The former Westlife star is making a bid to be a solo star with a special London gig

Westlife star Mark Feehily is finally making a return to music -  four years after the band split.

The Sligo native will be playing an intimate one off performance at Scala music venue in London to around 1500 people on March 4 next year.

The gig will be the first time Mark has performed on stage since Westlife split in 2012 - and previously the famous club has hosted stars like Coldplay, The Killers and The Foo Fighters.

The Flying Without Wings singer has been busy recording a solo album which will feature a soulful sound and will be highly autobiographical.

He said: "It's always more daunting to write and perform songs that are autobiographical. I tend to write more when I'm feeling down or when something bad happens as it can be the only way to express myself."


He added: "I'm really looking forward to sharing the new songs with the fans."

Fans at the live performance will be treated to some of Mark's new hits which he has been working on with some of the UK's top music stars.

"There's a lot to be said for working with some of the most successful producers in the business," he said.

"But at the same time there's a real excitement that comes from working with some of the hottest up and coming talents."
