'When Will I Be Famous?' duo are back
Eighties boyband Bros have reunited to play a huge UK show.
The group’s two most famous members – twins Matt and Luke Goss – will team up again to headline London’s 02 Arena on August 19, 2017. Tickets go on general sale at 11am on October 7.
Bros formed in 1987 and are mostly known for their huge hit ‘When Will I Be Famous?’. Their last gig together was in 1989 when they played in front of 77,000 people at the old Wembley Stadium.
“The most memorable moments for me in Bros so far is Wembley Stadium and without question our final global tour,” Matt Goss says.
“Both of these experiences were just with Luke and myself. As the lead singer of the band, my musical connection has always been with Luke. Bros is Matt and Luke.”
“Bros has been part of my life for 30 years,” Luke Goss said. “I’m deeply proud of it. Our biggest show was at Wembley Stadium, Bros Into Summer, it was just Matt and I so I feel comfortable saying with great pride that Matt and I are Bros.”
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.
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 played a one-off solo show at Wembley Arena on 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.
