23 June 2012: AN emotional Westlife took to the stage at Croker last night for their second last EVER show.
The unstoppable boyband appeared in front of 80,000 cheering fans at around 8.45pm in the first of their Farewell concerts.
As effigies of the famous foursome burned in the background, the Westlife lads kicked off with hit single What About Now, before launching straight into What Makes A Man.
Kian told the crowd: “For the four of us it’s the most amazing sight to be up here, I just want to say a huge welcome to each and every one of you.
“This is the biggest weekend of Westlife’s life and it’s pretty amazing, I’m getting emotional already.”
Shane, Nicky, Kian and Mark then took their adoring legions of followers on a tour of more than 20 of their greatest tunes as well as a medley of their favourite songs.
The spectacular stage, which took FOUR DAYS to erect, also featured an iron globe sculpture which launched the boyband kings out over their delighted screaming fans at one stage.
Synchronised dance moves to hits like Uptown Girl lifted the mood, as did a trip down memory lane for If I Let You Go.
Kian told screaming fans at the gig: “It’s all about the celebration of 14 years of amazing success, 14 No1 albums.
“Let’s hear Croke Park scream.”
Manager Louis Walsh was also on hand to enjoy the show.
But there was no sign of ex band member Brian McFadden who is believed to still be in Australia.
A source revealed: “Brian joining the lads onstage in Croker was never a runner — the boys felt they had come too far and it would be too strange for their last ever gigs.”
Shane earlier tweeted pics from the stadium, admitting he was overwhelmed.
He wrote: “The size of this place OMFG!!!!!! U ready Ireland ??!!!”
Thousands of loyal fans had started to line up outside the stadium at half four yesterday.
Superfan Debbie Byrne admitted: “I want to be up at the top for their farewell and am going to see them on both nights.
“It’s the end of an era and I wouldn’t be surprised if everyone in the audience is crying.”
Some of the band’s most dedicated followers flew in from abroad to see them perform for the last time.
Tonight, Shane, Nicky, Kian and Mark will take to the stage for the last time after warm-up acts Lawson, Jedward and The Wanted, left.
Following their two-hour set, the boys will be whisked to a secret spot in Dublin for a MASSIVE aftershow party.
And tonight’s Croke Park show is also being beamed via satellite to cinemas worldwide so fans everywhere can join in the last ever goodbye.
