Boyzone to reunite for 25th anniversary tour

Music 30/05/2017

Boyzone will be hitting the road on a 25th anniversary tour in 2018, the group has officially announced.

Ronan Keating will be part of the tour, despite juggling his solo career and welcoming a baby boy just last month.

The group uploaded a photo of members Keith Duffy, Shane Lynch and Mikey Graham - along with Keating - on Instagram with the announcement.

"[Next year] will see Boyzone celebrate their 25th anniversary! That's something that Ronan, Keith, Mikey and Shane are incredibly proud of," reads the band's post.

"Plans are being hatched for new music and lots of touring throughout the year. But next year still seems a long way off, so in case you can't wait, the Boyz are hitting the road for some exclusive UK shows later this [northern] summer."

Further details on the concerts will be announced soon.

Late Boyzone member Stephen Gately died on October 10, 2009 of natural causes while on his holiday in the Spanish island of Majorca with his civil partner, Andrew Cowles.
