The Bros comeback is less than a week old, but it’s already a qualified hit. 

The first date of the boyband’s return to the stage this August is the fastest-ever sellout for any Live Nation U.K.-produced show at London’s O2 Arena, the concerts giant has announced.  

The show sold-out last Friday night in just seven seconds, the BBC reports, prompting the rollout of a seven-date national arena trek including a second show at the O2. 

The British group last week announced a surprise reunion a quarter century after they last impacted their homeland’s sales charts. The act -- comprising twins Matt and Luke Goss and Craig Logan (who won’t be part of the reunion) -- landed eight top 10 singles in the U.K., led by the Push single “I Owe You Nothing” which led the chart in 1987. Their last charting effort came in 1991 with "Try," which managed a peak of No. 27.
