George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley are planning a spectacular Wham! reunion show at London's new Wembley Stadium. The 80s pop duo are excitedly working on their comeback performance, 21 years after their last concert, 'The Finale', at the old Wembley Stadium in 1986. A source at the new 90,000-seat stadium said: "It would be a fantastic show. They're still very popular and we think they would fill Wembley out." George and Andrew are reportedly planning to fly to the US this summer to start recording tracks for a new album, with the possibility of a tour later.
George, 43, made his wishes of a reunion known last year, and asked Andrew to join him on stage at London's Wembley Arena last December. Andrew, 41 - who now lives a quiet life in Cornwall with his wife and son - pulled out at the last minute because he was too nervous. Since the band split, George has gone on to have a successful solo career. His debut album 'Faith' sold over 20 million copies worldwide.
