Westlife - Westlife Bid Farewell To Fans At Final Show

Irish boyband Westlife bowed out in style on Saturday night (23Jun12) as they played their last ever concert for 80,000 thrilled fans in Dublin.
The group announced earlier this year (12) that they had decided to call it quits after 14 years together, and they embarked on one final tour of Europe.
They returned home on Friday (22Jun12) and Saturday to play a two huge shows at Dublin's Croke Park to bid an emotional farewell to their loyal devotees.
The show kickstarted with burning effigies of the quartet as they performed hits including What About Now, What Makes A Man, Swear It Again and their biggest hit, Flying Without Wings.
The stars fought back tears as they thanked fans for their support, with a visibly moved Kian Egan telling the crowd, "As this is the very last Westlife concert, the whole idea was to be able to get out here and see our fans one last time and celebrate 14 years. It has finally arrived."
Bandmate Mark Feehily added, "We are really glad you have shared this all with us. To look out there and see you guys is crazy.
"For 14 years the Westlife fans have made our dreams come true, this show is dedicated to each and every one of you. Our fans mean so much. You have never stopped supporting us."
