Freedom! A Tribute To George Michael & Wham!

FREEDOM! A TRIBUTE TO GEORGE MICHAEL & WHAM! at The Fleece Fri 4 October 2019 from 07:00 pm

International tribute artiste Wayne Dilks has been performing as George Michael for almost 20 years. After an appearance on ITV's Stars in their eyes,  Wayne decided to become a full-time tribute performer to the global Superstar.

His amazing show is a celebration of 35 years of hit records. Wayne takes you on a journey from George’s early years with Wham through to his successful solo career. Performing those everlasting hits such as Club Tropicana, Wake me up before you go-go, I’m your man, Faith, Fast love and Outside. (Complete with L.A cop uniform as seen on stars in their eyes!) 

Not forgetting the romantics, his tribute would not be complete without the timeless ballads like Careless Whisper, A Different Corner and Don’t let the sun go down on me.

Wayne's performance as George Michael is so uncanny and so true that the Stars in their eyes producers invited Wayne to perform his tribute on their 9-week live tour 2004 to great success.

Wayne has appeared on countless radio stations for interviews in the UK and abroad and appeared on ITV's Loose women in 2011 as a birthday surprise for presenter Kate Thornton. 

In the last couple of years his tribute show as reached new heights with shows in USA and Russia. In December 2014 on the 30th anniversary of the Wham! hit "Last Christmas" he performed in Saas Fee, Switzerland which was the location for the iconic 1984 video.

In February 2017 Wayne became the co-founder, producer and lead singer of "Faith the George Michael Legacy" and performed over 200 sell-out shows in the UK alone.

Wayne left "Faith the George Michael Legacy" show in October 2018 and shortly after he set up a new show called - Freedom!'19.

Both visually and vocally, Wayne Dilks is highly regarded by many George Michael fans as their favourite tribute artiste.  A true likeness to the greatest singer/songwriter of his generation.

The Fleece, 12 St Thomas St, Bristol, BS1 6JJ.

Unless otherwise stated this is an all ages venue (under 16s must be accompanied by a adult)

Since The Blue Aeroplanes acquired The Fleece in May 2010 it has been rescued from eternal damnation as a "once great" and turned into "one of the best venues in the UK"

Relaxed atmosphere, a massive bar that is never more than 2 deep and an outside smoking/drinking/chatting area. Towns with huge arenas and stadiums would probably kill to have a venue like the Fleece in their midst.

There was a time when we'd have said the days of seeing a big band in such a small venue are gone but the hard work put in by the Aeroplanes coupled with the prestige that surrounds The Fleece means that those days are well and truly back.

A massive refurbishment at the start of 2013 means the venue can now claim to have "luxurious" toilets (at least in live music venue terms!)

With the demolition of the main entrance lobby and the installation of larger toilets the capacity has now increased from 330 to 450.
Despite being a national touring circuit venue, The Fleece regularly books local bands. If you'd like a gig email gigs@thefleece.co.uk for more details.
