Early Life and Education

He has a sister named Linda and three brothers named Ciarán, Gerard, and Gary. Keating was educated at St. Fintan's High School, where he participated in track and field.

Boyzone, 1994-1999

In 1993, music manager Louis Walsh placed advertisements in Irish newspapers calling for auditions to form a new Irish boy band. Keating answered the ad and went in to audition; he was ultimately chosen for the band, called Boyzone, alongside Keith Duffy, Shane Lynch, Stephen Gately, Mark Walton, and Richard Rock. Soon, Rock and Walton left, and Michael Graham stepped in. With the lineup in place, Boyzone performed at various pubs and clubs before signing to the label PolyGram in 1994. The group's first release was a cover of the Four Seasons' "Working My Way Back to You." Boyzone went on to release its debut album, "Said and Done," in 1995. It was a big hit, peaking atop the charts in Ireland the UK and launching the successful singles "Love Me for a Reason," "Key to My Life," "So Good," and "Father and Son."

Boyzone's second album, "A Different Beat," came out in 1996. It became the group's international breakthrough, selling two million copies worldwide and spawning hit singles with "Isn't it a Wonder," the title track, and a cover of the Bee Gees' "Words." The third album by Boyzone, 1998's "Where We Belong," had an even better commercial performance; its hit singles included "All That I Need," "No Matter What," and "Baby Can I Hold You." The band continued its success with the 1999 greatest hits album "By Request," which sold more than four million copies globally. Following a tour of Europe, Boyzone decided to disband in late 1999 amid increasing tensions behind the scenes.

Boyzone, 2007-2019

In late 2007, Keating confirmed that Boyzone was getting back together to appear on the annual BBC television fundraiser "Children in Need." The band went on to tour Ireland and the UK before releasing a greatest hits album and two new singles in 2008. Boyzone subsequently released the album "Brother" in 2010; it was the final album to feature Stephen Gately, who passed away the year before. "Brother" debuted at number one in both Ireland and the UK, making it the fourth consecutive studio album by Boyzone to reach number one in both countries. The group went on to release "BZ20" in 2013 and "Dublin to Detroit" in 2014. Boyzone released its seventh and final studio album, "Thank You & Goodnight," in 2018. The band then split up for good in 2019.
