Irish boyband Boyzone are planning a reunion tour following Ronan Keating's decision to take part after previously refusing to rejoin his bandmates.

The LOVE ME FOR A REASON hitmakers split in 1999 when Keating went solo, and he has been reluctant to reunite Boyzone until now.

But fellow band member Stephen Gately persuaded the singer to agree to a comeback when they met up at SIR Elton John and David Furnish's wedding last month (DEC05).

Gately says, "We had a long chat about reforming and (Ronan) is definitely in. He said he can't wait to meet up with the rest of the lads again.

"It's now just a case of agreeing a time when everyone is free. We can't wait to get out on stage again for the fans."
