Bros Confirm London Comeback Show After Documentary Goes Viral
Bros have confirmed details of their London comeback show this summer after a BBC documentary hit refresh on the vintage pop duo's star status.
Bros: After The Screaming Stops aired on BBC Four in December, drawing comparisons to mockumentary This Is Spinal Tap and quickly went viral as a result of one-liners uttered by brothers Luke and Matt Goss.

It also attracted acclaim for its portrayal of the twin brothers' strained relationship and the somewhat bumpy journey to their comeback shows at London's O2 Arena in July 2017.
The pair announced details of their show and upcoming tour on Good Morning Britain on Monday morning.

With Matt speaking to the show from Las Vegas and Luke from Los Angeles, the twin brothers were asked how they felt about the reaction to the show.
"It was almost like going through therapy in front of a nation, I didn't realise there were so many unresolved issues between me and my brother," Matt, explained to the show's presenters Susannah Reid and Piers Morgan.
"I'd done 170 shows last year and having to come back into an environment, it was a really difficult thing.
"To have to do that in front of cameras - me and Luke are notoriously quite private people but we made a decision between the two of us to not have any rights to editing, and for us what you see is what you get."
Drummer and actor, Luke, added about documentary making: "It's a subjective art form. If you go into it thinking everybody's going to love it you're setting yourself up for a fall.
"There are some funny moments in the documentary for sure. There's lots of moments where Matt and I would laugh at this documentary, because you become a musician not to put on a shirt and tie everyday - it's a crazy business."
"I'm wearing a shirt and tie now Luke - is that a dig bro?" Matt asked.
Likewise... Sorry "certain newspaper" LOL that's the good thing about social media, you can't do what you did to us before. We are absolutely grateful and ecstatic about the response to our movie. Thanks everyone. https://t.co/xGFV2ZYuBE

"We're gonna do some shows. July 5 we're gonna play Brixton Academy," Luke said.
"Tickets will go on sale January 19 and there's gonna be more. We're gonna play some shows this year in the UK and around the world."
The 50-year-old twins will play a number of shows around in the UK starting at the Brixton Academy in July, with details yet to be announced.
It comes after 'unforeseen logistical circumstances' forced them to cancel dates in Newcastle, Nottingham and Birmingham. They only performed two shows at the O2 Arena in London.
Before that they had not played together since selling out Wembley Stadium in August 1989.
You can buy tickets here from 9am on Saturday, 19th January.
