BOYZLIFE, a supergroup made up of members of Westlife and Boyzone, is failing to sell out its Irish shows.

The group, which includes Boyzone’s Keith Duffy and Westlife’s Brian McFadden, have proved a hit with British music fans but the pair are struggling to fill small venues around Ireland.

The Irish Independent reports that while 11 of their 12 tour dates in Britain were sold out within two days of tickets going on sale, tickets for the Dublin dates in the 300-seat venue of the Conrad Hotel just off Grafton Street have been slow to shift.

Duffy and McFadden announced the tour earlier this month and plan on performing a combination of both bands’ hits across both countries when the tour hits the road in October.

Their supergroup has proven controversial with their former bandmates.

Boyzone lead singer Ronan Keating said last month that a collaboration between both groups would be “fun” – but Westlife’s Kian Egan has blasted Duffy and McFadden’s venture.

“You know, a member of Westlife who left the band after four years decides to use half the name for whatever it is they’re doing,” Egan said, speaking on 98fm last week.

“It was really aggravating and unfair on the fans.”

The Boyzlife tour begins in London on October 16.
