Westlife have added another Irish date to their upcoming tour.
The band announced earlier this month that they were reuniting, and heading on a UK & Ireland tour this summer.
Originally Shane Filan, Mark Feehily, Kian Egan and Nicky Byrne were set to play Croke Park on the 5th of July and two nights in Belfast’s SSE Arena on May 25th and 26th.
However, due to demand, the boys are set to add a third night to their Belfast stint.
The lads will now perform a third night on May 27th.

Tickets for the tour go on sale next Thursday, October 25 at 9am with presale having started on Tuesday.
The foursome kicked off their reunion yesterday, on what was their first official day back at work as Westlife.
They held two press conferences, one in Dublin and one in Belfast.
Speaking at the event, the boys opened up about why Brian McFadden wasn’t part of the revival.
The way we look at it we finished the band as a four-piece, we were together for over eight years after he left, so a lot longer than when we were with Brian,” Shane explained.
“He decided to leave the band in 2004 so for us we were always a four-piece after that. Brian left the band fifteen years ago y’know,” he added.
Mark also added that it just feels right as a foursome.
“I don’t think we feel like anybody’s missing here today,” he said.
“And that’s not in any bad way, that’s just what Westlife is to us now.”
