Keith Duffy says: â€œItâ€™s incredible to see what started as a conversation one evening between Brian & I, develop into something so exciting. After announcing the UK & Ireland tour, we had loads of requests from international territories to come and visit. It seemed like a bit of a pipedream at first, but after some great conversations with Hilton Hotels & Resorts we managed to adapt the tour to take it to venues worldwide. Itâ€™ll be amazing to reconnect with our international fans once again!â€
Brian McFadden says: â€œWeâ€™re over the moon at the reaction to the Boyzlife tour, and weâ€™re beyond excited to take the tour worldwide. Keith and I have always been great friends and weâ€™ve wanted to work together for quite a while now. With the amount of stories between us we knew it would make for a great live show, mixed in with a few songs and some fun interaction with our international fans â€“ who have always been amazing.â€
Kate Dixon, Director of Regional Marketing, UK & Ireland says: â€œWe are thrilled to be partnering with Boyzlife for their 30-date UK, Ireland and international tour in October, November and December. Having sold out the UK tour within hours, weâ€™re delighted to have Keith and Brian perform additional dates at our international venues - itâ€™s set to be a fantastic experience for the fans and we look forward to welcoming them to Hilton Hotels & Resorts across the world."
Both Boyzone and Westlife are two of the most successful boybands of all time to come out of Ireland and the UK.
During Brianâ€™s time in Westlife the band secured a record 7 straight Number 1 singles, 12 UK & Ireland Number 1 singles in total, 4 Number 1 Albums, x3 Record of the Year Awards, x2 MTV Europe Music Award, x1 Brit Award and countless others. Sales during this time reached in excess of 30 million. Brianâ€™s debut solo single â€˜Real To Meâ€™ topped the charts in the UK, Ireland and across Europe,
becoming one of the biggest radio airplay hits that year across the continent. Brian followed this up with a further three solo Number 1 singles and platinum status in Australia where he resided.
As a member of Boyzone, Keith has enjoyed incredible success, with the band being Europeâ€™s most successful boyband during the second half of the 1990â€™s and the success has continued for many years. Achieving 6 UK Number 1 singles - with 16 of their first 17 singles going Top 5 in the UK Charts - it cemented Boyzone as the first Irish group to top the UK charts so regularly. 5 Number 1 albums were secured and over 25 million records sold worldwide.
