George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley are to reunite Wham! like the good old days, planning to record new tracks for a new album this summer.
George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley are to reform Wham!.
The 80s pop duo, whose hits include 'Club Tropicana' and 'I'm Your Man', are
reportedly planning to fly out to the US this summer to start recording
tracks for a new album, with the possibility of a tour later.
George made his wishes for a reunion known last year, and asked Andrew to
join him on stage at his solo show at London's Wembley Arena last December.
However, Andrew pulled out at the last minute because he was too nervous.
A source said at the time: "Andrew was sick with nerves at the thought of
appearing on stage after all these years, he backed out."
Wham! split in 1986 and performed their last concert, 'The Finale', at the
now demolished Wembley Stadium, in London, in June of that year.
George has since enjoyed a phenomenally successful solo career. His debut
album 'Faith' sold over 20 million copies worldwide.
Andrew took a short break from pop after the band split but has continued to
write songs for other artists under various pseudonyms.
