The Brother Tour was the first tour by Irish boy band Boyzone following the death of Stephen Gately.

Background[edit]

At first the band were uncertain about promoting Brother but due to the album's success they decided to go on tour. The act included their entire discography as well as the newer songs from the brother album. They promoted the tour on various television shows.[3] The band attempted to have a hologram of Stephen Gately but this wasn't possible.[4]

Show incidents and events[edit]

Keith Duffy fell through a trap door at the Cardiff show but he continued the performance. A subsequent check at the hospital revealed nothing broken.[5]
