LIFE WITHOUT BRIAN!

Grandma's fave band prepare to make their first appearance without beefy Bryan McFadden...

WESTLIFE are to make their first appearance as a four-piece.

As previously reported, the group have scaled down from a five-piece after Bryan McFadden decided to leave the group earlier this year to concentrate on his family.

The remaining members are scheduled to play at the Belfast Odyssey Arena this evening (March 29).

Westlife announced their split at a press conference in Dublin last month (March 9).

A statement read: “In the tradition of all great groups – Westlife are now a four piece.”

McFadden added: “It’s to do with me. It’s hard to juggle two lives when you’ve got a family. I want to concentrate on my family and being at home as much as I can.

“I haven’t really been able to commit 100% to Westlife and I haven’t been able to commit to my family so I kind of felt it was unfair on both.

“To be honest with you, I have absolutely nothing lined up. I’m not even gonna think about what I’m gonna do for a long time.”
