Westlife Go Home

Pop heart-throbs WESTLIFE are thrilled about taking their music back to their Irish home town.

They are preparing for two massive gigs in Sligo later this month (25-27JUL03), where three of the fivesome hail from - and they can't hide their excitement.

Singer SHANE FILAN says, "We tried to put on a gig in Sligo so many times but it kept going wrong, so it's a great feeling to finally be able to do it. The buzz is going to be huge that weekend, fans are going to come from all over Europe so it'll be brilliant for the town. "The people there are amazing, they treat us all really normally, and that's why KIAN (EGAN), MARK (FEEHILY) and I still live there.

"A lot of people there are really proud of us and proud for Sligo too because we're the first sort of band out of there to reach this kind of stage."
