The announcement of Boyzone’s forthcoming ‘Thank You & Goodnight’ farewell tour has been greeted with a phenomenal reaction by their fans. Four arena shows have sold-out months in advance, while ticket sales are also strong for the rest of the tour’s shows.
Now Boyzone extend their invitation to “one final celebration of twenty-five years of Boyzone and our journey together” with the addition of seven extra shows. The full UK and Ireland tour dates are:
After six UK #1 singles, five UK #1 albums and 25 years together, Boyzone will release their final album ‘Thank You & Goodnight’ on November 16th.
They launched the album by sharing a very special tribute to Stephen Gately in the shape of ‘I Can Dream’, which they reworked after finding a demo that he recorded for a solo album. Most recently, they released ‘Because’, which was written by their friend Ed Sheeran. It’s an emotive and dramatic love song which finds Boyzone at their anthemic arena-filling best.
In addition to Ed Sheeran, the twelve-track album finds Boyzone collaborating with another special guest songwriter in the shape of Gary Barlow on ‘Love’. Producers on the album include John Shanks (Take That, Westlife), Xenomania’s Toby Scott, young Swedish hitmakers Goldfingers and Steve Soloman (James Arthur, Jason Mraz).
