Hanging with Pepsi and Shirlie at George Michael’s Symphonica gig!

Posted by Dean Piper On October 29th, 2011

George Michael was on great form for his Symphonica opening night gig at the Royal Albert Hall this week. Geri Halliwell, Rupert Everett and the X Factor boys were all there too. But I felt like I was in Club Tropicana – I bagged a seat next to the original eighties icons Pepsi and Shirlie (with me above)! And Shirlie told me she’s still in touch with Wham band member Andrew Ridgeley – although a reunion will NEVER happen. Shirlie, who’s married to Martin Kemp these days, told me: “He has all the privacy he wants down in Cornwall and he’s really happy. He doesn’t want a part of it and you have to respect him for that.” I guess! By the way – you can celebrate the 25th anniversary of Wham and buy WHAM: The Final featuring all the hits from November 28.
