BOYZONE'S Keith Duffy has been brought to hospital in Thailand after feeling ill during the Irish boyband's tour.

The 44-year-old singer felt ill before a gig in Bangkok and was admitted to hospital following medical advice.

His bandmates Ronan Keating, Mikey Graham and Shane Lynch appeared on stage without him.

Boyzone tweeted: "Keith was taken ill before the gig here in Bangkok this evening and has been admitted to hospital on the advice of the local medical team.

"Our brother will be back on his feet as soon as possible and we thank you for all your wonderful support in the meantime."

A representative for the band told the Metro newspaper he had "come down with a virus" during the band's time in Asia.

The 90s boyband have been performing in recent months as part of their Thank You and Goodnight farewell tour, including gigs in Dublin and Belfast earlier this year.
