RONAN KEATING (article first published : 2002-05-11)

Big Concerts, 94.7 Highveld Stereo and KFM 94.5 proudly announce the upcoming arrival of one of Irelandís greatest exports, Ronan Keating, in Sun City on August 3; in Johannesburg on August 4 and in Cape Town on August 6. Unfortunately Keating will not be performing in Durban.

The former Boyzone front man, will embark on his much anticipated second solo tour, Destination 02 and wow audiences during his last three shows. His concerts in the UK and Ireland sold out on the first day of going on sale, and his presence on stage has been described as "as polished a performance as they come"

At just 25 years old, he has already received virtually every accolade known to man: from numerous Smash Hits Awards for Most Fanciable Male and MTV Awards for Best Pop Band to a coveted Ivor Novello Award - joining the ranks of pop superstars George Michael and Sir Elton John. Ronan was also asked to join Elton John at his concert in Madison Square Gardens in New York last year, where they sang a duet.

With Boyzone, he raked up 16 top three singles (six of which were number ones), four number one albums (selling millions of copies worldwide), dozens of sell-out UK tours and millions of fans the world over. Once they had reached the pinnacle of success, they announced that they were going to take a year out to work on solo projects. Ronan wanted to experience the thrill of starting out again, so he flew to Los Angeles to write and record his debut solo album. Ronan's reputation as an artist of the highest calibre has led to him working with some of the world's best songwriters and producers.

Booking at Computicket. Enquiries to Michael: 083 601-2542, Lara: 082 379-0002 or e-mail: michael@bigconcerts.co.za ; lara@bigconcerts.co.za
