Gerard Joling and Gordon back in De Toppers

Singers Gerard Joling and Gordon are to rejoin the Dutch ‘super group’ De Toppers turning the trio into a foursome, manager Benno de Leeuw announced in the Telegraaf.

Joling quit the popular singing group, known for their extravagant stadium shows and hit medleys, in
November last year after a string of arguments with Gordon.
Gordon then left in September saying he doubted he could fulfil the group’s creative needs.
The Toppers, which now consists just of René Froger and Jeroen van der Boom, represented the Netherlands somewhat unsuccessfully at the last Eurovision Song Contest.
