Boyzone are touring for their latest album Thank You & Goodnight. This is their farewell tour and they did not disappoint.
Eventalaide was privileged to attend the Entertainment Centre on Tuesday night to witness Irish superstars.
The support act was Irish singer, songwriter and TV presenter Brian McFadden. He found fame in 1998 as part of the Irish band Westlife. They were together from 1998 to 2004.
It was the luck of the Irish at the concert and we were lucky to experience it too.
Brian sang some of the favourites Everything But You, Like Only a Woman Can, Real To Me. His voice was as strong and powerful as always. He does not look like he has aged at all, his humour keeps him young. The interaction with the crowd was fun and he is a great comedian as well. When a performer keeps the crowd uplifted and positively charged, it shows what an extraordinary person he is. I thoroughly enjoyed his stage presence and was grateful he was the support act.
Irish Boyzone are not only a boy band but also show dedication and strength. This Irish boy band consists of Ronan Keating,(lead vocalist). Keith Duffy (vocals) Shane Lynch (vocals), Mickey Graham (vocals) and fond memories of Stephen Gately who passed away in 2009.
Boyzone were top of the charts from 1993 to 2000 and had 21 singles on the UK charts and 21 singles from the Irish charts. They were known for their dance moves and their Charisma.
Their outfits were dazzling and great for the stage. They oozed style and perfection and everyone was in awe in their presence.
Their renowned songs like When The Going Dets Tough, When You Say Nothing At All, Life Is A Rollercoaster brought everyone back to the late 1990’s listening to their CD and collecting their posters.
The moves they showcased were what boy bands are loved for. They all moved in unison and threw in some humorous moves as well.
The most memorable part of the concert is when the group spoke about their love for Stephen Gately and how much he had brought to their group. He was always raring to go and had energy to burn. Their incredible bond kept Boyzone singing together and his memory made them to push through the hard times. It was inspirational to hear and made everyone realise what dedication, love and support can do.
They sang a song from their new album called Because, where they all stood in a circle looking towards the shining light in the centre. The shining light represented Stephen, whom they believe is always at the concerts with them. This showed the audience that without Stephen Gately there would never be Boyzone, they were all young when they became famous and grew up together.
I was anticipating a great concert but this was beyond my expectations. What a great night, both acts were full of enthusiasm and the interaction with the audience was phenomenal. They made everyone feel positive, upbeat and wanting more.
We were lucky to have both amazing acts in Adelaide and the night could not ha e been even better.
I am going to give this concert 10/10 as by the end you felt that you knew them personally. They are not only great singers, dancers but their overall performance was exhilarating.
Thank you having Eventalaide review this concert. The luck of the Irish shone through.
