Ryan Tubridy enjoys ‘bag of cans’ before seeing Westlife
Ryan Tubridy got into the pre-gig mood by enjoying a “bag of cans” ahead of Westlife’s second gig at Aviva Stadium on Saturday night.
The RTE host relaxed after another busy week of radio and public visits by heading to the home of Irish football to soak up Westlife’s return to Dublin.
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 gig, Ryan was supporting Galway in the All-Ireland semi-final. The tribesmen overcame champions Ulster with a solid second-half outing in a controversial game.
‘On the way to Westlife with the Tubridy women later, but before Lasdowne Road is Croke Park. Good luck Derry but Gaillimh abu,” Ryan said.
After watching his team win, Ryan enjoyed a “chic” bag of IPA cans before heading to the Aviva where he posed with fans for photos.
A snap of him surrounded by people asking for selfies, showed the Late Late host in high spirits moments before stepping into the ground.
After a night where the nostalgic act of the Sugababes kicked off, a fan was invited on stage to sing along with Westlife and many classic hits were sung, Ryan gave the highly anticipated event a rave review.
“And good evening from the Aviva. So much fun and every satisfied customer! Thanks guys, he said.
Speaking on his RTE Radio One show on Friday morning, Ryan admitted it would be his time to see Westlife in action, despite having known them for almost two decades.
“I’ve never seen Westlife in all its glory. I’ve been interviewing the guys for 20 years, like, 15 years. And I very kindly got an invitation to go. Myself and the girls from Tubridy – by that I mean my sisters and my mother – will be going 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 bet on who was going to be the first person to cry at the concert.
“We bet on who will bawl first…too much nostalgia,” she captioned the photo of herself in the Aviva with her friends.
