A word from the photographer

The Irish pop vocal group Boyzone hit Tokyo on Tuesday night. This was their first concert in Japan, and it would be the last. Unfortunately, they’ve already announced that they will split the band at the end of this year. So they came here during their ‘Thank You & Goodnight World Tour’ to say farewell directly to their Japanese fans.

About Boyzone

Boyzone were formed in 1993 in Dublin, Ireland. They once broke up in 1999 and reunited in 2007.They were in their heyday in the 90s, but they still have a very loyal fan base especially in UK and Asia.I saw many diehard fans came from South East Asia solely for the purpose of attending Boyzone’s Japan tour.‘Thank You & Goodnight’ was the seventh studio album, which was released in November 2018. They are currently on their final world tour with this album.

Brian McFadden

Getting the evening started, they had the great pop singer Brian McFadden opening for them. He is a founding member of Irish boy band Westlife. We enjoyed his upbeat performance filled with his solo tracks and Westlife hits. To my surprise, I came across one of the highlights during this opening set.

Brian and Bryan

When Brian came down to the floor and enjoyed singing and interacting with the crowd, he suddenly found a dedicated fan singing along with him very well. Brian was impressed and asked his name. Surprisingly, his name was also Bryan! (Although they are differently spelled)Brian asked Bryan to get up on the stage, and they sang ‘Uptown Girl’ (Westlife hit song, Billy Joel cover) together. I must say that Bryan sang the song perfectly, and also his stage presence was confident and natural. Just amazing!

I couldn’t help interviewing with Bryan after the show because his voice and performance were really awesome. His name is Bryan Cubelo. He is from Philippines, lives and works in Tokyo.At first, I thought he was a professional singer, but his occupation is an English teacher. He has been a huge fan of Boyzone since 1994 and also loves Westlife. He loves to sing for two decades and has experienced many opportunities to sing in glee clubs, bands and weddings. I’m pretty sure his appearance made a big appeal to both the band and the audience.

25 years of Boyzone

After a short break, Boyzone took to the stage. The crowd welcomed them with deafening cries of joy.The set list was a brilliant mix of old and new songs including some covers. Keating’s sweet and husky voice mesmerized the audience. In addition to artisitic films, their old videos were projected on the big screen one after another and the lighting was very bright throughout the night. It was a great way to remember their history of over 25 years.

Stephan Gately

In the middle part of the show, the band paid a tribute to founder member Stephan Gately, who passed away unexpectedly in 2009 due to a heart defect. Their attitude of respect was really touching. It was clear that Stephan was still on stage with the remained four members, Ronan, Mikey, Keith and Shane. We are able to hear Stephan’s voice in ‘Dream’, the last track from their latest studio album ‘Thank You & Goodnight’. They featured Stephan’s vocals from a salvaged demo. So I guess that their whole tour must be a tribute and farewell to him.

A show of love, laughter and happiness

It was very nice to see the band members were on good terms with each other and having fun during the show. Lots of joking, smiles and hugs on stage proved that they still had a strong bond and maintained a spirit of brotherhood.Their show was visually stunning and filled with love, laughter and happiness. We enjoyed their entertaining show and spent a delightful evening of dance and music.
