Final ever Westlife show to be screened in cinemas live

By | Published on Tuesday 29 May 2012


The final ever concert by Westlife will be beamed live into cinemas across the world (mainly in the UK and Ireland admittedly, but some cinemas in South Africa, Australia and various other European countries too), I think so representatives from the United Nations can check for certain that they really actually do bid the world farewell once and for all, as long promised.

BBC Worldwide and a company called By Experience will film and transmit the concert, which takes place at Dublin’s Croke Park on 23 Jun. Tickets for the final show sold out within five minutes. Tickets for seats at those cinemas already confirmed to screen the live broadcast will go on sale today, with more cinemas to be confirmed in due course.

Say the group in perfect unison, presumably from four neatly aligned stools: “It is bound to be a hugely emotional night and we expect to have tears in our eyes for nearly every song. The fact that the show will be beamed to our fans in cinemas around the world only adds to our excitement”.
