WESTLIFE HAVE ANNOUNCED a second date at Croke Park next summer after tickets that went on sale this morning sold out in minutes. 

Tickets for the group’s comeback gig on 5 July 2019 went of general release this morning, reportedly selling out in seven minutes. 

Reacting to the news, lead singer Shane Filan tweeted:

First Croke Park gone in 7 mins !!!! I’m speechless. 

However, some people were not so lucky when it came to getting tickets, with a number of people complaining of technical difficulties getting in the way.
