Fans of the Irish band Westlife will be thrilled to know that the members are coming together to entertain us with good music after being on hiatus for years. 

It's official

The Irish Sun has confirmed that the band will be coming together. However, minus one beloved member – Brian McFadden. It was also revealed that they will be managed by Universal, and tour dates are currently in the works.

A source reportedly said:

It’s signed, sealed and delivered and it’s definitely happening  and it absolutely does not include Brian McFadden.

The insider also told The Irish Sun that the band will return to the studio to record new songs.

Brian previously told The Irish Sun that one of his ex-bandmate was causing him to lose out on a deal with Westlife because they just could not forgive him for quitting years ago.

In the April 2018 interview, he said that the only thing holding back a reunion was "ego", saying that the rest of the band turned down a massive deal from Simon Cowell and refused to rebuild the band. 

How does that make me feel? It makes me pretty upset because I didn’t realise they still had those feelings towards me.

Well, it looks like the rest of the band is going right ahead without Brian, and with a different label.

Some of their best hits

The award-winning band began making waves in December of 2000. They topped charts and gained millions of adoring fans over the years. 

In 2004, Brian McFadden shocked fans when he announced he was leaving the band to spend more time with his family. The rest of the group – Shane Filan, Kian Egan, and Mark Feehily – continued on until October of 2011, when they announced their amicable split.

Fans are excited about the reunion

Following the confirmation of Westlife's comeback, several of their fans have taken to social media to express their excitement. 

We do hope this will reignite their musical career and we'll hear some amazing music from this talented band.
