Brosettes rejoice – it sounds like the 80s pop heartthrobs could be reuniting.
They scored a string of massive hits with I Owe You Nothing, Drop The Boy and When Will I Be Famous, played Wembley Stadium and had millions of adoring fans across the world.
And 25 years after they called it a day, twins Matt and Luke Goss – but sadly without bassist Craig – are reportedly set to become Bros again for a £10 million European tour.
According to reports, singer Matt, 47, who has his own successful residency as a crooner at Caesars Palace Las Vegas, is expected to announce the comeback at his solo concert at Wembley on October 1.
Formed in 1986 Bros – from an abbreviation of the word ‘brothers’ -continued as a duo after Craig left the band in early 1989 with hits including Too Much, Chocolate Box and Madly in Love.
After Bros, who were famous for their ripped jeans and inspired fans to wear Grolsch bottle caps on their shoes, ended drummer Luke reinvented himself as an actor.
And Craig became a songwriter and producer.
Asked about the possibility of a Bros reunion Matt, who used to date Mossley TV presenter Melanie Sykes, previously told us during a visit to HMV Manchester in 2013: “Neither me, Craig or Luke do speculation well. If the right agent comes along promising the right show then who knows?
“But we went out on a high playing to 70,000 at Wembley, and we’d only do it if at that level again, to make it the best show for the fans.”
