The wait may finally be over! One of UK’s biggest boybands – Westlife – will be getting back together.
This news comes courtesy the band’s former manager Louis Walsh. The “X-Factor” judge confirmed that a reunion between Mark Feehily, Shane Filan, Nicky Byrne, and Kian Egan are definitely in the works.
“A Westlife reunion is definitely going to happen – but I have no idea when. I’m still really good friends with all of the lads… I was chatting to Mark Feehily last night about the Christmas album he’s bringing out, and it’s amazing. I’d forgotten how talented he is. I think the reunion will be great, but it’s up to them to decide when they will do it,” Walsh told RSVP Magazine.
Since the Irish music mogul’s comments were made public, fans on social media have been going on a frenzy at the possibility of a Westlife reunion. Several fans are also having their fingers crossed that Brian McFadden (who quit the group in March 2004 to focus on his family and solo career) will rejoin the reunion.
For those that don’t remember, the Westlife members split and went separate ways in 2012 after 14 years together in the music business. To echo many fans, it would be a dream come true if the quartet reunite.
