A George Michael tribute star hailed as ‘uncanny’ is heading to Viva Blackpool - and fans have ‘gotta have faith’ that he’s good.

Wayne Dilks appeared as George Michael in the 2002 series of Stars In Their Eyes, and was invited to join the show’s live tour two years later.

Now he’s on the road with his own eight-piece band, celebrating the late pop legend’s 35-year career in the Faith: The George Michael Legacy show, and recreating some of his biggest hits live on stage such as Wake Me Up Before You Go Go, I’m Your Man, Faith, Father Figure, Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me and many more.

A spokesman said: “Internationally recognised as one of the greatest tributes to George Michael the star has recently gone onto perform in the USA, Russia and Saas Fe, Switzerland where the unforgettable Last Christmas music video was recorded.”

Tickets are on sale now for the Viva show on Friday, August 17, costing from £20.
