On the next episode of Marty in the Shed, Westlife star Nicky Byrne tells Marty Morrissey about their 'mind-blowing' gigs at Croke Park last year. 

Speaking from his back garden in Malahide in Dublin, Nicky Byrne recalled the moment he returned to the stage with Shane Filan, Kian Egan and Mark Feehily after a seven-year break, telling Marty Morrissey "that everything went in their favour".

He said: "When we walked back last year and that screen opened in Croke Park, it was just... I think everything went in our favour. It was a Friday and Saturday night. The weather was glorious. When that screen opened, talk about taking your breath away. We had 83,000 people, not just at the concert, they were jumping, screaming hollering - it was so colourful.

"We opened the show with our brand new song which Ed Sheeran and Steve Mac had written for us. But that moment where we walked on stage in Croke Park last summer was mind-blowing."

Nicky also told Marty that he has been having zoom parties with his fellow Westlifers and their families during the Covid-19 restrictions. 

"When Zoom became the big thing we had a couple of business meetings because we had a huge tour that up to four weeks ago was still on. And then last week, we had a lovely Westlife let-your-hair down with the families, all the kids and partners," he said.
