Boyzone Blast Blue
Irish band Boyzone have criticised 'One Love' hitmakers Blue for deciding not to dance at their upcoming reunion concerts.
Boyzone have blasted Blue for refusing to dance at their reunion shows.
Ronan Keating - frontman of the Irish boy band - criticised the 'One Love' hitmakers for disappointing their fans by choosing a less strenuous routine when they reunite at the weekend.
He said: "It's a cop-out if you ask me. Fans are going for the nostalgia and so they will want to see Blue pulling out the dance moves."
Blue - consisting of Lee Ryan, Duncan James, Antony Costa and Simon Webbe - are due to perform at Capital FM's Summertime Ball at the Emirates Stadium in London on Sunday (07.06.09) after a four-year break.
Ronan has offered to teach the British band some last-minute dance moves to help improve the show.
He added to Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "Send the lads over and we'll show them our moves. We all had to get super-fit because we're up on stage for two hours. It's hard work but you have to give people what they want."
Meanwhile, Boyzone - also consisting of Stephen Gately, Shane Lynch, Keith Duffy and Mikey Graham - have been exerting themselves to the point of embarrassment on their current 'Back Again... No Matter What' tour.
Stephen revealed: "During my solo routine of Beyonce's hit 'Single Ladies' I do all of the moves that she does in her amazing video.
"I was bending over and suddenly felt my trousers rip at the back. I shuffled off stage at the end carefully trying not to turn around."
The Irish group are currently working on a new album which they hope to release later this year.
Stephen added: "We're still looking for the right producer. I'm a massive fan of Lily Allen's 'The Fear' so I'd be keen to get her producer Greg Kurstin."
