20 Jun UPDATE: Denied! Wham! Featuring George Michael Set To Return 30 Years After 1st Hit?
Until George Michael tweets about it, I don’t believe it. BUT, news is circulating this morning that Wham! is set to reunite for….ONE NIGHT ONLY…around George Michael’s new single “White Light” at the end of June.
Wham consisted of George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley til the group broke up in 1986 and George Michael’s solo career took off.
This is all coming from “The Daily Mirror” which is why I’m not so sure about the story. They did break the story a few years ago of George and his boyfriend splitting although George denied it and fans attacked me on Twitter, but the story did indeed turn out to be true.
“White Light” is set for release June 29th and is a song about the illness last year that almost killed him. Also, it is 30 years since “Wham! Rap” was a hit in the UK, the band’s first hit.
The source claims George and Andrew feel it is one of those now or never moments and will most likely be a one-off show. Yea, we don’t really see people clamoring for a Wham! world tour to hear Andrew do back-up vocals to “Everything She Wants” anytime soon.
Were you ever a Wham! fan? Were you a bigger Wham! fan than George Michael? Harvey Levin, that question is for you too, buddy!-DocFB
UPDATE: George Michael’s reps state there is no truth to the reunion.
