George Michael Tribute Acts: Wayne Dilks

George Michael tribute act (Wayne Dilks) first appeared on ‘Stars In Their Eyes’ in 2002. His performance was so good that they invited him back again during their 9 week live tour.

Wayne has been a lifelong George Michael fan and he just happens to have the same extraordinary vocal range of his pop idol. This is what he says in his own words, “It’s not just an impression for me, it’s a passion which I think shines through in my live shows.”

You’ll be taken on a nostalgic journey from George’s early days with ‘Wham’ moving on to songs that cover the spectrum of his illustrious solo career. Songs like Club Tropicana, Wake Me Up Before You Go Go, I’m Your Man, Young Guns, Faith, Father Figure, Careless Whisper, A Different Corner, Freedom 90, Outside plus his current material.

Wayne is a versatile performer and is able to adapt his show to suit the occasion, whether it’s a night club requiring the classic ‘Wham’ tunes or a small restaurant wanting his most up to date offerings.

He looks like him and sounds like him, if you’re looking for one of the UK’s best George Michael impersonators then look no further, it doesn’t get any better than this.

The show comes complete with a state of the art sound system, light show and costume changes.

“We were thrilled to be the first people to ever bring Wayne to perform live in the United States. The occasion was a surprise birthday party for my wife’s 50th.  As a long time George Michael fan, no evening would have been complete without a little George Michael music. Why settle for digital tracks when you can have a live performing tribute entertainer instead? Wayne impressed the crowd, mixed in ages and musical tastes with his singing, dancing and crowd engagement. Every element of his George Michael alter-ego was spot on. He was so good that one late arriver to the party began video taping him because she thought he “was” George Michael! Our local production company (Rob Woolson Productions) provided a sound and lighting system that made you feel like you were at a George Michael concert, including back-projected images of Wayne live as he perfomed. My wife felt like she really had George Michael perfoming for her birthday. The guests raved about his performance, even people who weren’t George Michael “fans” per se enjoyed the energy, the quality and the song choices – popular songs that everyone knew. Wayne stayed with us after his performacne to take pictures with party goers and to share stories and have fun. He even did a little dancing. My wife told Wayne he had everything that George Michael had and one thing George doesn’t have – youth! A memorable evening for everyone who attended. Thanks to Wayne for making my wife’s 50th birthday a night to remember for the next 50 years!” – Brent Hamachek (Chicago)

“Much like George Michael himself, tribute singer Wayne Dilks certainly succeeded in building up the level of expectation. It is pretty key that such performers look like the original and Wilks didn’t disappoint. Neither did his vocals and his cover of Careless Whisper was a highlight of the show. He is a confident character, exuding enough charisma to do credible homage to the ex-Wham front man – Stage Newspaper (London)

“Just a quick line to say how much we enjoyed Wayne Dilks at our party on the 30th August. He was just what you said he was very good, professional, friendly and a credit to have on your books” – Elaine Richardson
