Manbands ready for chart showdown of the year
PREPARE for the biggest chart showdown of the year - as "manbands" WESTLIFE and TAKE THAT go head to head.
TT are in New York putting the finishing touches to new album Circus Live due out on November 30. Westlife have spent a year working on their surprise new venture.
A Westlife insider told me: "Instead of ballads there will be a rockier feel. They are confident they can beat Take That."
Last time the bands went head to head was in December 2006 when Westlife's The Love Album was knocked off No.1 by Take That's comeback album Beautiful World.
At the time TT's Gary Barlow said the Irish lads, including Kian Egan, wouldn't exist without them.
A music industry insider told me: "This could get messy."
May the best band win...
