The show is currently touring across the UK and will be coming to Swindon's Wyvern Theatre 14 Septmeber.

Accompanied by a seven-piece live band, Dilkes has been touring his tribute show for the last 16 years and is now internationally recognised from performances in Russia, the USA and Switzerland. Faith - The George Michael Legacy will see Dilkes perform a number of Michael's hit songs including Faith, Wake Me Up Before You Go Go, I'm Your Man, Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me, Club Tropicana, and many more.

"***** He really is a talent" - Whats on Stage.

In a statement Wayne Dilks said: "On Christmas Day 2016 the world lost a Legend. 

"George Michael is one of the world's most successful male artists. Regarded by many as the singer-songwriter of his generation, selling over 100 million records world wide and encompassing 11 British No.1 singles, eight British No.1 albums and six US No.1 singles.  

"Since 1982 George Michael's music has provided a soundtrack to the lives of so many people. The music from his back catalogue has the ability to take you back in time, to a place or a memory, that is the power of  his longevity. For most of us, George is more than a musical genius, he represents so much more.

"On a Personal level, I have been lucky enough to perform my tribute show for the last 16 years. It is a pleasure performing the songs of a man of which I have admired since my childhood.

"You may have noticed that I refer to George as 'is' rather than 'was'. George may have passed but his music will live forever, I'm sure George's loyal fan base of Lovelies will agree."
