Seeing the lads together on that stage tonight was so emotional. I bawled my eyes out 7 years ago in Croke Park, heartbroken and sad it was the end. Tonight was all happy tears. I’m just so happy they’re back❤️ #TheTwentyTour #Westlife— Margrete (@NBCrazyFan) May 22, 2019

There were reports that a man got down on one knee and popped the big question to his girlfriend during Westlife's performance of Queen Of My Heart. Was this you? Get in touch at email@example.com.
The Twenty Tour sees the boy band back from their hiatus with signature cheesy dance moves, classic hits and diamonte-trimmed outfits.
Wednesday marked the start of a phenomenal five-night run at the SSE Arena which takes Westlife to a record-breaking total of 65 shows in Belfast.
