According to the former's spokeswoman, rumours that George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley are reuniting for a one off gig to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the release of their first hit with Wham are baseless and completely untrue.
The Mirror had recently posted the article claiming that an 'insider' had revealed, "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" in relation to the so-called 'one-off pop extravaganza'. The insider had apparently also added, "everybody is getting really excited about it".
Well, sorry to disappoint you 'everybody' but George's spokeswoman told the Guardian that there was no truth in the comments surrounding the 'Rap' release anniversary, however, George Michael did tell The Mirror that he will celebrate by releasing his new single 'White Light'. "I dreamed of a career as a singer/songwriter from an early age but never could I have known I'd still be here 30 years later, with much more music to give", he added. The pop duo split in 1986 after Michael decided he wanted to move away from his teen fan-base and attract a more sophisticated audience. They did, however, release a final single and album and performed at Wembley for the last time.
