WHAMANIA! is a live concert with a self-produced documentary on a big screen as a tribute to WHAM! Not just WHAM! is honoured, but the exceptional friendship between George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley is also highlighted. A friendship that leads to successes such as Club Tropicana, Wake Me Up Before You Go Go, Freedom, Last Christmas, I'm Your Man, The Edge Of Heaven, but also George Michael's first solo successes: Careless Whisper and A Different Corner.

WHAMANIA! is a 12-piece band that revives the glory years of George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley, including horns and the indispensable presence of Pepsi & Shirlie. Club Tropicana's full-length show marks the 40th anniversary of the band's debut album Fantastic, released on July 1, 1983 by WHAM!

George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley score with WHAM! a total of five #1 hits in England and four in the Netherlands, including two solo songs by George Michael. For years, George and Andrew have been indispensable on the Top 10 charts, with hundreds of millions of fans worldwide and more than 30 million records sold. Later, Pepsi & Shirlie, apart from WHAM!, also scored two big top 10 hits themselves!

The role of George Michael will be played in WHAMANIA! performed by Jordan Roy, known for the TV programs Better Than Ever (with an emotional and moving performance), X-Factor (where he became runner-up with pop group Adlicious) and The Voice of Holland where he appeared in The Knock Outs the song The Edge of Heaven by WHAM! sang. Here an even greater love for George Michael arose, which was sealed with the solo theater tour Freedom. A musical tribute to George Michael, with which Jordan Roy visited forty Dutch theaters with his live band.

Bert van Gulik is responsible for the pre- and after-parties around WHAMANIA!. Beforehand, the DJ will perform the hits from the period from 1975 to 1982 projected on a large screen.
