Boy band sensation Boyzone has today announced an exclusive outdoor summer concert in Edinburgh on Saturday 6th August.
The band, which has sold over 15 million records, has had six number one hits and has just finished its sell-out Brother tour, will be joined by special guests The Saturdays for the gig at Hopetoun House, the five-star country house and parkland venue on the outskirts of the city.
The show, commissioned by Scottish concert and events promoter CK Events, will see 12,000 fans come together to see Keith, Mikey, Ronan and Shane entertain their Scottish fans with hits from their new album ‘Gave It All Away’ and ‘Stronger’ and old favourites including ‘No Matter What’ and ‘Baby Can I Hold You’.
This event is the first collaboration between CK Events and Hopetoun House since signing a five-year contract in December to bring major music concerts to Edinburgh.
The Saturdays, the UK’s biggest girl band, will open proceedings with a selection of their top ten hits including ‘Higher’ and ‘Missing You’.
Making the announcement, Ronan said:
“We always enjoy coming to Scotland as the fans always give us such a great reception. We can’t wait for these summer dates as we’ll be performing some of our classic hits as well as great tracks from the new album, in these amazing venues and with some cracking support acts. You really don’t want to miss out so come and join us.”
