MUSIQUE - Ah les années 80, ses coupes de cheveux improbables, ses habits colorés et les rythmes chaloupés de Wham! Portés par une rumeur relayée par le quotidien britannique Daily Mirror (lien en anglais), les fans ont cru un instant le duo, formé par George Michael et Andrew Ridgeley, se reformait pour ses 30 ans. C'était "le moment ou jamais" selon une source proche des pop stars.

"Ils ne feront sûrement pas une longue tournée, et ne sortiront pas de nouvelles chansons, continue le proche du groupe. Mais ils veulent célébrer l'évènement avec un énorme concert. Et une fête encore plus grosse."

Las! ce n'était qu'une rumeur infondée, comme l'a expliqué un porte-parole de George Michael à un autre quotidien britannique, le Guardian.

Pas de reformation en perspective donc mais George Michael devrait bien profiter de la date anniversaire de la sortie du premier titre du boys band (Wham Rap) pour sortir en effet un nouveau single -White Light- le 29 juin prochain.

Après la séparation du duo, en 1986, Andrew Ridgeley a retrouvé une vie plus calme. Il vit depuis avec sa compagne Keren Woodward, du groupe Bananarama. George Michael, lui, a continué sa carrière. Il vient tout juste de se remettre d'une grave pneumonie.

Le chanteur sera à Paris à l'Opéra Garnier le 9 septembre pour sa tournée Symphonica.

  • Wham! - Bad Boys 1983

    Wham! - Bad Boys 1983 Dear Mummy , dear Daddy you have plans for me Oh yeah, I was your only son. And long before this baby boy could count to three You knew just what he would become. Run on off to school your child your man grows up a fool Run on off to school. When you tried to tell me what to do I just shut my mouth and smiled at you one thing that I know for sure Bad boys stick together never sad boys Goods guys they make rules for fools so get wise. Dear Mummy, Dear Daddy now I'm nineteen as you see I'm handsome, tall and strong So what the hell gives you the right to look at me as if to say: Hell what went wrong? Where were you last night? You look as if you had a fight. Where were you last night? Well I think that you may just be right But don't try keep me in tonight 'cause I'm big enough to break down the door Bad boys stick together never sad boys Goods guys they make rules for fools so get wise. Boys like you are bad through and through Still girls like me always seem to be with you. We can't help but worry you're in such a hurry Mixing with the wrong boys playing with the wrong toys Easy girls and late nights cigarettes and love bites. Why do you have to be so cruel? You're such a fool. Bad boys stick together never sad boys Goods guys they make rules for fools so get wise. Bad boys stick together never sad boys Goods guys they make rules for fools so
