Details of Boyzone and the Ticket Luck value
Boyzone is a boy band, which originated in Dublin, Ireland in 1993. Boyzone was an outcome of the auditions that were held in search for the male vocalists of a boy band to form the Irish version of English boy band, Take That.
The auditions were held by Louis Walsh, who has also managed another one of Irish singers, Johnny Logan and another Irish boy band called 'Westlife'. About 300 male singers took part in the auditions and out of which only 6 were selected.
The band's first appearance later came out to be their most embarrassing performance of all time, as they danced, in front of the rather confused audience, to a backing track on a hit Irish show called 'Late Late Show'.
The original members of the group left and were replaced by new members before it reached the height of success. The group's line up was later stabilized when it consisted of Ronan Keating, Mikey Graham, Keith Duffy, Stephen Gately and Shane Lynch.
Initially the band usually appeared performing in gigs at local clubs and pubs and continued doing that until 1994, when they were signed by the Polygram Records.The first track that the band released after being signed by Polygram was 'Working My Way Back to You' a cover of Four Seasons' top rated single.
The maximum height it claimed was a 3rd spot, in the Irish Charts. Boyzone released its second single which was another cover song, this time it was 'Love Me for a Reason' by Osmonds. The song found its place on the #2 spot of UK Charts, and was band's first break through hit.
Boyzone's debut album was released on November 21, 1994 and was titled 'Said and Done'. The album found itself some success as it reached the #1 spot on the UK music charts.
The album comprised of 13 tracks out of which 8 were cover songs. Some of their notable singles from their debut album were Father and Son, Coming Home Now and Love Me for a Reason.
Boyzone released its second studio album on August 23, 1996, titled 'A Different Beat'. Their second album also received positive reviews and took the #1 spot on the UK music Charts and remained on that spot for one week.
The album also contained one of their greatest hit single, the cover of Bee Gees song 'Words', which toped the UK music charts at #1 spot.
Other singles that peaked at #1 position on UK charts included 'A Different Beat' and 'Isn't It a Wonder'.The album also featured 'Picture of You', a song written by the lead singer of the band Ronan Keating.

'Where We Belong' was followed by their forth album 'By Request', which was a compilation album. The album was released on August 3, 1999 by the Universal Records and contained 19 tracks.
Followed by the release of their compilation album, Ronan Keating released his very first solo single 'When You Say Nothing At All'. And later all the members of the band decided to take a time off from the band and go on as solo acts.
