RONAN Keating was paid €130,000 to headline a music festival in Transylvania — but endured a horror journey to get there.

Local media say the Boyzone singer was given the hefty sum to be the star attraction at the Golden Deer event in the Romanian city of Brasov.

It is claimed Keating was paid far more than others playing at the gig on August 24, with the next biggest star, local artist Stefan Banica, getting €25,000.

But despite making a killing, the dad-of-four told his audience he nearly didn’t make it there.

Ronan said: “The guys from my band came here yesterday, but it took them four-and-a-half hours to come by car from Bucharest, so I said, ‘I won’t do that!’

“I rented a plane and flew. It only took me 40 minutes — but it was a much smaller plane than I would have imagined.”


He added: “I think I was never so scared in my life, especially when I came over the mountains.

“At one point, he decided to tilt the plane so I could look at the mountains better. It wasn’t a good idea.”

Laughing about the incident, Ronan praised the natural beauty of Romania, but joked that “he had his eyes closed almost all the time”.

He added: “But here I am, right and unharmed.”

When he eventually landed, Ronan made history by jetting into the city in Central Transylvania ringed by the Carpathian Mountains.

The local mayor was so thrilled about Keating being the first person to land in Brasov’s new airport, which has only recently been completed, he declared: “I consider this day a memorable one for the county administration and for all the people of Brasov.

“It is an honour and a joy for us that a star of the international music scene will be the first person to officially land on the runway of Brasov Ghimbav International Airport.”

When contacted by the Irish Sun about Ronan’s reported €130,000 payday over at the Romanian festival, a spokesman for the Dublin singer told us: “Ronan had a great gig in Brasov last weekend, but as contracted fees are always confidential, I’m not able to confirm any figures.”
