Westlife regret choosing 'Lighthouse' as their farewell single
Westlife's Nicky Byrne has revealed his disappointment at the chart position of the group's farewell single, 'Lighthouse'.
The stars, who recently announced that they are calling it a day in 2012, released the Gary Barlow-penned track as their final single, but regret their decision as it only managed to get to No.32 in the UK Top 40 and has now been named as the group's only non-Top Ten single.
"It’s disappointing as we’ve never had a chart position that bad. Our fans instead bought tickets for our last tour next May. 'Beautiful World', which Mark wrote, would have been better. However, as we’re splitting up, whether it charted at No 1 or No 100, it makes no difference to the next six months for us.”
The lads are set to take their Greatest Hits Tour on the road next June and once the run is finished they will put down the mics for good.
