Boyzone to mark 20th anniversary with album and tour
Irish boyband Boyzone are planning a special album and tour next year to mark their 20th anniversary in music.
The group formed after responding to an advertisement hunting for stars in 1993, and their debut album, Said and Done, hit shelves the following year.
The band took time out in the 2000s, but was left devastated when singer Stephen Gately died in 2009, five months before their comeback record Brother was released.
They embarked on a tour in honour of Gately, and group member Keith Duffy reveals the four-piece is plotting another trek, as well as an album, in recognition of their 20 years in the spotlight.
He tells The Sun newspaper, "We've plans in place for a tour and an album next year for the 20th anniversary - that's if people want to come and see us!
"We've a very loyal fanbase that always come in their thousands. It's a nice set-up. We never broke up, so we can take time out to do our own thing, and then get back together when it suits."
