Matt and Luke Goss will perform as Bros in August 2017 for the first time in 28 years
Bros are reuniting for their first show in 28 years.
Brothers Matt and Luke Goss last played together as Bros - known for their huge hit 'When Will I Be Famous?' - at Wembley Stadium in August 19, 1989, and they will head back to the stage on the same date in 2017 at London's O2 Arena for a reunion concert.
Matt said: "The most memorable moments for me in Bros so far is Wembley Stadium and without question our final global tour.
"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."
Luke added: "Bros has been part of my life for 30 years. 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."
Bros were together from 1987 to 1992 and played 19 shows at Wembley back in their heyday, and were the youngest band to ever headline Wembley Stadium.
As well as 'When Will I Be Famous?', the group had hits with the likes of 'I Owe You Nothing' and released three studio albums, 'Push', 'The Time' and 'Changing Faces'.
They have since dropped three greatest hits records, with their final one, 'I Owe You Nothing - The Best of Bros', coming in February 2011.
Bros split in 1992 when their singles began to plunge in the charts and Luke called time on the group, which Matt has since admitted was "heart-breaking".
He previously said: "We felt we needed a break from each other. Luke to this day is still one of my best friends."
Matt, 48, has gone on to reinvent himself as a singer in Las Vegas, performing a residency at the city's Caesar's Palace.
Luke, 48, has forged a movie career which has seen him star in 'Blade 2', 'Hellboy 2' and TV mini-series 'Frankenstein'.
Their former band member Craig Logan departed the group in 1989 and will not be returning for the reunion.
