*Apologies for all the spam, but...
In 1995, 12yr old me went to her 1st ever concert at Wembley Arena to see 5 irish boys that she has spent 2yrs obsessing about. I had gone shopping with mum, and in my brand new outfit (yes I can remember exactly what I wore), armed with 5 single red roses, each wrapped individually with their own message I was ready. I remember it so clearly. I cried, I screamed, I sang, I blacked out and I got taken round the side to hand my roses to them. My obsession grew and whilst I loved them all, it was the naughty one at the back who captured my heart, Shane Lynch. I was definitely marrying him. And so it started, every concert, tv appearance, sign in I was there. Mum falling into Ronan Keating’s car, being on the TV, especially at Harrods (when I should have been on work experience) and winning to meet them at Cardiff Arena back in 2013 are amongst the most memorable moments. The loss of Stephen Gately was awful, I mourned for him like I’d lost a friend.
I’ve lost count at the number of times I’ve seen them together & individually. Whether it be theatre, panto or some occasion I still seem to be right there. And whilst my taste in music has changed (drastically) I find myself with a heavy heart back at Wembley Arena for their last ever show... Boyzone, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being there and seeing me through 3 decades... I can only hope Nyla gets to have the same experience & happiness as you have given to me (with whichever boyband is big when that time comes) I can’t wait to live it through her... so for one last time,
