Media invite appears to show the 'When Will I Be Famous?' duo are back
Eighties boyband Bros appear set to reform after 24 years apart.
A silhouette which looks to be twins Matt and Luke Goss accompanied a media invite announcing “The biggest reunion in pop”, which will be formally announced at a press conference in London next week (October 5).
Formed in 1987, Bros enjoyed hits including ‘When Will I Be Famous?’, ‘Drop The Boy’ and their sole No 1 single ‘I Owe You Nothing’ before founding bassist Craig Logan quit in 1989. Logan was popularly known as Ken at the time after Viz constantly spoofed him supposedly being the anonymous member of the band.
Ironically, Logan has gone on to enjoy a successful career behind-the-scenes in the music industry, managing the careers of artists including Dido, Anastacia and ex-JLS singer Aston Merrygold. From the silhouette invite, it appears Logan will not be part of the reunion.
After Logan’s departure, Bros released the album ‘Changing Faces’ in 1991 before splitting the following year.
Since the split, Matt Goss has gone on to become a successful swing-style singer in the US, where has a residency in Las Vegas. He has played in the UK more rarely, but plays a one-off solo show at Wembley Arena on Saturday (October 1).
Drummer Luke Goss has mainly focused on acting, appearing in films including Tekken and Interview With A Hitman. The brothers have enjoyed a friendly relationship for some time, with their professional reunion having been rumoured for several years.
