Getting up close and personal with Boyzlife stars Keith Duffy and Brian McFadden will set you back almost €100.

Boyzone singer Duffy and ex-Westlife star McFadden have teamed up to form the 'manband' which will tour the UK with a series of hotel concerts next year.

On top of tickets to see the lads in action, the Dublin singers are also offering a meet-and-greet deal for fans who want to get a slice of the action backstage.

The VIP Package includes a "private meet and greet with Boyzlife straight after the show" for no longer than one hour.

The package also includes a photo opportunity at the private encounter as well as signed exclusive tour merchandise and 'premium seating' at the concert. The packages priced at £77 - roughly €90 are available across all of the lads' tour dates.

It looks like fans are willing spend that money as the VIP packages have now sold out for nearly all of the 12 concert dates.

McFadden and Duffy will kick off their tour with the Hilton hotel group in London on October 16.

It will take them across the UK, Scotland and Wales with a final date in Belfast on October 31.

Tickets are available in three categories with the cheapest being €35, while the most expensive cost €58.

The delighted lads yesterday announced that only one of their gigs, which will see them perform a series of hits from their Westlife/Boyzone days, has yet to sell out.

McFadden left Westlife in 2004 and has forged a solo career in music and on TV, most recently on Channel 4 series The Jump. Duffy has pursued an acting career, and is currently appearing in the Gaiety's production of John B Keane's Big Maggie.

McFadden, who split from wife Vogue Williams last year, has said that they are hoping to get other band members on board.

However, Mayo music mogul Louis Walsh yesterday ruled out any of the other Westlife members signing up for Boyzlife.

"I read about Boyzlife and that's Brian and Keith," Louis said. "I like both of them, I think they'll do okay. But there was a rumour about all of Boyzone and Westlife and that is absolutely not true," he added.
