A trio of retro British boybands are coming to Dubai on Friday October 13. The Irish Village presents The Boys Are Back In Town, a one-night only gig that will see Blue, Five and Boyzlife take to the stage. Blue, Five and Boyzlife (Keith Duffy and Brian McFadden, who previously appeared as members of Boyzone and Westlife) will all be on the line-up.
Blue are a four-piece English boyband made up of members Simon Webbe, Duncan James, Antony Costa and Lee Ryan. During their four-year career, they released three studio albums and a string of popular hits including All Rise, One Love and Guilty. The group got back together in 2011 and have been releasing music and touring together for the last decade.
Five – now made up of three of the five original members – Sean Conlon, Richie Neville and Scott Robinson, were a huge success story on the British music scene in the late 1990s and early 2000s. When they take to the stage this October, fans of the band can look forward to a string of their hits from back in the day like Everybody Get Up, If Ya Gettin’ Down and Keep On Movin’, as well as tracks from their fourth studio album released last year, Time.
“When the going gets tough”, why not team up together and try your luck as a new Frankenband? That’s exactly what Westlife’s Brian McFadden and Boyzone’s Keith Duffy did to create Boyzlife, and this ’90s supergroup is heading back to Dubai this October. The pair will perform a selection of the biggest hits from their previous bands. Our fingers are crossed for Words, Flying Without Wings and No Matter What.
Tickets for the over 21s event are on sale for Dhs250 if you wish to stand and Dhs225 for seated grandstand spots.
