Boyzone's FINAL Birmingham Show!
Boyzone's Final Five sees the guys play five select venues across the UK as the finale to their farewell tour. Here's what to expect from the Boyz as they play their LAST EVER show here in Birmingham!
We could spend hours and hours talking not only about the band themselves, but the about the final show Boyzone are going to deliver to Birmingham in just under a weeks' time. However, don't take our word for it, here's what the lads had to say on their twenty five year career and about their last ever shows...
"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. We've played stadiums and arenas all over the world, released six albums, and had almost two-dozen hits. We really can't put into words just how much you, the fans, have supported us along the way. Without that support, we would have never achieved what we have, and for that we're eternally grateful.
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.
This November we will be releasing our final album, 'Thank You & Goodnight'. We've recorded twelve brand new tracks that we hope you'll enjoy listening to as much as we've enjoyed making them.
We're especially excited to share a very special tribute to Stephen in the shape of a new song, 'I Can Dream.' We came across a demo that he originally recorded for his solo album in 2002 and we've had the opportunity to re-work the song and add our harmonies alongside his lead vocal. It was a bittersweet experience to hear all our voices together again. It's the closest the five of us will ever get to being in a room together again making music.
And we're also eager to invite you all to one final celebration of twenty-five years of Boyzone and our journey together. We would love for you to raise the roof one last time as we head out on our farewell UK and Ireland arena tour.
We know this love's forever. That's all that matters, no matter what..."
I'm not crying, you're crying.
Obviously it's going to a super emotional night watching the Boyz perform here in Birmingham, but it's bitter-sweet, because we literally cannot wait for Tuesday to roll round as we know it's going to be an unforgettable show and an unforgettable evening. Bring the tissues, bring your cameras and most importantly, bring your voices as we want to give Ronan, Keith, Mikey and Shane the send off they deserve!
