After a quarter of a century together, the iconic Boyzone has announced it’s time to say goodnight, with their farewell tour reaching Melbourne on Wednesday 3 April, 2019.
Boyzone were one of the most endearing groups to emerge from the “boy band” music sphere and 90’s commercial pop. They also happen to be one of the most successful bands in Ireland and the UK. The group have sold 25 million albums worldwide, played stadiums & arenas all over the world, went onto release six albums and had almost two-dozen hits. Boyzone have seen great success in Australia over the years as well where their hit singles became staples at pop radio in the 90’s – songs such as Picture Of You, No Matter What, Love Me For A Reason and Father & Son.
In conjunction with the tour, Boyzone have just released their final album Thank You & Goodnight last Friday though Warner Music Australia. The album finds them collaborating with some very special guest songwriters in the shape of Ed Sheeran (Because) and Gary Barlow (Love). Producers on the album include Xenomania’s Toby Scott, John Shanks (Take That, Westlife), young Swedish hitmakers Goldfingers and Steve Soloman (James Arthur, Jason Mraz). The album features 12 brand new tracks and the band are excited to share a very special tribute to Stephen Gately in the shape of a new song I Can Dream.
Supporting Boyzone will be fellow singer / songwriter, Brian McFadden, who began his singing career as a member of Westlife in 1998. He left the group in 2004 to pursue his solo career which saw him release his debut album Irish Son with the first single reaching No.1 in the UK. In 2005, his third single Almost Here became another No.1 UK hit and went platinum.
