Boyzone to bring 'Thank You & Goodnight' tour to NZ

Published: Tue 20 Nov 2018 09:57 AM
After a quarter of a century together, the iconic Boyzone recently announced it’s time to say goodnight as they prepare for their farewell tour of the UK. Kiwi fans will now get a chance to say goodbye to them in April 2019 when the Irish superstars hit our shores.
Boyzone were one of the most endearing groups to emerge from the “boy band” music sphere and 90’s commercial pop. They also happen to be one of the most successful bands in Ireland and the UK. The group have sold 25 million albums worldwide, played stadiums & arenas all over the world, went onto release six albums and had almost two-dozen hits (including six No. 1 singles & five No. 1 albums). Boyzone have also seen great success in NZ where their hit singles became staples at pop radio in the 90’s – songs such as Picture Of You, No Matter What, Love Me For A Reason and Father & Son.
In conjunction with the tour, Boyzone have just released their final album Thank You & Goodnight through Warner Music. The album finds them collaborating with some very special guest songwriters such as Ed Sheeran (Because) and Gary Barlow (Love). Producers on the album include Xenomania’s Toby Scott, John Shanks (Take That, Westlife), young Swedish hitmakers Goldfingers and Steve Soloman (James Arthur, Jason Mraz). The album features 12 brand new tracks and the band are excited to share a very special tribute to Stephen Gately with the new song I Can Dream. Boyzone came across a demo that Stephen originally recorded for his solo album in 2002 and they’ve had the opportunity to re-work the song and add their harmonies alongside his lead vocal. The group said “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.”
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to farewell Boyzone – it’s going to be one very special night where you will hear all their hits and more!
