Westlife's Shane Filan has shared an adorable throwback picture of himself standing on the pitch of Croke Park, just a week after the band announced that they would be bringing their reunion tour to the venue.

Filan and his bandmates delighted fans with the news that they will take to the stage at Dublin's Croke Park next year - the same venue that played host to their farewell shows in 2012.

The Sligo singer is clearly excited about returning to the iconic venue, and took to social media to share a throwback snap from when he was seven years old, standing alongside his brothers on the playing field.

"With my 3 brothers Peter,Finbarr & Liam 32 years ago in Croke Park! By the look on my face I was dreaming about it then."

Westlife's Twenty Tour, which celebrates the group's 20th anniversary, will kick off in Belfast on Friday, May 24, with the tour concluding in Croke Park on Friday, July 5.
