Fresh from his performance at the London 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremony last month, George Michael resumes his European and UK ‘Symphonica’ tour in Vienna this Tuesday, September 4th 2012. George has added this new date in the city where he was hospitalised with a bout of pneumonia, forcing him to postpone the tour. George Michael will be donating 1,000 tickets for this September 4th date as a special thank you to the medical staff that saved his life.

After Vienna, George Michael takes his ‘Symphonica’ tour to Paris where on September 9th he will make history by becoming the first pop artist ever to perform at the Palais Garnier Opera House, playing a special charity Gala concert to raise money for the AIDS related charity ‘Sidaction’. George then visits Brussels and Amsterdam before making a triumphant return to the UK to complete the tour. The UK ‘Symphonica’ dates include Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow, London’s iconic ‘Royal Albert Hall’, Sheffield, Newcastle, Cardiff, Liverpool and 3 sell-out dates at Earl’s Court in London.

The ‘Symphonica’ tour has fulfilled Michael's long-cherished artistic ambition of performing alongside an orchestra. Michael will perform not only a carefully chosen selection of his own material, spanning his remarkable, near 30-year career, but he will cover some of his favourite songs from other artists.

George Michael has sold over 120 million records, played some of the most iconic shows and venues around the globe, has won unprecedented accolades and he remains one of the world's most successful recording and live artists.

By combining an unparalleled voice, the Symphonic orchestra, and a tantalizing promise to include songs never previously performed live, George Michael’s ‘Symphonica’ is a magical experience awaiting fans and critics alike. One critic sums it up perfectly, “The voice is back…a triumphant return to the stage”.
