Westlife, who has a huge following in the UK, has sold over 55 million records.

This week, Feehily said that securing a Wembley gig nearly 25 years into their musical career “blows our minds a bit”.

He told ITV’s This Morning on Friday: “I think being able to play concerts like this at Wembley Stadium is something we’ve dreamed of since we were boys and actually be at it. here now, I think for us, that makes a lot of sense, almost 25 years into our careers to be playing at sold-out Wembley Stadium.”

Filan agreed that finally getting to play Wembley was a “huge achievement” for the group, saying: “We’ve played stadiums around the world but Wembley Stadium is probably the most famous stadium in the world. world.

“And I suppose once you play the stadium you’re on the very elite list of people who are lucky enough to play it and I’m obviously thinking of bands like Queen and people like that.

“It is incredible and we are very proud of that.

“It’s a huge achievement for us.”

The concert was also streamed live in cinemas across the UK and #westlifeincinemas were trending on Twitter.
