Boyzone to perform in Sri Lanka as part of farewell tour

“We all feel that we should now call time on our lives together as Boyzone and go out on a real high,” said the group in a statement, according to the BBC.Formed in 1993, the group had UK number ones with such hits as Words, No Matter What and All That I Need. Irish band Boyzone will be performing live in Sri Lanka in August as part of their farewell tour.The band is scheduled to perform at the CR&FC Grounds on August 16th. “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.” Boyzone have announced they are to split after releasing a “final” album and staging the farewell tour. Yet they also experienced heartbreak when much-loved band member Stephen Gately died in 2009.In advance of their Thank You & Goodnight album, out in November, the band have released a new track called I Can Dream that features his vocals.“We came across a demo that he originally recorded for his solo album in 2002 and we’ve had the opportunity to re-work the song and add our harmonies alongside his lead vocal,” said the band. 444.lk is the official ticketing partner of the event and a sponsor.
