Boyzone’s Keith Duffy and Brian McFadden of Westlife are set to join forces to create new boyband Boyzlife reports The Sun.
The duo will tour the UK as Boyzlife later this year, and could see other members of Boyzone and Westlife joining them in the future, “We all had a chat, the lads. We said it would be amazing,” confirmed McFadden in an exclusive interview with The Sun, “We all get on so well so you never know. We would have so much fun on tour. We could end up adding more people to the next one. Right now this is about me and Keith but the door is always open.”
The tour, which is being backed by the hotel chain Hilton, will kick off in London on October 16 before going on to do 11 more shows at Hilton hotels across the UK.
The duo are set to perform a selection of Boyzone and Westlife’s greatest hits, including “No Matter What” and “Flying Without Wings”, but are also open to the idea of writing and recording new music together. “Westlife have had 14 No1s, Boyzone have had nine or ten. There’s a lot of material we could perform. But we wouldn’t want to tour old music all the time. We love making music,” said McFadden, with Duffy adding, “We might end up writing some songs together. There’s no limit to this. We’re going out there with our ears and eyes open.”
