George Michael

A tribute to George Michael

There are no words to describe our deep sadness and sense of loss, after hearing the devastating news that George passed away yesterday. He was a giant as a songwriter with one of the most awesome voices the world has ever heard – or will ever hear.

Music is so important and great music can never be duplicated.

George brought so much magic across the world and we feel privileged and humbled to have had the opportunity to work with this wonderful person over so many years.

We are blessed that he leaves an amazing legacy of music and songs that will be enjoyed for so many years to come. So it is a comfort that he will always be part of our lives.

Our thoughts and love go out to his family and friends – and all his millions of fans around the world.

Be at peace George and thank you for so many precious memories.

Press reaction: George Michael's Symphonica

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.
