Boyzone announce final album and tour - including Belfast date

Boyzone have confirmed they will release their final album later this year, followed by a farewell tour in which they will say goodbye to their fans across the UK and Ireland.

After 25 years together, the Irish band will release their final album Thank You & Goodnight on November 16.

They’ve also announced details of their 25th Anniversary and Farewell Arena Tour which kicks off in Belfast.

Ronan Keating, Shane Lynch, Mikey Graham, and Keith Duffy will perform at the SSE Arena on January, 23 2018.

They will also perform at Dublin’s 3Arena on January 24. 

Tickets go on sale from Friday 22 June at 9am from all usual outlets.

The lead track from the new album is titled I Can Dream and is a tribute to the late Boyzone singer Stephen Gately, who died in 2009.

Of their new album and farewell tour, Boyzone said: “When we started out as five young Dublin Northsiders, eager to face the world, we never imagined that we’d still have an army of fans some twenty-five years later.

"If you’d seen our famous first TV appearance on The Late Late Show, you’d probably be surprised too!

"But what followed was the stuff of dreams.

They continued: "We’ve had some tough times too. The loss of Stephen left scars that we will carry as a band forever.

"We were immensely touched by all the tributes and messages of support that helped us through the dark days. Stephen was our brother and will always be at the very the heart of Boyzone.

"Twenty-five years is a long time. We’re certainly not boys anymore, and we all feel that we should now call time on our lives together as Boyzone and go out on a real high."
