R.I.P. Westlife!

| Filed under: Music MinuteR.I.P.

Sad!

After 14 years together, the Irish boyband Westlife have announced that they will be splitting up!

In their official statement:

“After 14 years, 26 Top 10 hits including 14 number one singles, 11 Top 5 albums, seven 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 today announce our plan to go our separate ways after a greatest hits collection this Christmasand a farewell tour next year.

“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 greatest hits collection and 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.”

“Over the years Westlife has become so much more to us than just a band. Westlife are a family. We would like to thank our fans who have been with us on this amazing journey and are part of our family too. 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.”

Aww! We'll miss you boys!

Enjoy the band's last single ever, Lighthouse, in their honor (above)!

    I grew up listening to them! GaGaGoAwayAway why dont you go away lol.. some ppl actually like to see the British/UK pop stuff on here. So if you dont like what Perez posts dont come on the website! You dont have to be rude and insult him.

    glad you're giving them some recognition perez! Grew up listening to them..still keep up to what they're releasing.. 14 years is great run for a boy band! They're all becoming dads… for the exception of Mark…They'll be missed.

    People need to realize, this is the WORLD WIDE web. If Perez didn't cater for those in Europe or wherever else and post about their interests too he would not be near as successful as he is today! You guys really make yourselves look ignorant when you comment like that. If you don't know a group why did you even bother waste your energy commenting on the story??
