Westlife have confirmed they are set for a reunion, six years after their split.
The Irish boy band – comprised of Kian Egan, Nicky Byrne, Mark Feehily and Shane Filan – have revealed they have recorded a brand new album, and will head out on a stadium and arena tour in support of the record next year.
The announcement was made on their Facebook page in a short video, which simply showed the group sitting down and shaking hands, before turning to the camera and saying: “Hi, we’re Westlife.”
A caption on the video then read: “Westlife. New music. New tour. Coming soon.”

Shane told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column: “We genuinely missed each other and missed the buzz of performing on stage together to all our fans.
“We still have a lot that we want to achieve as a band and we want to bring our new music to fans all over the world.”
