IRISH POP SUPERSTARS ANNOUNCE SELECT SHOWS IN 2017 AND ARE COMING TO THE 3aaa COUNTY GROUND SATURDAY 16 SEPTEMBER
Irish pop sensations Boyzone are set to play a headline show on Saturday 16 September 2017 at The 3aaa County Ground, home of Derbyshire County Cricket Club.
This will be one of only a handful of dates that Boyzone will play in 2017 making this an unmissable night.
Boyzone said “We’re really excited to be back out playing live. It’s going to be great to entertain fans for a select number of shows this summer and we can’t wait to treat the East Midlands to what promises to be a superb night at the 3aaa County Ground in Derby. Next year we’ll celebrate our 25th anniversary, which is something we’re very proud and incredibly excited about. Long may this incredible journey continue.”
Twenty-four years, twenty five million record sales, seven hit studio albums, six UK #1 singles and hundreds of thousands of ticket sales later; Ronan, Keith, Mikey & Shane are Boyzone and are still going strong.
With their 25th anniversary due in 2018, the guys have taken a moment to stop and look back at what is an amazing achievement in the ephemeral world of pop music.
Their debut album, ‘Said And Done’, crashed into the UK #1 spot in 1995, followed by their first UK #1 single ‘Words’ off their second album. With sold-out shows and top selling singles as far afield as Asia and right across Europe, everything Boyzone touched turned to gold.
The band played their last sell out show as a group in 2000 before moving on to focus their attentions on solo careers, acting, theatre performances and reality TV.
In 2008 the band reformed and their ‘Back Again: No Matter What’ tour was described as what both audiences and critics agreed was their best show yet.
Following the tragic passing of band member Stephen Gately there was uncertainty about the future of the band, and whilst Ronan, Mikey, Shane & Keith have kept themselves busy outside Boyzone, 2017 will see the Boyz from Dublin set off across the UK for a series of outdoor summer shows.
Boyzone are only performing select shows in 2017 making their show at The 3aaa County Ground, home of Derbyshire CCC, a key date for your calendar.
Tickets for Boyzone at The 3aaa County Ground on Saturday 16 September go on sale from 9.00am on Friday 2 June. Tickets are priced from £37.50 + booking fees.
