25 January 2012: Westlife have ruled out a farewell gig in their home town of Sligo in spite of a huge push from fans.
Band member Shane Filan dashed the hopes his home grown followers when he said no dates were scheduled for a gig there between now and their farewell concert in Croke Park this June.
"We all would love nothing more than to play Sligo on the tour !!...but no plans as yet unfortunately," he told fans via his Twitter page yesterday.
Despite three members of the band, Shane (32), Kian Egan (31) and Mark Feehily (31) being from Sligo, they have only played their hometown twice, once in Markievicz Park and once at Lissadell House.
And although Filan said singing in front of locals was a special memory for him, it looks like it will remain just that.
"Last time we played at Lissadell House in Sligo it was incredible !!! One of my favourite memories of Westlife .I'll never forget that show!" he said yesterday.
Last October Sligo Rovers backed calls for Westlife to hold their final concert in their stadium, The Showgrounds.
Sligo Rovers chairman Michael Toolan had suggested the lads save their last goodbye for those on their doorstep.
Mayor of Sligo Councillor Rosaleen O'Grady has also called for the band to hold a farewell concert in the town.
