Westlife cancel tour

Westlife have cancelled a promotional tour after band member Nicky Byrne’s father died suddenly.

Nicky has flown back to Ireland to be with his family after dad Nicky Snr. died from a suspected heart attack aged 60.

Nicky, 31, had been on a promotional tour with Westlife in London, but he has jetted home to comfort his mother Yvonne, sister Geraldine and brother Adam.

He was understood to be very close to his father, who used to be a musician and singer on the cabaret scene.
