Boyzone planning 20th anniversary album

London: Irish boyband Boyzone are planning a special album and tour next year to mark their 20th anniversary in music.

The group formed after responding to an advertisement hunting for stars in 1993, and their debut album -- Said and Done -- hit shelves the following year.

"We`ve plans in place for a tour and an album next year for the 20th anniversary - that`s if people want to come and see us," quoted group member Keith Duffy as saying.

"We`ve a very loyal fanbase that always come in their thousands. It`s a nice set-up. We never broke up, so we can take time out to do our own thing, and then get back together when it suits," the 37-year-old added.
