Boyzone chat to Stephen Gately before each gig

Boyzone always speak to their late bandmate Stephen Gately before every gig they perform.

The No Matter What hitmakers still make sure their dear friend Stephen is remembered every day by speaking to him before each concert and putting a photograph of him on his old seat.

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, Keith Duffy said: ''We have a picture of Stephen in the quick change area where his seat would be. And we have a little group chat with him before we go on stage.''

Mikey Graham added: ''Every tour we do from here on there will be messages of Stephen.''

Meanwhile Ronan explained that Stephen has even come back as a butterfly, adding: ''After Steo passed a lot of us had experiences with butterflies. When we got to Doncaster there were three butterflies in the rehearsal studio fluttering around and one landed on my leg.

''It was the freakiest thing. It's like Steo was in the room, guiding us along and giving us strength.''
