to their tour at The O2. More fans can now buy tickets to see the Irish boy band for what will be their final tour.
The band recently announced that they would be splitting after over a decade on the road together. "After 14 years, 26 top ten hits including 14 number one singles, 11 top 5 albums, 7 of which hit the top spot and have collectively sold over 44 million copies around the world, 10 sell out tours and countless memories that we will forever cherish, we announce our plan to go our separate ways after a greatest hits collection this Christmas and a farewell tour in 2012.
"The decision is entirely amicable and after spending all of our adult life together so far, we want to have a well-earned break and look at new ventures. We see the farewell tour as the perfect way to celebrate our incredible career along with our fans. We are really looking forward to getting out on the tour and seeing our fans one last time.
"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."
Kian, Mark, Nicky and Shane
Westlife will now be performing 3 nights at The O2 on 23, 24 May and 7 June 2012.
