Boyzone are an Irish boy band who had popular mainstream success during the 1990s. They were most successful in the UK and Ireland and they also had differing levels of success in parts of Europe and Asia. The band had six #1 UK hit singles when they were first together. They made a comeback in 2007, originally with the intention of just touring but Ronan Keating confirmed in an interview that they wanted to "outdo Take That" in terms of a successful reunion. They are due to release an album in 2008.
By 2007 the group had sold over 15 million records.
Boyzone was put together in 1993 by Louis Walsh who is also known for managing Johnny Logan and Westlife. Before even recording any material they made a now infamous appearance on RTÉ's The Late Late Show. Their first album Said and Done was released in 1995 and the following two studio albums in 1996 and 1998. Five compilation albums have been released, the latest being Back Again... No Matter What in October 2008.
