Brian McFadden on stage with Boyzone
Brian McFadden has just been confirmed as special guest to Boyzone when they play the RDS Arena, Dublin this coming June 28th.
Brian McFadden has recently finished writing and recording his second solo album which is due to have a UK summer release in 2008. Brian recorded the album, produced by Stuart Crichton, in both Australia and the UK, and has chosen Australia to be the backdrop for the first video from the album. Heâ€™ll be returning to the UK ahead of rehearsals to support Boyzone on tour throughout May and June.
Brian was one fifth of one of the biggest boy bands in the world, selling 30 million records and picking up twelve UK number 1s during his time in Westlife. His debut solo album, â€˜Irish Sonâ€™, produced the number 1 smash, â€˜Real To Meâ€™ and the top 5 singles, â€˜Irish Sonâ€™ and â€˜Almost Hereâ€™.
Apart from his success as a recording artist McFadden can feel justifiably proud of his achievements as a songwriter. With solo records reaching Number 1 in UK, Ireland, Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Holland, Belgium and Australia, he has also been critically recognised with his song â€˜Demonsâ€™ being featured in the U.S. TV series â€˜Lostâ€™. In addition, Brian has written songs for artists as diverse as Il Divo and Girls Aloud, as well as the Theme for the Commonwealth Games. Brian co-wrote six of the twelve tracks on Delta Goodremâ€™s latest album â€˜Deltaâ€™, released in Australia in October 2007 which recently debuted at no 1 in the album charts down under.
Now at the age of 27, Brian is excited to embark on this next stage in his career. With all the hard won wisdom of a pop music veteran but none of the cynicism, his passion for music is undiminished and reinvigorated by his new collection of songs which he looks forward to playing live.
