In the 80's my sister and I spent many a time pretending to be Pepsi and Shirley (the backing singers from Wham). We were totally besotted with George Michael, he was our first Pop Idol and we were totally besotted with him. We knew all the dance moves and song lyrics.

On 25th December 2016 the devastating news that George Michael had passed away at only aged 53 was shocking and the worst end to a crazy year where we lost many legends. 

Faith - George Michael The Legacy is currently touring and we were lucky enough for them to visit Crewe Lyceum Theatre. The 2 hour show is packed full of George's best loved hits including Outside, Freedom, Careless Whisper and Faith, and also including my favourite Wham! songs. Wayne Dilks performs exactly like George and has his dance moves and mannerisms to perfection, his voice was spellbounding. The backing singers Sofia Wilks and Annette Campbell were superb, as was the very talented Saxophonist and Flutist Jo Ashcroft. The whole production was professional and all the musicians were amazing. 

It was a celebration of George Michael's talent and was both emotional and uplifting. Dilks had us up out of our seats singing and clapping along and then we were just captivated with his heartfelt renditions of Jesus to a Child and Different Corner. 

The atmosphere in the Theatre was buzzing and I would highly recommend to any fans of George Michael.
