Anyone remember Ronan Keating? After seven years off, the famous band decided to reunite and make a comeback ... with a new album and a Tour.

The boys have grown up ...

I used to have the hots for Stephen Gately. But then I went to London and he was in a musical (Joseph and the Amazing, etc)/

 

Well, he is a bit queeny, and it wasn't the role. My lust left because he just doesn't have much charisma either. Otherwise, I am sure that he is a nice guy.

 

PS_ Looks like the Gaiety curtain has been resucitated. These guys pulled all the stops, didn't they?

I feel sorry for them at this stage in time. With a reformed NKOTB doing quite well in North America on the concert circuit and the newly reunited Take That ( minus Robbie Williams ) gobbling up the European market for themselves with very little competition from their contemporaries of yesteryear. Somehow the impression is that Boyzone will struggle to find a larger audience which doesn't tend to bode too well for a band's management that feels they can survive and be competetive in today's music climate. It's a perfect recipe for disaster. Also from a touring point of view, at the end of the day from a financial point of view, everything has to add up or they risk losing quite a considerable amount of money. Perhaps they should have been touring a year or so ago, then they might have had a chance before competition from other old bubble gum pop groups would have built up for that ever so limited audience that they are all clamouring for.

 

The best thing that this Irish group could do for themselves is if there is to be a a followup album of original music in the near future, they should sort of reinvent themselves a bit with the sound and maybe do more of a rock album with less emphasis on pop. The guys are still friends with Van Morrison, Sinnead O'Conner and offcourse Bono of U2. They even had a cameo on U2's music video " Sweetest Thing ". The commonality between all three of the above mentioned artists is engineer/producer, Steven Lillywhite who has a really good mind for music and ironically still likes Boyzone a bit. He recently produced some new songs with Matchbox 20 for their greatest hits package from 2007, I think. I hope one day Boyzone utilise his talents.

 

If Boyzone carry on with the bubble gum pop sound that dominated the music pop charts over a decade ago, then they'll just fade into obscurity or they could reinvent themselves like the Police and Genesis did in their respective heydays. In the year 2007, both groups were some of the biggest concert tours out there in ticket revenues. Reinvention is not a bad thing, I wish Boyzone the best as they ponder on with the future.

If they appear on stage wearing nothing more than a top hat (re pic # 3) they should have great appeal to male & female alike.

 

They could always strip down to that after opening with the silver lame pants.

Rohale, you raise some interesting points. Thanks for posting.

From what I read in the newspaper the tour was a great success. The boysband had to invest their own funds, because no one record company was ready to take the risk and sponsor the tour. Fortunately, they got their capital back and earned in addition 1 million GBP each.
