Grab your conkers, Bros have announced plans to tour the UK, following the viral success of their documentary ‘After The Screaming Stops’.

So far the duo have only confirmed one show in London, which will see them navigate The Embankment, Big Ben and all those cab drivers to get to Brixton Academy on 5 Jul.

‘After The Screaming Stops’ follows the Goss brothers as they prepared for their 2017 reunion tour of the UK, which was cut down to two shows due to “logistical issues”. After it was aired by the BBC over Christmas, and added to the iPlayer, word spread of its ‘This Is Spinal Tap’ similarities. Except, of course, Bros are a real band.

“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”, said Matt Goss on ITV’s ‘Good Morning Britain’ yesterday, as he and his brother announced the tour via satellite links from LA and Las Vegas. “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”.

Commenting on the reception to the film, Luke Goss added: “[Documentary making is] 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”.

In addition to the Brixton ‘homecoming’ show, more dates around the UK and internationally are expected to be announced. Then it’ll be off back H-O-M-E.
