Bros plotting comeback

Boy band Bros are to reform.

The 80s pop band - who are best known for their song ‘When Will I Be Famous?’ - are planning to do a one-off concert at London’s O2 Arena.

Luke Goss – who was joined in the group by twin brother Matt and third member Craig Logan - said: “We want to do a show, somewhere like the O2, and then say, ‘Thanks a lot, see ya!’

“If I can find a bunch of people – and Matt and I can see eye-to-eye with them on things we want to do – then, yes, we’re doing it.”

Luke, 41, is adamant the reunion will not be a permanent one.

He added: “We’d do a show that was amazing. I want it to stand up today. I don’t want it to be a nostalgia-only driven thing.”

Since the band split in 1992, Luke become an actor and has starred in several films including ‘Blade II’.

Matt continued to release music and also appeared on UK reality TV show ‘Hell’s Kitchen’, while Craig, who was once engaged to Dannii Minogue, is now the boss of a record label.

He left the band in 1989 and sued for unpaid royalties, later receiving £1m (€1m).
