Wham! to Reunite for First Time in 20 Years

WhamIt’s been two decades since George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley called it quits at a concert called “The Final” at Wembley Stadium, but Michael told the UK’s Sunday Mirror that Ridgeley has agreed to join him for a one-off concert this Christmas in London.

Also joining the duo will be their backup singers Pepsi and Shirley.

Said the paper’s source: “George is thrilled that Andrew’s agreed to perform. It was something George had thought about for a long time. He couldn’t be happier and can’t wait for the gig.”

Wham had 10 top ten hits in Britain in four years.

Michael recently began his first concert tour in 15 years, kicking off in Barcelona and making headlines with an oversized blow-up doll of George Bush being fellated by a British bulldog.

At right, a little reminder of then and now. And below, one of their hits, that is lesser-known to Americans, “Club Tropicana” along with the U.S. smash “Careless Whisper” in which George demonstrates what a gay man looks like pretending to seduce a woman.
