Members of Irish boybands Boyzone and Westlife have teamed up to form a new supergroup called Boyzlife.

Boyzone's Keith Duffy and former Westlife singer Brian McFadden will perform both bands' greatest hits on a nationwide tour in the United Kingdom this year.

The project, funded by Hilton hotel group, will see them performing at Hilton hotels around the country.

While its just a duo for now, the pair hopes that more of their bandmates will join them soon.

"We all had a chat, the lads. We said it would be amazing," said McFadden in an interview with The Sun.

"Nine of us Irish lads on a tour bus together, going round the world together. It would be absolute carnage. We all get on so well so you never know. We would have so much fun on tour."

McFadden left Westlife in 2004 for family reasons.

The remaining four members have continued the band without him until they disbanded in 2012.

Duffy was a member of Boyzone from 1993-2000.

He pursued a career in the film and television industry after they disbanded in 2000.

Duffy and McFadden said they are open to the idea of writing new music and creating a reality series documenting the reunion.
