I am listening to Make It Big as I write and let's give credit where it is due. That is a terrific album and sure, Wham felt like a boy's boy band for girlie girls and closet cases, but really, "Careless Whisper"? That is the real deal.
In the terrible "Rock Of Ages" movie, they go out of their way to mock 1980s boy bands, but in all sincerity, Culture Club and Wham were better than any metal band of the 80s with the exceptions of Van Halen, Metallica and Guns N Roses. Just to put it all in perspective for you.
So I consider it tidings of great joy that George Michael's has announced a one off Wham concert and just wish he would do a tour proper. A source told the Mirror: "'George and Andrew have often said their 'Club Tropicana' days are well behind them.
"But seeing as their anniversary coincides with George releasing new material, it's one of those 'now or never' moments.'They probably won't do a long tour or release new material like Take That but they do want to commemorate the event with a big gig … And an even bigger party afterwards! 'Things are still in the early stages but everybody is getting really excited about it.''
Radio City or MSG? BOTH!!!
