The massively popular Irish boyband Westlife thanked their legions of fans during their final concert at Croke Park in Dublin on Saturday night.
RTE reports that 85,000 fans flocked to the famous park in Ireland’s capital for the group’s final performance. During the two-hour set, members of the group took time to thank fans for their dedication and support.
Group member Kian Egan said to 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."
Mark Feehily added that "For 14 years, 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.”
“Thanks so much. You're not just our fans, you are our friends and have been with us each step of the way."
Shane Filan said during Saturday’s show, "Last night was loud but this is unbelievable. Tonight is the loudest, best crowd we have ever had.”
"We will always be member[s] of Westlife but we won't be a band anymore.
"Thank you. I'll never forget this. These are times that will live in our lives forever."
