Westlife's Markus Feehily Withdraws From Current UK And Ireland Tour Due To Illness

Tuesday, 29 November 2022 Written by Laura Johnson

Westlife's Markus Feehily (pictured second from the right) has withdrawn from the group's current UK and Ireland tour due to illness.

The Irish vocalist has been diagnosed with pneumonia and is currently receiving treatment in hospital. Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan and Shane Filan will continue The Wild Dreams Tour across the UK and Ireland this winter, with the next stop at Liverpool's M&S Bank Arena tomorrow (November 30). The trek shares its name with their latest album, released in 2021.

Breaking the news via social media, Feehily said:

"Hey to all the fans, Mark here!

"Firstly, I'd like to say a sincere thank you to everybody for sending their love and get well soon messages - it means so much. I really was gutted to miss the weekend shows in Newcastle but I started to feel quite unwell on Friday and the doctors have confirmed that it's a bout of Pneumonia. I know it's scary when you first hear the word 'Pneumonia' but thankfully I got to the doctor and hospital very quickly and got on the antibiotics as soon as possible, so everything is currently under control.

"I have been informed that the quickest way to recovery is to rest and continue the antibiotics. I'm feeling a bit better everyday. The nurses and doctors are taking amazing care of me so it should be all over in no time. This does however mean missing more gigs which is horrible but I'll be back on stage as soon as I get the all clear. Until then, Nicky, Shane and Kian will continue to fly the Westlife flag high for all of us. Please scream even louder than usual for those three legends in my absence!

"Sending love to you all, I hope to see you back on the road very very soon! Mark xx."
