Stop the presses! Irish pop vocal supergroup Westlife is back in Manila for twin concerts at the Smart Araneta Coliseum this week. 

A Wilbros Live Facebook post showed the boys from Dublin posing beside a private jet at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport. 

 

The band, whose hits include "Swear It Again", "If I Let You Go", "Flying Without Wings", "I Have a Dream", "Seasons in the Sun", "Fool Again", "Uptown Girl", "Unbreakable", "Queen of My Heart" and many more, will be performing at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on July 29 and 30. 

In an interview last February, the boys of Westlife - Shane Filan, Nicky Byrne, Mark Feehily and Kian Egan - said they decided to reunite due to huge fan demand. 

“We have so many great memories coming to Manila. We have so many fans there," said Filan.

"I think we have a special relationship with our fans as well all over Asia but the Philippines is definitely one of our fondest places that we’ve come to. We went there a lot in our career, probably one of the most we’ve come to. Singing all those old songs, we look forward to coming back there and doing that and share those memories again with the fans and also introduce our new album."

 

Westlife has sold over 45 million studio albums and 55 million records overall worldwide, while their official YouTube channel has received over a billion views.
