Boyzone star to return to Ireland for talks with wife Yvonne

Ronan Keating took to the stage for the first time since his split from wife Yvonne over the weekend.

The couple announced their separation last week after the Boyzone star allegedly had an affair with backing dancer Francine Cornell, 26.

Ronan, 33, looked emotional as he performed at the SkyDance festival in Zurich.

‘Thank you, until the next time,’ he told the crowd as he ended his set. ‘Life truly is a rollercoaster.’

Ronan – who is still wearing his wedding ring – did not leave his hotel other than to go to the gig during the trip.

‘It’s been really hard for Ronan doing the concerts,’ his rep tells the Daily Star. 

‘He had an obligation for Swiss television channel SF1 to do it.’ 

Ronan is expected to return to Ireland today to meet with Yvonne, 36, for reunion talks. 

He has cancelled all other work commitments.  

The couple are parents to Jack, 11, Marie, 9, and Ali, 4.
