CONNECTED BY BIRTH,

SEPARATED BY INDUSTRY,

REUNITED FOR THE GIG OF A LIFETIME

In the 1980s, "Bros" were one of the biggest bands in the world - for 15 minutes.

 

Having sold out stadiums around the world, they were the youngest to this day to play Wembley and their "Push" album went to Number 1 in over 20 countries, selling 10 million copies worldwide. The rise and fall of Bros was meteoric.

 

This film charts twins Matt and Luke Goss's reunion 28 years on, having hardly spoken and not played together since their split. With an incredibly fractured relationship and only 3 weeks to go until sell-out gigs at The O2 London, will they be able to put their history aside and come together as brothers to play the show of their lives?

 

A raw and emotional look into the aftermath of fame and the re-connection between two twins torn apart by their past.

THE RESPONSE

With the average person spending what amounts to an entire day a week online, the success of a show today lies in its online afterlife.

 

As well as viewers urging their friends and families to catch up on BBC iPlayer, many sought to spread the word to their followers. From Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, to Edgar Wright, Al Murray and many more in between, the Bros documentary was the talk of Twitter even weeks after its broadcast, with the main appeal coming not from the band’s musical legacy but rather their emotional journey and the resulting pearls of wisdom along the way.

 

One fan even took the time to rewatch the documentary and capture the best, most shareable quotes for all to enjoy - a post which has been shared on facebook almost 10,000 times.
