Westlife made their long-awaited debut at Wembley Stadium on Saturday night (August 6), and they did not disappoint.
The four-piece Irish band had been waiting for several years to perform at Wembley, following several delays due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Westlife put on a fantastic show for the 70,000 fans in attendance, including a surprisingly brilliant ABBA medley.
The band sang a medley of ABBA classics, including “Dancing Queen”, “Gimme Gimme Gimme”, and their 1999 Christmas number one single, “I Have a Dream”.
Watch the performance below:
It was the first time in the band’s 20-year history that they played at this iconic venue.
The group sang all of their greatest hits, including “Swear It Again”, “Flying Without Wings” and “You Raise Me Up”.
Shane, Nicky, Kian and Mark made their comeback to music in 2019, which saw their comeback album land at the top of the charts.
“Headlining Wembley Stadium is a dream come true for all of us. It was a once in a lifetime experience and it was amazing. The fans were amazing tonight. It was amazing. was the best of our lives,” the band said.
Mark added: “It was the biggest show we’ve ever done and it was magical. I never thought I’d be on stage at Wembley Stadium with the guys 20 years after we debuted. It’s emotional to think how far we have come. We were able to do this because we have the best fans in the world.
