Seeing as it was Mother’s Day this past weekend I thought I’d hand the reins of Chief Reviewer to my mum, Mrs Piper.
So I took her down to Ronan Keating’s final solo gig where he was joined on stage by Boyzone for a three-song finale.
Mrs Piper said: “It was brilliant to see the boys back on stage together for the first time since Steo died. I had the best evening – Ronan’s brilliant live and the set list was great. He’s easy on the eye too – so that was a nice treat.” Cheeky minx!
Anyway, Ronan told me before hitting the stage that he hopes to tour with the band by the end of the year as a four-piece.
He said: “We’ll be back. We thought it would be too hard to tour again but we’re more excited about being a band again than ever before. We will tour for the fans and in memory of Stephen.”
And it’s just as well really because the lads’ new album Brother has shot straight to Number One in the album charts. Congrats lads!
