SINGAPORE — After celebrating 26 years as a band, Irish quartet Boyzone played their last show in Singapore at The Star Theatre on Wednesday (12 June) in an emotional final curtain call as they make their farewell world tour.

The band, led by Ronan Keating, Keith Duffy, Shane Lynch and Mikey Graham, sang tunes from their last album, Thank You and Goodnight as well as fan favourites like, Picture of You, All That I Need and When The Going Gets Tough.

The band also led sweet tributes to the late member Stephen Gately, with their rendition of Dream, Everyday I Love You and Key To My Life.

Before the concert, Yahoo Lifestyle Singapore sat down with the quartet to discuss their career and looked back at their old concert photos (hint: it was 1997).

On whether the band ever thought of quitting, Ronan chimed in as Mikey was explaining: “Keith and Mikey were going home one time (at that time in Bangkok).” Thank goodness, they didn’t or fans would have been so disappointed! But Mikey was glad to have bonded over this experience, and to have this brotherhood: “When we leave this kind of bubble and go home, the rest of our lives is, believe it or not, mature adults in that area of our lives.”

As a fun gesture, we brought out several old concert photos to share with the members, much to everyone’s surprise. “Sunway Lagoon!” Ronan exclaimed as Shane shook his head with embarrassment, probably over the matching concert outfits and ‘90s hair style (Watch the video above).
