"To have been together for twenty years is fantastic, and this is the perfect way for us to celebrate our milestone," said the band. "We love performing in front of an audience and we can't wait to sing some of our classics once again, as well as offering our audiences something new."

During the one-hour show, which will be hosted by Dannii Minogue, the band will give exclusive performances of their new songs, and perform classics such as 'Love Me For A Reason' and 'Words.'

Boyzone will also be joined by Spice Girls member Mel C to perform a rendition of one of their biggest hits, 'No Matter What.' The rest of the show will include archive footage charting the band's career, exclusive interviews and a tribute to fifth member Stephen Gately, who passed away in 2009.

Twenty years of Boyzone, what an incredible career. It will be a night of pop music to remember."
