FEATURING the very best of George, Andrew, Pepsi and Shirlie, a Wham! tribute band is coming to Weston-super-Mare next week.

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! concert show stars Ben Evans, performing as George Michael. Ben started his career at the age of eight performing in roles including Gavroche in Les Miserables, both the roles of Oliver and The Artful Dodger in Oliver!

His career has continued with appearances in a host of TV programmes including lead roles in: Casualty, Teachers, Waking The Dead and most notably, creating the role of Charlie Jenkins in BBC Wales hit comedy High Hopes which he starred in for six seasons.

Also appearing will be Jamie Corner as Andrew Ridgeley. Jamie was a contestant on BBC One’s prime time Let It Shine, after which he toured around the UK and Ireland with Take That’s The Band, the Musical.

With sensational vocals, choreography, costumes and an awesome live band, The Best of WHAM! is an authentic musical journey that truly recaptures the full Wham! experience.

This non-stop 80s party will get audiences singing and dancing to all the greatest hits including Wake Me Up Before You Go Go, Freedom and Im your Man.
