No careless whispers for singer Ben Evans who is stepping into George Michael’s footsteps in a new theatre show recreating the feel-good pop of Wham!

Ben started his career at the age of eight performing in roles including Gavroche in Les Miserables, Oliver and The Artful Dodger in Oliver!

He appeared in a number of TV programmes including lead roles in: Casualty, Teachers, Waking The Dead and creating the role of Charlie Jenkins in BBC Wales hit comedy High Hopes.

His West End performances include Mamma Mia! as well as the role of Sam Wise Gamgee in The Lord Of The Rings.

Now Ben pulls back his jacket cuffs and, singing with a live band, becomes George Michael, in a non-stop 80s party. He will be performing Wham!’s greatest hits such as Wake Me Up Before You Go Go, Freedom and I’m Your Man along with some of the songwriter’s solo numbers tonight at 7.30pm.

Thirty seven years ago George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley formed the pop duo, and in four short years Wham! sold more than 28 million records, topped the charts with three albums, four number one singles and eleven top ten hits.

They featured in the Live Aid concert of 1985, and were the first western pop group to ever tour in China.

Sweeney Entertainments, co-founded by Julie and Peter Sweeney, are touring The Best of Wham! theatre show in the UK.

Julie said: “We are thrilled to be presenting this new show – this is a non-stop Wham! party that is sure to leave audiences singing and dancing the whole way home!”
