To all those who grew up in the good old 90s and still wear #90skids like a badge of honour, I have some breaking news for you:
You’re not that young anymore.
In fact, remember these young, handsome faces?
Well, this is what those boys look like now:
Excuse me??? What???
Yes, 90s not-kids-anymore, that’s one of your childhood favourites, Westlife, you’re looking at.

Lest you’ve forgotten, earlier this year on 31 January 2019, Westlife came to Singapore for an exclusive Q&A with fans, organised by Universal Music Singapore. Following which, they announced an Asian tour and promised to include Singapore as one of their stops.
A promise they have delivered, obviously.
Westlife for People Whose IC Number Starts with T
Westlife is an Irish pop vocal group that debuted in 1998 and was immensely popular as part of the boyband wave in the late 90s and early 2000s, together with some bands like some Michael learning something or some boys from backstreet.
Their first single, “Swear it Again”, launched them to super stardom, followed by their second, “If I Let You Go”. Both songs earned them the title of the first boyband to hit the No. 1 in the charts with its first two singles. Their third released single, “Flying Without Wings” was another chart topper.
Together with their other top hits like “My Love”, “Fool Again” and “I Lay My Love on You”, Westlife remains today a 90s boyband staple, with their songs immediately triggering a bout of nostalgia and sing-alongs.
They, however, disbanded in 2012 and reunited 6 years later in October 2018.
The reunion did not include their 5th member Brian McFadden, who left the band in 2004.
On 10 January 2019, they released their first new single in 8 years,”Hello My Love”, written by Ed Sheeran and Steve Mac.
Before 2019, Westlife has hit Singapore’s shores 4 times in total, in 2000, 2001, 2006 and 2011.
90s Bands Live in Singapore This Year
It’s the year for the 90s, because besides Westlife, here are the other 90s bands that have come or are coming to Singapore this year:
Nickelback performed at Zepp @ BIGBOX on 20 February 2019.
Blue also performed at ZEPP@BIGBOX just two weeks ago on 2 March 2019.
Maroon 5, who are still ruling the charts till today, performed at the National Stadium on 7 March 2019.
Muse will be peforming at F1 this year alongside Cardi B, Hans Zimmer, Fat Boy Slim, Larkin Poe, Toots, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and the Maytals.
Now we’re just waiting for Michael to learn how to rock, because 90s isn’t 90s without them.
