I hope the article in the Daily Mail is accurate:
They (George and Andrew) remain close friends who talk regularly on the phone. Occasionally locals will hear the whirring blades of George’s private helicopter as it lands on the fields of the farm to see his old pal. The last time… was shortly before Christmas, when he came to discuss the possibility of a Wham! reunion.
On this occasion, George had hoped his former partner would join him on stage during a series of concerts at Wembley Arena in December, an offer Ridgeley almost accepted, pulling out at the last minute, citing nerves.
This time around, it seems, things are different, with Andrew finally bowing to pressure and agreeing to take part in what he has apparently stated firmly is a ‘final, final fling.’
So, as I say, I hope the story is true. There is a huge amount of affection for Wham! in the minds of the public; and I suspect it would mean a lot to George to be back on stage with his old friend…
