Bros continue their comeback with Cork and Belfast shows

Eighties pop sensation Bros have announced that they'll continue their comeback with two Irish concerts, one in Cork and the other in Belfast.

The duo with play Live at the Marquee on June 26 and at Botanic Gardens, Belfast on June 27.

Matt and Luke Goss performed their comeback after nearly 30 years last year at two sold-out O2 London Arena shows. Prior to the O2 concerts, they had not played together since Wembley Stadium on August 19, 1989 when they performed to 77,000 fans.

Propelled by their classic smash hit ‘When Will I Be Famous’, BROS ruled the world from 1987-1992.

During that time, they rewrote the pop history books by playing 19 consecutive dates at Wembley Arena, along with being the youngest band to ever headline the venue.

They were also one of the first to have a pay-per-view live televised show.

Since then both Matt and Luke have achieved tremendous success in their respective music and film careers.

Matt began his solo career in 1995 and since then has sold over 5 million albums, performed at his Las Vegas residency at Caesar’s Palace and now at The Mirage for over seven years.

He has headlined Wembley Arena, The Royal Albert Hall, the London Palladium and The Sydney Opera House and played at The White House.

Luke is enjoying a hugely successful acting and directing career in both film (Hellboy 2, Blade 2, The Man,Traffik, Deathrace 2 and 3) and TV (Red Widow and Emmy award-winning mini-series Frankenstein), and more recently ‘The Last Boy’.

Tickets for BROS Live at the Marquee Cork and Live at Botanic Gardens go on sale this Monday 25 Feb and will be available from all usual Ticketmaster outlets Nationwide.
