Boyzone’s Shane Confirms Anniversary Tour

Shane Lynch has confirmed the pop band will “rubber stamp” their 25th anniversary with a tour and insisted they will “always be a five” after the tragic death of Stephen Gately eight years ago.

The cheeky chap hinted at huge plans to mark the group’s milestone on today’s Lorraine show, confirming The Sun’s exclusive story they will reunite for the milestone in 2018.

Talking of a reunion, he told host Lorraine Kelly: "It's 25 years - we definitely have to rubber stamp that.

"We can't let it go.

"I love those boys, I love being with them, I love my musical side of the world and we just have to work everything out.

"It's a great time for Boyzone - we come and go, we dip in and out.

"We might be allowed to take our reigns this time and do what we want to do."

He added: "But our fans are the most important thing - if they want it (a tour), we will give it to them."

At the height of their fame in the Nineties Boyzone sold 25million records worldwide, scoring six chart-topping ­singles and four No1 albums.

After splitting up in 2000 they re-formed in 2008 for a blockbuster world tour and greatest hits album.

But sadly just one year later founding member Stephen was found dead at his home in Majorca.

Tattooed hunk Shane today told the ITV show: "Our Steyo, it doesn't matter where we are in the world, we will always be a five."

Shane also spoke to the Scottish host about the recent terror attack on Manchester, following the Ariana Grande gig on Monday night.

He admitted he was "rocked" by the horror suicide bomb at the Manchester Arena and admitted: "I could have been there myself.

"As an artist, I can't imagine what that's like, to know it happened at your concert.

"I don't know what we (Boyzone) would have done in that instance. It's each to their own."

Meanwhile the Irish hottie is juggling his music comeback with his second passion - cars.

His petrol-head persona come to the fore in new show Supercar Megabuild, broadcast on National Geographic.

The star revealed he was "so excited" to be teaming up with London supercar guru Alex Prindiville - his pal of 10 years - for his "dream job".

Shane revealed the first episode will also feature supermodel Jodie Kidd and said: "It's almost like a reality show.

"We take supercars and change them depending on what the client wants."

Fans will see Jodie request her family saloon Maserati Ghibli is switched to a vehicle capable of clocking up 200pmph.
