Popular 90s music group Boyzone will be performing at Thetford Forest this summer, it can be revealed today.

The appearance in Suffolk is part of the band’s “BZ20” anniversary celebration and will also form part of the Forestry Commission’s annual concert series, Forest Live.

Boyzone, fronted by Ronan Keating, first came into the public eye in 1993, when they appeared on The Late Late Show.

Since then, they have released 21 singles, seven albums and boast 25million record sales.

They will perform at Thetford Forest on Friday, July 11.

Ronan said: “We’re pleased to be part of the Forest Live tour this year for the first time. It’s going to be great to perform our hits in such beautiful locations.”

Tickets for the gig will go on sale at 9am on Friday. Visit www.forestry.gov.uk/music for information.
