The two brothers split up after only six years, and Matt focused on his solo career. “There is life after Bros and fame after a recording which hit no. 1. It was an amazing moment, but I have moved on, I am glad to be a man that can entertain a diverse audience”, said Matt.

Dressed elegantly, in a suit and bow tie, his hair well done, Matt Goss throws a show every time he picks up the microphone. “It is an honor for me to be part of the rich history of Caesars Palace entertainment. The Las Vegas audience is extremely kind to me and I am excited about my show continuing to grow, which allows me to share my passion with the fans”, declared Goss in a press release.
