Eighties pop wunderkinds George Michael and Andrew Ridgley will reunite as Wham! for a special concert this Christmas as part of Michael's solo world tour.
"George is thrilled that Andrew's agreed to perform," a source told Britain's Sunday Mirror. "It was something George had thought about for a long time. He couldn't be happier and can't wait for the gig." Michael often squashed rumors of a potential reunion in the past due to Ridgley's refusal to participate.
Michael and Ridgley have not performed together since Wham! staged its final concert at London's Wembley Stadium in 1986. While Michael has gone on to have a successful solo career, along with recent highly publicized run-ins with the law, Ridgley has stayed out of the public eye and the music industry. (The Advocate)
