Boyzone returns to perform May 26 at Smart Araneta Coliseum
MANILA, Philippines–One Direction may be the world’s biggest boy band at present, but some 20 years ago there was Boyzone, a five-member vocal group from Dublin, Ireland, which made waves globally for its signature style of covering classic pop hits as well as its own ability to write songs.
After its last performance in the Philippines in 1997, Boyzone returns for a one-night concert on May 26 at Smart Araneta Coliseum—part of this year’s continuation of the group’s BZ20 Tour (also known as the 20th Anniversary Tour) which began in 2013.
Boyzone still has four of its original members in its present lineup: Keith Duffy, Mike Graham, Ronan Keating and Shane Lynch. One other member, Stephen Gately, died in 2009.
Some of its biggest hits include covers of “Love Me for a Reason,” “Words,” “Baby Can I Hold You” and “Father and Son,” and most especially original material such as “Key to My Life,” “So Good,” “Coming Home Now,” “All That I Need” and “No Matter What.”
Tickets to Boyzone’s Smart Araneta concert will start selling on March 28. Tel. 911-555; log on to ticketnet.com.ph.
