A NEW show is coming to Liverpool’s Epstein Theatre, featuring the very best of George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley in The Best of WHAM! on Friday 11 May.
It is 37 years since the pop duo formed one of the most enduring groups of the 80s. In four short years WHAM! sold more than 28 million records, topping the charts with three albums, four number one singles and eleven top ten hits.
They featured in the Live Aid concert of 1985 and were the first western pop group to ever tour in China.
The Best of WHAM! includes all those greatest hits, a few B side favourites and a couple of early George Michael bonus songs.
This brand new concert show stars Craig Webb, performing as George Michael. Craig made his TV debut on Gary Barlow’s talent search Let It Shine, which aired live in February 2017 on BBC1. He made it to the quarter finals, where he performed with Busted
