Boyzone confirm summer shows ahead of 25th anniversary celebrations
Irish group Boyzone have confirmed they will be performing together this summer before releasing new music and going on tour to celebrate their 25th anniversary in 2018.
The announcement was made via social media on Monday, telling fans "plans are being hatched" for new music and shows throughout next year.
But ahead of that, Ronan Keating, Mikey Graham, Keith Duffy and Shane Lynch will also be performing a number of gigs this summer, with dates and venues yet to be confirmed.
Boyzone gained fame across the UK and Ireland in 1994 following the release of their second single Love Me For A Reason, which reached number 1 in the charts.
