Ryan Tubridy Enjoys ‘Bag of Cans’ Before Seeing Westlife
Ryan Tubridy got into the pre-gig mood by enjoying a ‘bag of cans’ before Westlife’s second Aviva Stadium concert on Saturday night.
The RTE host unwinded after another busy week of radio and visiting the public by heading to the home of Irish football to soak in Westlife’s Dublin homecoming.
After wowing fans on Friday night, Shane, Nicky, Kian and Mark gave it their all on the second date of their Wild Dreams tour.
Prior to heading to the concert, Ryan was supporting Galway in the All-Ireland semi-final. The tribesmen overcame the Ulster champions with a strong second-half outing in a controversial game.
‘Heading to Westlife with the Tubridy women later, but before Lasdowne Road it’s Croke Park. Good luck Derry but Gaillimh abu, ‘Ryan said.
After watching his team win, Ryan enjoyed a ‘classy’ bag of IPA cans before making his way down to the Aviva where he posed with fans for photos.
One snap of him surrounded by people asking for selfies, showed the Late Late host in good spirits moments before entering the ground.
Following a night where the nostalgic act the Sugababes opened, a fan was invited on stage to sing with Westlife and plenty of classic hits were belted out, Ryan gave the highly-anticpated event a glowing review.
‘And it’s goodnight from the Aviva. So much fun and every customer satisfied! Thanks fellas, ‘he said.
Speaking on his RTE Radio One show on Friday morning, Ryan admitted that it was going to be his time seeing Westlife in action, despite knowing them for nearly two decades.
‘I’ve never seen Westlife in all their finery. I’ve been interviewing the lads for 20 years, thereabouts, 15 years. And I very kindly got an invitation to go. Myself and the Tubridy gals – by that I mean my sisters and mother – will be heading to the Aviva tomorrow night. I’m very excited, ‘he said.
It was a star-studded occasion, with 2FM Breakfast presenter Doireann Garrihy joking that she and her friends had a bet over who was going to be the first person to cry at the gig.
‘We’ve got a bet on who will bawl first… too much nostalgia,’ she captioned the picture of her in the Aviva with her friends.
