Biography

There are at least two acts under the name Boyzone:

1) Boyzone are an Irish boy band that had popular mainstream success during the 1990s. The group were most successful in Ireland, the UK, Australia and New Zealand; they also had differing levels of success in parts of Europe. The group have released six #1 UK hit singles and four #1 albums, with sales approaching 30 million records as of 2008. They made a comeback in 2007, originally with the intention of just touring but Ronan Keating confirmed in an interview that they wanted to “outdo Take That” in terms of a successful reunion.

Boyzone were put together in 1993 by Louis Walsh who is also known for managing Johnny Logan and Westlife . Before even recording any material they made a now infamous appearance on RTÉ’s The Late Late Show. Their first album Said and Done was released in 1995 and the following two studio albums in 1996 and 1998. Seven compilation albums have been released, the latest being B-Sides & Rarities in October 2008. Singer Stephen Gately died on 10 October 2009 at the age of 33.

Despite rumours of them cancelling the new album Keating, denied these allegations and revealed that Boyzone would release a new album as a tribute to Gately in 2010 which included two new songs that were sung by Stephen Gately before his death.

A song was written by singer-songwriter Mika who has also claimed that the new song he wrote for Boyzone is the last one which will feature Stephen Gately’s vocals, released on their fourth studio album on 8 March 2010.
