Bad news for Boyzone fans after a short spell of hope.

Earlier today it was reported that Boyzone were set to reunite for a new string of concerts this year following the bands reported decision to buy a football club.

Now, however, Ronan Keating has denied the rumours.

Formed back in 1993 by Louis Walsh, the boyband have put off getting back together for a number of years, but the Mirror reported earlier today (February 7) that this would be coming to an end very soon.

The Mirror also reported that Ronan Keating, Shane Lynch, and Keith Duffy recently came together to sign a lucrative deal involving huge shares in Chorley FC where, the article claimed, they planned to host a few concerts later this year.

An insider told the Mirror: “It’s a really exciting move for Chorley FC. It is a game-changer that has the potential to bring the town into the limelight like never before, generating a buzz and publicity that will shine a bright light on Chorley.

“Ronan, Shane and Keith are bursting with excitement. Boyzone’s presence at this Saturday’s game will undoubtedly create an electric atmosphere, filled with music, joy, and a shared love for football and community.

“Chorley FC is a 140 year old club and Chorley is a big town in a great location, perfect for Boyzone.”

However when Ronan Keating was asked if the news was true, he responded on Twitter writing: “No Sarah, it’s not.”

Despite Ronan Keating denying the rumours, Chorley FC have been retweeting articles about the deal and subsequent concerts all afternoon, including an article they shared from BBC News.

A spokesperson for the club said: “We are bursting with excitement and gratitude for this incredible opportunity.”

So honestly, who knows?
