Irish pop super stars, Westlife have revealed plans for a massive concert in Dublin's Croke Park next year.

The boys sold out a record breaking 13-night stint in the Point last June and see the stadium gig as the next logical step.

According to reports in the Irish press, the band are not performing at this year's Slane concert as castle owner Lord Henry Mountcharles would not have them.

Westlife manager, Louis Walsh, has rubbished this claim. He said: "We'll be playing Croke Park next year and it is a far better venue than a field in Meath. Anyway, I don't know why Mountcharles is going on about which acts he will and won't have at Slane. The whole Slane event is organised by the promoters,MCD. He just receives a fee for his field."

Mountcharles has said: "I have no time for manufactured groups at all."

He was more than happy, however, to have Westlife member Bryan McFadden pay for the use of his castle last year for his wedding to singer-turned-TV presenter Kerry Katona.

Currently in the US on their second attempt at breaking the American charts, the band have had positive news as their single, World of Our Own, has had extensive play on nationwide radio.

They are also due to team up with Beyonce and Solange Knowles of Destiny's Child in San Diego for the music festival Blockbuster Teenfest.
