BOYZONE will perform at Westonbirt in July after announcing their Forest Live debut this summer.

In a continuation of the celebration of their ‘BZ20’ anniversary, Ronan, Keith, Shane and Mikey will be performing in four spectacular woodland locations as part of the Forestry Commission’s annual concert series.

After 21 singles, seven albums and 25million record sales, Boyzone are still going strong. In a phenomenal start to a musical career, they scored 16 consecutive top five singles such as ‘Love Me For A Reason’, ‘Father and Son’ and ‘Picture of You’ and the run included six number one’s ‘Words’, ‘A Different Beat’, ‘All That I Need’, ‘No Matter What’, ‘When The Going Gets Tough’ and ‘You Needed Me’.

Forest Live is an independent programme organised by the Forestry Commission bringing music to new audiences without commercial branding or sponsorship. Income generated from ticket sales is spent on improving the local forests for both people and wildlife. With everything required for a great night out, including full catering and bar facilities, the gigs are renowned for their relaxed atmosphere.

Frontman Ronan Keating said: “We’re pleased to be part of the Forest Live tour this year for the first time. It’s going to be great to perform our hits in such beautiful locations”.
