Ronan Keating excited to sing Breathe on solo tour
Ronan Keating has announced his solo tour - and he can't wait to sing new song 'Breathe' to his fans.
The 38-year-old singer has unveiled autumn dates in the UK for his 'Time Of My Life Tour' in support of his upcoming solo album of the same name, which is a collection of love songs inspired by his relationship with his wife Storm Uechtritz.
Ronan has already started rehearsing his fresh material to find out how he's going to recreate them on stage and he is sure 'Breathe' is going to become a live highlight because it's such a "euphoric" song.
He told BANG Showbiz: "Storm's inspired me for the last 12 months to make this record, I've dug deep about my feelings and all the songs come from the heart. It's very autobiographical, I'm in a great place and that's come out of me in the lyrics. I'm proud of the songs, I think they're my best work and I'm excited for people to hear them live, I was excited for Storm to hear them.
"There's a song called 'Breathe' - which is going to be the second single - I'm really enjoying singing it at home just with my guitar as I get ready for the live performances and that track has a great euphoric chorus. I'm sure people are going to love it."
Ronan can't wait to hit the road and after his UK dates he will be heading to Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Asia, but admits he does sometimes miss the "carnival" atmosphere that comes with touring with his group Boyzone.
He explained: "Touring on my own is different sonically, I have a different band, my backing band and Boyzone's band is slightly different. I love what I do solo and of course I love what I do with Boyzone - it's a different experience with Boyzone as it's a bit of a carnival on stage. I love touring with the lads."
Tickets for the UK dates of the tour go on sale at BookingsDirect.com and RonanKeating.com from February 12.
'Time Of My Life' - Ronan's tenth studio album - will be released the same day.
