BROS REUNITED AND RETURNING TO AUSTRALIA FOR ONE SPECIAL EVENT SHOW ON SATURDAY 4 NOVEMBER!

Australian BROS fans demanded it and now TEG DAINTY can confirm the most highly anticipated pop reunion tour of the decade will visit Australia!

BROS will play a special Australian show in Sydney on Saturday 4 November at Qudos Bank Arena.  Tickets will go on sale on Friday 5 May at 12noon through Ticketek.  

A Telstra pre-sale starts at 9am on Tuesday 2 May through to 9am on Thursday 4 May. Go to telstra.com/music for details.

This exciting event marks 29 years to the day since BROS played the Sydney Entertainment Centre in the height of BROSMANIA.

When BROS toured Australia in 1988 their presence caused pandemonium with thousands of fans turning up at airports, instore appearances and hotels to catch a glimpse of the pop superstars.  Reminiscing of this time Matt Goss said “One of the most memorable moments for me in BROS was our Australian tour, we were so welcomed, it felt like home and the fans were fantastic, we hope to see them all in Sydney this November.”

“BROS has been part of my life for 30 years,” Luke Goss said. “I’m deeply proud of BROS and our 1988 tour of Australia with thousands of fans greeting us every step of the way was an absolute highlight.”

Brothers Matt and Luke Goss have not played together since 77,000 fans packed into Wembley Stadium on August 19, 1989.

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

In that time they rewrote the pop history books:

  • BROS played 19 shows at Wembley Arena
  • They were the youngest band to ever headline Wembley Stadium
  • Their debut album ‘Push’ sold 10 million copies worldwide
  • The album was number one in 20 countries
  • Australia was the band’s biggest market outside of the UK
  • BROS had three Top 10 hits in Australia
  • They toured Australia in 1988 and smashed sales records with sold out shows

Prior to their Australian date BROS will play 2 shows at London’s O2 Arena in August which sold out in just seconds.

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, played a Las Vegas residency at Caesar’s Palace and headlined Wembley Arena earlier this year. Luke is enjoying a hugely successful acting career in both film (Hellboy 2, Blade 2, The Man, Deathrace 2&3) and TV (Red Widow and Emmy award winning mini-series Frankenstein). His directorial debut ‘Your Move’ will bow in select theaters October 2017.

Both Matt and Luke remain friendly with Craig Logan who left the band in 1989.
