Gutted Never Got Westlife Tickets 💔— Nik 👑 (@NicolaGeorgex) October 25, 2018
The band, made up of Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan, Mark Feehily, Shane Filan, recently told RTÉ 2FM's Jenny Greene they "honestly harbour no ill feeling" towards their former bandmate Brian McFadden who left the group in 2004.
"We honestly harbour no ill feeling towards Brian whatsoever," said Greene's 2FM co-host Byrne. "Never have done. I suppose when we first got back, when Westlife... When we first got back to talk about it [reuniting], we all discussed that we were always going to take Westlife off again where we left it in 2012.
"Brian walked away obviously in 2004 and what people forget is that it sometimes hurts us a little bit when you see the headlines that 'Simon Cowell wanted Brian' [for the reunion]."
"We never fell out with Brian and none of those things," Byrne continued. "But we did nine-and-a-half years without him and we genuinely harbour no ill feeling towards Brian and sometimes press and stuff and all these stories don't help the relationship, because there is no ill feeling from either way."
