Believe it or not, it's been twenty years since that Late Late show. Well, who's laughing now? They've sold over twenty-five million albums, had four number one albums and six number one singles and there isn't an Irish person who wouldn't be able to recognise one of their songs.

Boyzone have just announced an eighteen-date arena tour, as the presser puts it, "to thank their fans for their phenomenal support over the years and to pay tribute to their brother, Stephen Gately."

The lads are currently in studio, hard at work recording the album, entitled 'BZ20' and working with producer Brian Rawling. Rawling's work can be heard on Kylie Minogue's albums and, more recently, Cheryl Cole's A Million Lights.
