Be part of the incredible boy band phenomenon of Westlife
Westlife were yet another of Simon Cowell's boy band discoveries – thanks to his father, interestingly. It was Mr Cowell Senior who chose the band's breakthrough single, which was – as you'd expect, given the genre – a smooth and danceable pop track with multiple harmonies sung in fresh young voices. This became their blueprint, along with plenty of dreamy ballads, and it's still just what you can expect to encounter at a live gig when you buy or sell Westlife tickets on StubHub.
Up with the best-selling boy bands in history
Westlife have enjoyed massive success and their album sales have made them quite simply one of the best-selling boy bands that the world has ever seen. They're right up there with the big boys like Take That and American superstars New Kids On The Block or Backstreet Boys. This is quite astonishing when you take into account the fact that they didn't even break America! Not at all bad for some kids from Dublin. They've won a slew of Brit Awards and MTV Awards as well as a World Music Award, but their lack of penetration in the US market has meant that the Grammy remained elusive in the first 20 years of their existence. So if you're getting the idea that Westlife tickets are quite the items to pursue, you're absolutely right. Check here on the site whenever you hear that they're on tour or performing a once-off festival appearance near where you happen to live.
A UK chart record few others can match
To underline the massive popularity of Westlife in the UK, consider the fact that of the first 26 singles that this boy band phenomenon released, no fewer than 24 of them went to the Number Two spot in the pop singles charts, if not to the very top in many cases. They also broke the record for the most songs in the UK top-ten charts of any pop band in history during their astonishing career. If you're a fan you're probably not at all surprised by this, but we're sure even you weren't totally aware of just how massive they became. In fact, there are only two bands in history that have matched their incredible chart run in the UK, and they’re the Beatles and ABBA. So you can be very proud of your boys indeed if you were around at the time and loved them as only a teenage girl can. If that's the case, you'll be thrilled to find Westlife tickets on StubHub and get the chance to relive those amazing songs once again at a live gig.
