Rianna's tour delight with Westlife
8:30am Sunday 24th June 2012 in News
A WOMAN from Grays who supported Westlife on their farewell tour has called the experience “unreal”.
Rianna Morris, 22, has been performing in arenas to sell-out crowds with girlband Vanquish.
It may be the end for Westlife, but for Rianna and Vanquish, the tour marks the start of their careers.
Rianna, who went to Little Thurrock Primary School and then Torrels before studying performing arts at Palmers, said: “It has gone so fast. We have had an amazing time meeting new fans and, of course, Westlife, who are so lovely.
“To tour with a band who have sold millions of albums has been a huge honour and we will keep the various bits of advice they have given the four of us forever.”
The girls are now set to start shooting a new video and concentrate on their new album.
Rianna said: “Getting to perform on a huge stage in front of thousands of people has been unreal. The Westlife crowd have been so lovely and we really appreciate all the kind messages.
“We are now excited to start the next part of our journey. We will be shooting our next video and doing loads more gigs around the country.”
The video for Vanquish’s debut single, The Harder You Love, has already notched up more than 30,000 views on YouTube.
The girls’ final gig was on Tuesday in Glasgow.
