Goodbye: Westlife will say farewell to fans later this year

Westlife fans who were disappointed not to land tickets for their farewell concert will get a second chance to say goodbye to the boys, after it emerged the gig will be screened live in over 200 cinemas across the UK and Ireland.

Tickets for the screenings, which will also be available in other European countries, go on sale from 9am today (May 29).

Many fans were left disappointed after failing to secure tickets for the goodbye concert, which sees the boys travel around the country as a group one last time.

The final night of the tour, in Dublin on June 23, was particularly in demand, with tickets selling out in just five minutes, leaving thousands disappointed.

But now the cinema screenings – an event set up between BBC Worldwide, content provider By Experience, and Sony and Westlife – will give fans a second chance to see the boys as they bow out.

The group said: "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."
