Westlife’s Kian Egan: We want fans to have happy memories of us28/11/2011 18:13
Pop heartthrob says fans shouldn’t be too sad when the tour is over and should think of the good times
IT’S going to be an emotional rollercoaster.
But Westlife’s Kian Egan says fans left devastated over their split should try and focus on how amazing their 14-year career has been.
Speaking in our exclusive interview, the heartthrob told us they want fans to walk away from their 2012 tour with “happy memories,” and not in floods of tears.
“[We want the tour to give fans] happy memories,” he told us.
“If a fan is that devastated that we’ve broken up, then it means they’ve been there from the start and it will be as devastating for them as it is for us.
“But don’t look back on the last 14 years as if they haven’t existed, look back on the last 14 years for how great they’ve been.
“It’s been an amazing time,” he said. “[But] not everything lasts forever. Take the positive don’t take the negative. That’s what we’re trying to do.”
And it seems he and the rest of the boys – including Nicky Byrne, Mark Feehily and Shane Filan – are going ALL out to give their fans the best-ever farewell tour imaginable.
“[Fans should] look forward to every hit,” Kian told us. “And expect the best show we’ve ever done.
“You’ll see four guys on that stage with so much passion, so much love for what we do and for the fans, who’ve given us what they’ve given us. We want to give amazing things.”
Westlife’s Greatest Hits album is out now.
