George Michael - Careless Whisper: George Michael Denies Wham! Reunion Reports
George Michael has denied any rumors that Wham are to be getting back together after reports broke in the UK's Daily Mirror newspaper suggesting that he and Andrew Ridgeley were set to bring back one of the biggest pop groups of the past three decades for their 30th anniversary.
"George and Andrew have often said their Club Tropicana days are well behind them," an apparent insider told the newspaper "But seeing as their anniversary coincides with George releasing new material, it's one of those 'now or never' moments." Continuing, they'd added "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."
However, said source evidently isn't quite as close to the former band mates as they think they are, and Michael has since come out to the Guardian newspaper to deny that any such thing is happening. The star's party have said that Michael's commitment is to his new solo material and that he'll actually be celebrating their milestone by releasing his new single 'White Light'. Rumours of the pairs reunion are frequent, with the Mirror claiming that back in 2006 that Ridgeley was set to join Michael on stage in London, only to be beset by nerves.
