Wham! were an English musical duo formed by members George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley in 1981. They were briefly known in the United States as Wham! UK due to a naming conflict with an American band. Wham! sold more than 30 million certified records worldwide from 1982 to 1986.
Their 1984 single ‘Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go’ was the first of many US & UK number one’s achieved by the band.
Their long-time backing singers ‘Pepsi & Shirlie’ had a number 2 UK hit with their song ‘Heartache’.
In the Spring of 1986, Wham announced the band were to split and George Michael embarked on an epic solo music career. Andrew was seen to join him on stage a handful of times over the next few years.
