Boyzone ditched by Louis

Postby amsroks » Sun Jun 12, 2011 9:54 pm

Boyzone have reportedly been ditched by manager Louis Walsh and advised to split up.

Low ticket sales for their latest tour and Ronan Keating's affair with a dancer were blamed for the move, the News of the World reports.

"Louis has told Boyzone they're finished. Ronan doesn't want to accept it but without Louis they have no chance," a source said.
‎"The affair changed everything for many fans. It destroyed the family-friendly image that made the band popular.

"They kept a diehard fanbase but the 'Brother' tour earlier this year wasn't a big success. Louis didn't bother seeing a single show. [They] just couldn't compete with the Take That comeback and lots of tickets weren't sold. So Louis decided it was the right time for the band to finish."

However, a close friend of Keating's insisted that Boyzone will stay together, saying: "Despite what Louis might say, in the end he had very little to do with Boyzone - and the last tour was actually a success."

I think they don't work anymore because Westlife fill the Boyzone void and even though I detest Westlife, they are kinda better!!

Louis has a point, it'd take a lot to get them up to where Take That are now...

As for WL, I took a friend to see them on their last tour... if it wasn't for the free bags of chocolate buttons I was given I'd have fallen asleep... shame really.

I got fraped recently, and as a resuly, have almost daily updates from the boyzone page. It seems they've still got a lot of fans and people willing to decalre their undying love for them. I suppose if they can make a stack of cash off them buying concert tickets, they may as well!

Well I got rid of the obvious ones, like the make-up shops and lingerie stuff, but every once in a while an update pops up that I've no clue where it came from. After I while I got used to it and just stopped unliking them, hence the Boyzone "like". I'm sure theres more in there somewhere but i dont know how to check my "likes"!
