Boyzone reunion confirmed as group to join forces in Ryan Reynolds style business venture




Boyzone are gearing up for a fresh round of concerts as the group reunite for a joint business venture, The Mirror can exclusively reveal.


Formed by Louis Walsh back in 1993, the boyband have put off getting back together for some time now, with rumours they were coming back for their 30th anniversary this year. But now sources say it’s happening and it’ll be confirmed in a matter of weeks.


Ronan Keating, Shane Lynch and Keith Duffy are in the process of signing a big deal in a business move similar to that made by Hollywood’s Ryan Reynolds and Shut Up rapper Stormzy. Brian McFadden is also thought to be eyeing up the opportunity as the band prepare to become the latest celebrities to own a football club.




We can reveal that the Boyzone lads are looking to buy into Chorley FC, based in Lancashire, and that they’ll be heading to this Saturday’s home game against Solihull in the FA Trophy to officially seal the deal, with Brian hoping to sign up too.


“It’s a really exciting move for Chorley FC,” an insider told The Mirror. “It is a game-changer that has the potential to bring our town into the limelight like never before, generating a buzz and publicity that will shine a bright light on Chorley.”


“Ronan, Shane and Keith are bursting with excitement. Boyzone’s presence at this Saturday’s game will undoubtedly create an electric atmosphere, filled with music, joy, and a shared love for football and community,” the source continued.


The lads have filmed a documentary with Sky TV about their rapid rise to fame and their latest football club venture is thought to feature in another upcoming programme, insiders tell us. The band will also be performing comeback concerts at Chorley FC’s grounds at the club’s famous Victory Park stadium as part of their new deal.


Official news is thought to be announced at the weekend as the boys attend this Saturday’s match. The club only recently got taken on by new owner Prince Yemoh who announced his acquisition in May last year with his company Reset Events Ltd.


Boyzone’s involvement comes after Ronan previously said the band wouldn’t be getting back together after they “went out on a high” with their final tour and album back in 2018. He explained things “never felt the same” after the death bandmate Stephen Gately in 2009.


The group’s co-star tragically died aged just 33 after an undetected congenital heart defect. Ronan, thought to be at the front of this new business deal, previously said that ending Boyzone was the “right thing”. He explained: “We had 25 great years.”


“We went out on a high. We wrote the last chapter ourselves. For me, the band finished when Steven passed away, never felt the same again, and we went on and did it for a while but it never felt the same,” he told MailOnilne. “Finishing it the way we did after 25 years was the right thing. We went out on a high, we had five great nights at the Palladium.


“They’re all my friends, we have great relationships, they’re all my brothers. I don’t want to tarnish that, I don’t go back and flog something that doesn’t feel right. What we did was special and we’ve left people with all these great songs and that’s enough I think.”
