The BZ20 Tour was a tour by Irish boy band Boyzone, celebrating the band's 20 years of existence. It included dates in England, Scotland, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines. A huge contribution to the background and lead vocals came from backing vocalist Jo Garland, who has sung with Ronan Keating in his solo ventures since 2001 and with Boyzone since 2008. Her vocals have often taken the place of vocals that band member Stephen Gately sang before his death.

Keith Duffy said that the group were planning another trek, as well as an album, in recognition of their 20 years in the spotlight. "We've plans in place for a tour and an album next year for the 20th anniversary – that's if people want to come and see us, We've a very loyal fan base that always come in their thousands. It's a nice set-up. We never broke up, so we can take time out to do our own thing, and then get back together when it suits".
In January 2014, it was announced that Boyzone would make their Forest Live debut that summer, in a continuation of the celebration of the BZ20 Tour.
