This morning, BROS confirmed they’re reuniting for a one-off show at London’s O2 Arena next August – and pledge that they’ll give fans a show worthy of the wait they’ve had to endure since the band last performed together at Wembley almost 30 years ago.
“The most memorable moments for me in BROS so far is Wembley Stadium and without question our final global tour,” said Matt Goss this morning. “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.”
The announcement came this morning at a press conference hosted by TV’s Emma Willis – a self-confessed Brossette – as Matt and Luke chatted about their past successes and their excitement about the forthcoming show.
Propelled by their classic hit When Will I Be Famous, BROS ruled the world from 1987 until 1992. In that time they rewrote the pop history books, by playing 19 shows at Wembley Arena, becoming the youngest band to ever headline at Wembley, seeing their debut album go seven times platinum and reaching No.1 in 20 countries.
“BROS has been part of my life for 30 years,” Luke Goss added. “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.”
Emma Willis ended the chat by presenting the pair with a scrapbook she made aged 12 full of snippets of the pair from old magazines, liner notes and newspapers. “There’s even a picture of your backing dancer in there and I’ve written “Yuck, I hate her,” over it,” she told the crowd.
