George Michael may be the next star to get the hologram show treatment...

The star's estate has reportedly submitted files which would allow the Last Christmas singer to perform as a 'live' holographic performer - similar to ABBA's Voyage tour.

Publicly available documents filed by Nobby's Hobbies Holdings at Companies House say that "Activity at the group will broaden in the next one to three years to include live public performances."

Andrew Ridgeley shared last year that he "absolutely loved" watching ABBA Voyage, and that he'd "pay to go and see" a Wham! hologram show.

While on Newsnight last year, Andrew also addressed the ethical concerns around bringing George 'back to life' on stage.

"My thinking would be, ‘Fantastic!’ To have Wham! At its pomp, playing live."


"Of course, there are ethical questions,"

"And that decision would be a mutual decision between myself and [George Michael’s] estate, should it ever come to it," he said when asked his thoughts on a hologram tour.

"And I can’t speak for them, I don’t know how they would feel about it. But I think it could be done, and I think it could be done exceptionally well.

"I’d pay to go and see it!"

So would we! Fingers crossed it comes to Aotearoa!
