Nicky Byrne addresses Westlife reunion rumours

Nicky Byrne has set the record straight on those Westlife reunion rumours.

There was speculation recently that the band were getting back together, so EVOKE.ie sat down with Nicky to get the inside scoop.

Firstly, it appears that there are no immediate plans for Nicky to rejoin Kian Egan, Mark Feehily and Shane Filan on stage.

‘There is no truth in it! The thing about it is the four of us haven’t been in a room together since Jodi’s [Kian’s wife] mum’s funeral,’ he said.

‘That was the last time we spoke properly as a band, if you want to call it that.’

But there was some good news for fans of the boyband as Nicky was enthusiastic about the idea of the boys getting back together at some point.

‘I’d love to do a Westlife reunion as I hope would the other lads,’ the 2FM presenter said.

‘I wouldn’t love to do it now as I’ve got so much going on and I’m sure the other boys are the same.

‘So until we sit in a room and say what to you want to do? We don’t have a record deal but I’ve already heard labels that are interested.’

‘But we have discuss what kind of music we want to make. A big Westlife ballad, where does that sit with the current songs on radio? Where do we fit?

‘Not that we can’t fit, you look at Take That, they come out with great songs. That’s what I feel we would need to do.

‘I’d love to see all the fans again. I’d need to consider what would happen to the radio, can I take a sabbatical.’

‘I don’t know if we know when the right time for a reunion would be,’ the Dancing with the Stars host admitted.

‘I’d love to put a DVD on of a Westlife show with the four of us and have a few beers and laugh in a good way or what it used to be like!’

Nicky was chatting to us at the National Maternity Hospital Foundation coffee morning at Holles Street to celebrate World Prematurity Day on Friday 17th November 2017 supported by WaterWipes.

Drogheda based Irish Company WaterWipes has produced special “donate packs” for Prematurity Awareness Month. For every 60 pack sold, WaterWipes will donate 50c to the NMH Foundation and this will add to the total donation of €40,000 WaterWipes will make this year.

    2fm Xmas Ball Raises €460,000!

    This year’s 2fm Xmas Ball to support ISPCC Childline was a total success! Raising €10,000 more euros than last year; they donated a total of €460,000! Congratulations to everyone involved! Nicky was amongst the presenters of the night, and he got the crowd cheering when he asked for his famous Mexican wave. If you watch the videos, you’ll notice that his voice wasn’t 100% there, so I want to wish him a very speedy recovery.
