26 June 2012: Westlife signed off in style at the weekend in front of 170,000 fans over a couple of nights at Croke Park. Fans were close to coronaries as the four appeared to be burned alive on stage, but it was merely an illusion and the real Westlife soon appeared unscathed to wow their audience with a greatest hits show at the end of a long farewell.
There was no hint of the 'irreparable rift' claimed in some newspapers after the band announced they were going their separate ways after 14 years. Despite their last single 'Lighthouse' only charting at number 33, Westlife chalked up 14 UK number ones and sold over 45 million records worldwide in a career that nobody could have foreseen in their boyband early days. Their record of consecutive number ones was only topped by Elvis and The Beatles and will probably never be beaten, given that downloads and physical sales are now combined in determining chart positions. Westlife's one regret will surely be that they never really cracked the US market. 'Flying Without Wings' was a number 2 hit in the Billboard charts, not for the Irish band but for American Idol Season 2 winner Ruben Studdard who released it as his debut single. Shane Filan, Mark Feehily, Kian Egan, and Nicky Byrne vow they will never reunite but I would take that with a pinch of salt: history has many examples of such vows broken as the desire for a few quick bucks and another 15 minutes in the spotlight becomes just too great to ignore.
