Main Stage ♦ Friday
WHAM!DURAN have gone from strength to strength since forming. This is one of the most danceable tribute bands, as every song is a guaranteed teen anthem. Opening with the fantastic "Edge of Heaven" and "Young Guns", they then pack the dance floor with "Everything She Wants". Other classic pop songs then follow: "Freedom", "Bad Boys", "Young Guns". Attention to detail is everything, with even the crickets at the start of "Club Tropicana" being faithfully reproduced! Male and female vocalists mean they carry off "Wham Rap" perfectly, and bring the party to a rousing conclusion with an epic "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go".
The hysteria of the eighties wouldn't be complete without the hits of Duran Duran on the same stage - "Rio", "Notorious", "Girls on Film", "Hungry like the Wolf" and many more. The six piece band cover all the tracks with the greatest authenticity, from the girl backing vocals to the live brass sounds, even featuring ex-Duran Duran session musicians over the years, this is so close it's almost the real thing.
