Ronan Keating Says Boyzone Future Is Uncertain

Ronan Keating has told Undercover that the next Boyzone tour may very well be the last thing the Irish act ever does together.

“We will be touring in February and March. With Stephen passing away last year I don’t know if it can ever be the same again,” he tells “I don’t know if there will be a life for Boyzone. The tour will tell us a lot, if the void is too big or if we can move along as a four piece. We haven’t done a whole lot of work together this year because it hasn’t felt right. The tour will show us everything and it could be the last thing we ever do together as a band”.

This year Ronan has been living in Australia and working as a judge in X Factor. Before that, the four surviving members of Boyzone recorded a released a new album featuring vocals from Stephen. “Stephen passed away in October and we recorded the album in December and January. We were still very numb,” he says. “We were around each other constantly, we kind of rallied around each other. The energy in the studio, it felt like Stephen was with us all the time. We were on this buzz. It was a strange buzz but it kept us going. We knew we had to make this album. We had recorded some of Stephen’s vocals earlier in the year so we used those as well. We very much felt like he was part of the album. Then as the year has gone on it has just been different. We have done the odd little performance but it hasn’t felt right. The tour will be a real guide for us whether we can go on”.

While in Australia this year Ronan has recorded a new solo album of duets called ‘Duet’. The album features songs with internationals acts like Yusuf (Cat Stevens), Leann Rimes and Elton John but also Australian stars including Guy Sebastian, The McClymonts, Lee Kernaghan and Paulini. Win it here.
