If you were around in the 90s, you already know the magic of boy bands, but you may not have had the chance to experience them live as many of those bands broke up before they had a chance to perform live in India. Although there's no way to go back in time yet, you can relive the past with the nostalgic hits of the two bands – Westlife and Boyzone. The two bands were at the peak of the boy band craze of the late 90s and early 2000s. Westlife's Brian McFadden and Boyzone's Keith Duffy, have collaborated to form Boyzlife. And for boy band fans, it doesn't get any better than this. The Boyzlife tour in India will be on two days – Mumbai on 19th May and Bengaluru on 20th May.
Brian McFadden's busy life
Even before being a part of Westlife, Brian had a busy life. He had appeared on an Irish TV show and also made his own R&B band with his friends. But it's when he joined Westlife in 1998 that the world really came to hear his voice. The band had many chart-toppers, and here's one to remind you how great Westlife songs were:
After leaving Westlife in 2004, he's had a successful solo career with four albums and a single that reached Number 1, Real to Me.
Keith Duffy's dynamic zone
Keith Duffy was one of the original members of Boyzone, and we almost missed the chance to see him be a part of it. He wasn't selected in the first audition, but he was spotted dancing at a nightclub by the band's manager, Louis Walsh, and the rest is history. Boyzone had multiple Number 1 singles, and here's one of Boyzone songs that could be heard everywhere:
After Boyzone disbanded in 2000, Keith went on to become a television star appearing in the first series of UK's Big Brother, a French game show named Fort Boyard, and a hit soap opera called Coronation Street.
Brian McFadden and Keith Duffy have been lifelong friends so it was inevitable that the two fabulous vocalists would perform together at some point. The two teamed together to make Boyzlife, a name that's a clever mashup of the names of both their bands. And it's not just the name together, the duo is magical together too:
Boyzlife has already performed for thousands of fans, and you can be one to hear the classic hits of Westlife and Boyzone. Isn't that a dream come true? Book tickets for the Boyzlife tour here.
