George Michael shot to fame with the band Wham! which he co-founded with his school friend Andrew Ridgeley. Our George Michael taxi tour catalogues George’s rise to success and fame from his working class routes, right up to his death on Christmas Day 2016.   

 

Your private taxi tour starts off by exploring George’s relationship with his family, his early life in Kingsbury and how all of this influenced his lyrics. Kingsbury is very proud of its link with Wham! ‘s lead singer, which is evident by the giant mural dedicated to George Michael. When you stop to admire the 9-meter-high mural, see how many scenes from songs and music videos you can spy!

 

The tour continues to Bushey in North London, where George Michael met his future band member, Andrew Ridgley. During the tour you’ll explore the many musical firsts that the young pop duo shared, including the location where they loved to dance with Pepsi and the humble scout hut where they had their first gig.

 

Soon Wham! became the sound of the 80s, and George Michael was well on his way to superstardom. However, we all know that celebrity attracts scandals, and George Michael had his fair share of shocking headlines. During the tour you’ll be able to discuss how George Michael responded to them and what you thought of them!

 

The tour continues to travel to the fashionable suburb of Highgate. This area has attracted celebrities for years and is home to the likes of Jude Law, Liam Gallagher, Jamie Oliver and Kate Moss, who was George Michael’s neighbour!

 

Sadly, the final location on your private tour is to George’s final resting place in Highgate cemetery. George’s family have made it clear that they do not want fans to visit George’s grave and have therefore left it unmarked. In order to respect his family’s wishes, the tour will not visit the private area where George is buried. However, you will be given the opportunity to wander around the public part of this atmospheric cemetery and spend some time soaking in the beauty of his final resting place, while privately reflecting on George Michael’s extraordinary life. RIP George.
