Many will argue what decade gave us the best music, we’ll never get the definite answer. The 1980’s had no shortage of pop icons, Wham! was one of them and in a few weeks we get to see their documentary.
Today Netflix release the film’s official Trailer of it’s release on the channel. Inviting us back to Club Tropicana, the story of George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley who would firm the band in 1982. Still in their teens, best friends pop sensations who would conquer the world, hit after hit. But why was the dream all over four years later?
You get a good glimpse of what to expect and that the boys were also not on the same level when it came to creativity. Like all docs on musicians, how much do we already know?
In 1982, the best of friends and still teenagers – George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley as WHAM! set out to conquer the world. By June of 1986 they played their very last gig at Wembley Stadium having done exactly that.
Now for the very first time, told in their own words, the amazing story of how in four years they dominated the charts around the world with timeless and classic pop songs. Hit after hit – Club Tropicana, Wake Me Up Before You Go Go, Freedom, I’m Your Man and of course Last Christmas.
Their time in the spotlight was white-hot, becoming the very first western pop act to play in China.
It was a time that both encapsulated and epitomised not just their youth, but also those of the many millions of fans that adored them.
With unprecedented access to both George and Andrew’s personal archive including remarkable and never-before-seen footage, alongside rare, candid and previously unheard interviews, WHAM! charts their incredible journey from school friends to superstars.
Wham! will be in UK cinemas for one night only on 27th June and on Netflix from 5th July.
