Keith Duffy has reunited with Boyzone after he was hospitalised in Thailand with severe diarrhoea and vomiting.
The singer is back with the band after recovering from what he described as an “emotional roller coaster.”
He rejoined fellow bandmates Ronan Keating, Mikey Graham and Shane Lynch in Australia for their Adelaide show after battling a secondary bowel infection and viral infection.
He paid tribute to staff at the World Medical Hospital in Bangkok on Instagram yesterday morning, saying: “72 hours of a fever of 38/40 degrees With Diarrhea and Vomiting caused by contaminated food from bad hygiene in preparation!!
“The worst bad health experience of my life ! A secondary bowel infection and viral infection !
“These ladies our my savior They are saints Thank you ladies I love you !You’ve Given me a whole new perspective of selflessness I will never forget !
“God bless you all and thank you again !”
Boyzone chiefs confirmed Keith flew to Australia to be reunited with the lads.
They posted on Instagram: “After three long days in hospital in Bangkok, Keith is back on his feet and will be flying to Adelaide today to join the Boyz for their show there on Tuesday night.
“Big love and thanks to all the wonderful staff that have looked after him and for all the messages of support that you guys have sent out to him.”
Keith collapsed at Bangkok’s Thunder Dome arena last week.
Sources at the Thai venue said Keith suffered a “violent attack of diarrhoea and vomiting”.
Bandmates Ronan, Mikey and Shane were forced to go on stage as a trio – and had to continue onto Australia and perform their Perth gig without Keith as he remained in hospital.
