Irish pop group Boyzone have vowed to head out on tour again following the death of tragic bandmate Stephen Gately - to thank fans for their loyalty during the difficult time.
The No Matter What hitmakers previously admitted they were wary of hitting the stage again without Gately, who died at his home in Majorca, Spain, in October (09) from a build-up of fluid on the lungs.
Ronan Keating said in December (09), "We don't really know if we are going to tour. We don't know how it's going to be. He (Gately) was the colour in the band."
But the four-piece has pledged to stage concerts again in the near future, as a thank you to fans for supporting their new album Brother, which is expected to top the U.K. charts on Sunday (14Mar10).
Keith Duffy tells Britain's Daily Star, "This week will inspire us to announce a tour at the end of the year. We're still taking chicken steps and it would be our biggest challenge.
"But having found out Brother is currently at number one is a dream come true. It proves how loyal our fan base are, and there is still a future for Boyzone."
