Description:Tens of thousands of fans are expected to come over the weekend, and more of the same is anticipated on Saturday.
On Friday night, Liam Barry from Goldbergs summed up the feelings of a large number of individuals well.
When Cork was bathing in bright sunshine and vibrating with the excitement of tens of thousands of concertgoers arriving on Páirc U Chaoimh to witness Westlife.
He said, “Cork is a city that hums with the excitement of tens of thousands of concertgoers converging on it to watch Westlife.”
Even before the concert started yesterday, the weather made it feel like a dream. The boy band is playing at Leeside for two nights as part of their Wild Dreams Tour,
The way the weather was acting made me seem like I was already in a dream, and that was before the event even started.
After Emeli Sandé and Wild Youth’s opening performances, the audience went wild for Westlife’s “Starlight.”
Tens of thousands of supporters, including Louis Walsh, attended the gathering, and a similar number is expected on Saturday night.
An event that seems to be of great significance has drawn viewers from as far away as Germany, Switzerland, and Austria.
And a large number of people from the Netherlands, who have come to join the already massive gathering of local Corkonians.
