Westlife announce Croke Park show

The boys will be back in town next June.

Westlife have announced a return trip to Croke Park on June 5 with JLS supporting.

Tickets, which one imagines will end up in more than a few Christmas stockings, go on sale at 8am on Friday December 11.

Meanwhile, the boys’ Where We Are album has been kept off the Irish top spot by Susan Boyle’s I Dreamed A Dream. The second highest new entry this week is Andrea Bocelli’s My Christmas at number eight.

Turnaround

There comes a time in the life of any manufactured pop band worth their salt when they try and throw off their shackles and break the mould that has been created for them. It may involve a radical change of image, an attempt to start writing their own songs or even a management coup. The results are often glorious but short lived – Take That went bonkers on Never Forget and then promptly disintegrated; the Spice Girls dumped Fuller, lost Geri, prospered and then released a disastrous third – and it would appear final – album. From there, it’s solo careers for some, back to oblivion for others. The theory that it’s better to burn out than to fade away remains an attractive one. But what about another objective: to mature into genuine artistic relevance of the kind achieved by the Four Tops or The Temptations? Now on their fifth album and with a greatest hits behind them, surely the odds are on Westlife if not executing an abrupt volte face, then at least tinkering with the formula a little bit?
