Nicky is on the cover of the latest VIP Magazine Issue, on newsstands now! He gave an amazing interview to Bianca about his upcoming debut album (apparently set to be released on May 6th), Eurovision prep and much more! Massive thank you to Judith for sharing the scans:
Bianca: Nicky Byrne doing the Eurovision. I have to admit, I’m a bit surprised.
Nicky: Truth is, I’m really patriotic, and that’s not just a line. I love when Conor McGregor fights, love when Ireland plays football and I grew up watching the Eurovision. I am also a very competitive person. When I finished playing football at 19, and then Westlife started, I did lose that competitive side that I craved. I don’t know if we’ll ever win the Eurovision again, but sure look, we’ll give it a shot.
With Eurovision and Nicky’s debut album around the corner, it’s time we all work together to get ‘Sunlight’ on every radio station around the world… Specially Europe and the countries that are in the 2nd Semi-Finals, since they’re the ones that can vote for Nicky to make it to the Finals on May 14th!
Don’t know how to get your local radio station’s attention? I added a section to the fansite that will make things easier for everyone. It has a list of countries with radio stations for each of them – click here to visit! Here’s a video that explains everything:
So now that you’ve watched… Ready to spread the word about ‘Sunlight’? Let’s support Nicky!
Nicky’s album is getting nearer by the minute! Today he tweeted that he’s already written its Thank You’s and he’ll be sharing more details on the official release date very soon! Is it just me or this seems unreal? All I know is that I’ve never been more excited for anything in my life 🙂
Wrote my album Thank You's the other day .. My own album Thank You's !! #mad It's released in early May, will tell all soon!😝
Take a look at some of the famous faces that are looking forward to Freedom of Dublin Charity Fashion Show! You can join them at CityWest Hotel on Thursday April 7th. Tickets available here – bit.ly/1V0yNrP
April’s here! You know why that’s exciting? Because we’re only 1 MONTH away from Nicky’s debut album AND Eurovision! Are you guys ready?! 😀 And speaking of Eurovision, the running order for this year’s Semi-Finals will be released on Tuesday, 5th April!
I made a poll with 4 possible Pictures of the Month, and shared it on the fansite’s Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. The photo with the highest number of votes (47) was… Picture No. 4! Thank you all for voting.
Last but not least, I have created a new section: Fan Of The Month. If you gave us a visit last Sunday, you might’ve noticed a few Easter eggs on the posts and sidebar – That’s because I held a special Egg Hunt, and @Susmita_Shahnaz was the first person to find the egg containing the Fan of The Month sign!
Check out her profile by clicking on her picture 😉 (you can also apply to be the future Fan of The Month).
Last saturday, at half time of the St Kevin’s Boys vs Barcelona game in the Academy Cup, Nicky was interviewed on Near FM where he talked about the game and his career as a footballer. He played with St Kevin’s for a year before he went to Leeds United.
You can listen back to the full interview here:
And talking about football, Nicky tweeted another picture of the Soccer Aid Cup. We’re ready for history to be repeated #TeamROW!
With Eurovision and Nicky’s album release so near, I thought it would be a good idea to organise a special surprise for Nicky: A Fan Project. What does it consist of? It’s very simple… The idea is to get as many fans of his from around the world to participate. All the details are on the poster, so feel free to spread the word!
