George Michael is preparing to complete his run of ‘Symphonica’ UK tour dates this October, shows which have been by his own admission, some of his “best ever”.
According to the Sheffield Star, George wowed the crowd with his “majestic performance last night”, a performance that his fans have patiently waited for. The crowd in turn roared their approval every time he crisscrossed the stage. His obvious rapport with the audience gave last night’s show an intimacy that belied the fact he was performing to yet another sold out arena.
The rescheduled ‘Symphonica’ tour kicked-off in Vienna in September, the city in which George was hospitalised with pneumonia in 2011, but George’s return to the UK has been particularly special to him, and the crowd response has brought him great happiness.
By the time George finishes at London’s Earls Court on Wednesday 17 October, he will have played an incredible 65 shows in some of the most beautiful opera houses and biggest arenas in Europe.
Having just confirmed he will not visit Australia after advice from his doctors, he has assured fans via his website that he will complete all the shows in the UK.
