If you believe the reports in the Daily Mirror today, George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley are to reform as Wham!, 30 years after they released their debut single Wham Rap on June 29th, 1982.

The duo racked up a number of hit singles during the 80s, including Club Tropicana, Wake Me Up Before You Go Go, Last Christmas and I’m Your Man, and sold millions of album before deciding to go their separate ways in 1986. Andrew who played guitar, disappeared from the spotlight, while George went on to become a global solo superstar, one of the biggest of the 80s and 90s. Careless Whisper, Faith and I Knew You Were Waiting are just some of his huge hits during this period. He was also recognised by the Grammys and the Ivor Novello Awards.

The reported decision to get back together to put on a one-off performance or celebration, came as George’s new solo single, White Light (released on 29th June, 2012) coincides with the 30th anniversary of the group, so it seemed like the perfect time to give fans one last hurrah!

A source told the Mirror:

‘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, the Guardian newspaper’s website put up a rebuttal story hours after the Mirror story went live, saying that a spokesperson for George had denied any reunion was on the cards. Hmmm…. What do you think? Any truth to this story? And, would you go to a Wham! concert in 2012? I certainly would! But let us know what you think in the comments below!
