Bros Reunion


bros-top

British boy band Bros have announced they are reuniting in 2017 after more than two decades. Brothers Matt and Luke Goss will join forces at London’s O2 Arena on 19 August 2017 to mark the band’s 30th anniversary – exactly 28 years since they performed their mammoth concert at Wembley Arena in 1989.

Matt and Luke confirmed the news at a press conference in London on 5 October hosted by Emma Willis.

Sharing his excitement to share the stage with his twin brother, Matt told IBTimes UK: “Music is a tumultuous place but it’s kept me safe in many ways and just to be on-stage with my brother tops everything. “It’s something we’ve been trying to get together for 20 years and to have my brother sitting here is an amazing feeling. I honestly didn’t think this was ever going to happen.”

Luke, who has forged a successful acting career in Hollywood, added: “Movies are not as glamorous as you think. It’s been a beautiful experience but this for me is a dream come true. It’s something I wanted to do at the right level and I think the fans deserve something that would stand up today. I’m like a big kid right now, I’m pinching myself. I’m deeply proud of the band and the fans who have turned up today, it’s humbling.” Dashing hopes of a new album, Luke explained: “We’re going to honour the songs and some of the key sounds. At this stage, other than my brother’s new record which I think is wonderful, but because it’s been so long, I don’t want to populate the show with new stuff. It needs to be a moment to come together. If it was to ever happen again then maybe so but at this point it’s a show that people are familiar with.”

At the height of their fame, Bros sold 17 million records and performed 19 shows at Wembley Arena including their 19 August 1989 date which attracted an audience of 77,000. Forming in 1987, the band rode high with a string of hit singles and albums but the brothers parted ways in 1992.

Addressing any nerves he may have, Luke said: “When you’re younger you think, ‘Where are the 70,000 people?’ As I get older I’m more conscious and very respectful of it. By the time we get there, we’ll be so prepared that we’ll just want to get out there and do it. Right now I’m extremely aware of what’s ahead of us but it’s a good excitement and a good nervousness.”

However, a confident Matt said: “I’m not [nervous] at all, I love it. I do so many shows a year. We’re just very well aware of our creative energy and force together. We have one interest and that is to better what we’ve done in the past.”

He also stated: “We don’t need to do this reunion but we wanted to.”

    I feel gratitude? I’ve seen an interview about the reunion. And I am a mother of 2 boys: Matt 14 and Luke 8. It is quite hard to support their choices and my older wants to stay on stage (singing, dancing, acting) and also is interesting in clothes. Well, I am a single mum and I want all the best for them. You helped me to realize that I just want them to be happy. Sorry I am not your fan (I am old fashioned: no TV and mostly listen to classical music) but you inspired me in a different way and that is amazing.

    Dearest Matt (and Luke),

    I’m STILL pinching myself that #BROSareback ??? I’d all but given up hope! I’m so SO excited and feel like I’m 15 again!

    #AussieBrosettes can only pray that the tour is extended to Australia. Your second biggest audience is SCREAMING for dates. If there was any way that I could have been there in August I would already have tickets booked, but alas – it’s just not possible, for so many reasons.

    In a short space of time and with little media coverage, a small group of us have gathered nearly 300 like minded #Brosettes and #MGA from all corners of Australia, simply through social media.

    With publicity, thousands more will become aware. A successful tour of Australia Is a fait accompli!

    WE LOVE YOU! Please come and visit us! We will roll out the red carpet and show you a damn good time! ?

    I’m loving the nostalgia the reunion has pulled up sadly couldn’t get in to get tickets for the 19th but going on the 20th and can’t wait I do wonder though if matt and luke wanted this to be as authentic (I hope that’s the word ) to their bro2 concert y did they choose o2 and not Wembley then it would have been same date same day same place and would hold thousands more than the o2 can I’m not moaning just asking

    WOW. Great memories of chasing the “boys” all over he place. So happy for them they brought a lot of joy into many many lives, you cant help but smile when you see them. when I told my old brossette friend that we have to go see them, I also told her that just maybe I may want to have the bros flag draped across my coffin lol (that was one of my teenage requests should I meet my maker) can’t wait to see them….. bless em, and their mother so tolerant of us brossettes outside her house. Nowadays they would call it stalking lol. OH and sorry Brother Beyond band… I slated you on behalf of Bros, defending their honour x x?

    Wow how exiting I can’t wait for this already got my tickets and booked hotel!! I’m like ‘The cat among the pigeons’ right now and have always been ‘madly in love’ with Bros. When they said ‘I quit’ this was ‘too much’ for the fans as they have always been ‘ten out of ten’. Now I’ve spent my ‘money’ to get the hottest tickets in town and will ‘try’ to contain myself until then but ‘I’ll count the hours’ until the O2 as I’m like a kid with a ‘chocolate box’ right now. ‘It’s a jungle out there’ in the music business but Bros asked ‘when will I be famous’ and 30 years later they’re still rocking it!!!

    Now it’s ‘the time’ to get ‘push’ back to number one!!!
