Teenage tears flowed yesterday as boy band Boyzone made an early getaway from an autograph-signing session described by fans as shambolic. Distraught teenage girls fought back tears as they complained at missing the five singers, whose scheduled two-hour promotional appearance at HMV in Tsim Sha Tsui was brought forward and cut to just an hour. The boys then dashed to HMV's Causeway Bay store for a quick appearance. Fans said they lost the autographed CDs they had queued so feverishly for because security staff told them to hand over the covers, then gave them to other fans. 'It was unfair,' said Erin Stoner, 12, who went from Peng Chau to the Tsim Sha Tsui store and missed her heroes after a mad dash to the Causeway Bay store with mother in tow. 'I'm a big fan - I like their music and I really like them too. But if they come to Hong Kong again I think they should stick to their schedule.' The promotion was organised by HMV and Polygram Records, which sold copies of the Irish boy band's latest album, Where We Belong, with coupons that promised fans a chance to get close to their heroes. HMV marketing manager Sandra Low said the initial plan to hold the session from 4pm at Tsim Sha Tsui was changed because of crowd-control concerns. 'We did everything we could to advertise the change,' she said. 'With events like this it's hard to stick to an initial schedule.'
