Former Boyzone member Shane Lynch has raised concerns about what he perceives as satanic influences in the stage shows of pop stars, including Taylor Swift. In an interview with Sunday World newspaper, Lynch expressed worry about visual elements such as "hoods up and masks on" and "fire ceremonies" in today's pop concerts.

Lynch, a committed Christian, emphasized that he believes there is more than just art involved, describing a hidden satanic and evil presence in current popular music, even down to the beats.

He admitted to stopping listening to certain music, citing the spiritual and emotional connection that music has and how it can affect one's spirit.

"Music attaches to your emotions. It has a connection to your spirit and how you feel," he said. "That's why I've stopped listening to those types of music myself because it doesn't suit my spirit."

The father-of-two added, "It 100 per cent has an effect on society. I think our society has never been worse in many areas, and it starts from our children.

The musician highlighted the significance of stage shows, asserting that some artists unknowingly incorporate satanic rituals in front of large audiences. Lynch specifically mentioned Taylor Swift, a globally renowned artist, and pointed out what he perceives as demonic rituals with pentagrams on the ground and other elements during her performances.

"You'll see a lot of hoods up and masks on and fire ceremonies. Even down to Taylor Swift — one of the biggest artists in the world — you watch one of her shows and she has two or three different demonic rituals to do with the pentagrams on the ground, to do with all sorts of stuff on her stage."

"It's coming in right at our children from the very beginning to get them to sway away from anything godly, anything controlled or disciplined. It's getting wilder and wilder out there for a reason."

He added, "Music is dangerous."

Boyzone was formed in Dublin in 1993 and became one of the biggest boy bands in the Nineties, achieving six UK number ones and nine in Ireland.
