Boyzone back in the park - after 15 years

Boyzone's Shane Lynch and Keith Duffy told of their pleasure at seeing fans of all ages enjoy their music in London's Hyde Park.

The boyband - Ronan Keating (37), Duffy (39), Lynch (38), and Mikey Graham (41) - played the main stage at British Summer Time's Family Day.

Lynch said before going on stage: "It feels really good. It's a relatively good day to the point where the sun isn't splitting the sky, so no one's getting burned out there which is always a good thing.

"It's good to be here. I think '99 was the last time Boyzone played in Hyde Park, Party in the Park as it was, and it's great to be back."

Appreciative

Duffy added: "It's been pretty amazing actually, because 21 years in the business and the type of band we are we're still very fortunate and appreciative to still be doing it.

"We see familiar faces in the audience of fans we've played to over the years. You see they're there with their mothers and their kids. It's good to see we've got the same fans."

And the lads admitted they would be staying on to watch headline act Tom Jones.

Lynch said: "Tom's an amazing, amazing performer, we're going to stick around and watch him."
