Westlife to split up after 2012 UK tour
Date Posted: 20/10/11
Westlife have announced that they will go their separate ways after completing their 2012 Greatest Hits tour.
Kian, Mark, Nicky and Shane said in a statement that the decision to split up was "entirely amicable" and they were looking forward to looking at new ventures after a well-earned rest.
A break will certainly be needed after they entertain their fans booking short breaks for their tour next year, which gets underway in Newcastle on Monday May 14th.
Gigs will be played in Liverpool, Cardiff, Birmingham and at London's O2 Arena among other venues in the UK.
"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," the boys added.
During their career, Westlife have racked up 26 top ten hits, 14 number one singles and 11 top five albums.
