For some they are considered the anthem-providers of their early teens, for some they are the whitest group ever manufactured (not a compliment by any means) but either way they are officially the most successful boy band in music history in terms of record sales. Having reformed for a tour for the first time in a decade, the lads knew where to find old fans who still knew every spin in every jerky dance sequence… Ireland, that’s where. The land where even failed country music stars from America make it big.
Before their 02 gig the boyos visited Ireland’s oldest pub, as The Brazen Head is known since it predates to 1198, for a birra craic and if the Irish public had any say, a dance off. If pictures of their unexpected after party are anything to go by, the dance off did eventual happen. On bar tops, as only a drunken aged pop star can pull off with no regrets.
