Bros to reunite after 25 years

Matt and Luke Goss, the twin brothers who fronted 1980s trio Bros, are reuniting the band after 25 years.
The siblings and bandmate Craig Logan rose to the top of the U.K. charts after releasing their debut album in 1988, becoming one of the biggest U.K. acts of the 1980s.
Their popularity peaked with Bros in 2 Summer, a 1989 gig in front of 77,000 people at London’s Wembley Stadium, but within three years the group had split up after the failure of their third album.
Now Bros are planning a comeback gig at London’s O2 Arena on 19 August next year (17), marking 30 years since their emergence and taking place 28 years to the day after their Wembley gig, their last major live performance together.
Craig, the band’s original bass guitarist, who quit the band before the Wembley concert, will not take part in the reunion.
“Bros has been part of my life for 30 years,” Luke Goss says. “I’m deeply proud of it. Our biggest show was at Wembley Stadium, BROS In 2 Summer, it was just Matt and I so I feel comfortable saying with great pride that Matt and I are Bros.”
Speaking to reporters at an event confirming the reunion on Wednesday (05Oct16), he adds, “I’ve always wanted it to happen in my heart. But I wanted it to be the right time.”
Since Bros split up, the twins have enjoyed quite different careers, with Matt focusing on solo musical projects and Luke starring in a number of films including Hellboy II: The Golden Army and Blade II.
The brothers say they are still on good terms with Craig, who has embarked on a successful career as a record executive, working alongside stars including Robbie Williams, Tina Turner, Garth Brooks and Pink, since leaving the band.
