Westlife are set to mark their big comeback with a massive reunion concert in Croke Park early next summer.

According to the Irish Sun, the foursome will perform at the iconic stadium, seven years after they last performed there.

However, sources say the bandmates won’t make an official announcement until next month, as they continue to dodge questions about the reunion on social media.

Meanwhile, the newspaper has also reported that a planned TV documentary, which would have followed the band getting ready for their comeback, has been axed due to a lack of filming time.

Simon Cowell was reportedly behind the brand’s the idea, but unfortunately they’ve failed to make it work.

An industry insider said: “It was a similar fly-on-the-wall doc to the one Take That made when they reformed in 2005.”

“But Simon wanted the Westlife doc to air before tickets went on sale for the reunion tour but there wasn’t enough time to shoot anything before the announcement next month.”

The news comes after it was reported that Westlife have signed with Universal, snubbing Simon Cowell’s label Syco.

Despite this, insiders say the band still have a good relationship with Simon, which could land them a slot on The X Factor as a guest act.

A source said: “There was no acrimony after the lads found another deal with label Universal music. Simon respects that they came to him first.”
