I think George is great - a brilliant singer/songwriter plus he's funny!

I missed the ticket sale, but am still hoping for ticket for Glasgow

I was lucky enough to meet him at the time of Wham!&he was so sweet to all the fans - signed ever person's autograph&there was about 50 of us!

I have considered myself a fan since the early Wham days. Saw him in Oakland not long after he went solo, and it was a great show. He had a LOT of energy and kept the audience on their toes. (He really is a wee little guy tho!) My favorite George Michael song is Praying for Time. I'd go see him again if he came to So. Calif.

SQUEEEeeee***

I saw this on billboard.com and got a little over excited...I've never been so excited to think I might be wrong...

Promoters were correct to put their faith in George Michael's first European tour in 15 years. Since going on sale in April, Michael's 47-date 25 Live tour, which begins Sept. 23 in Barcelona, has moved close to 600,000 tickets, catching even Michael's handlers somewhat by surprise.

Michael's manager Michael Lippman calls the demand "over the top. It was beyond our expectations in terms of speed, but I never doubted we'd sell the tickets." The tour celebrates Michael's 25-year career.

Michael has never been known for extensive concert treks, having last toured in 1991 in support of his "Cover to Cover" album. "He did tour with Wham!, and he did tour on the 'Faith' album," Lippman says. "But there were only about 40 dates in America."

But 15 years is a long absence from the live market for any artist. Lippman says a series of personal and professional setbacks -- many of them well documented in the press, including suing Sony in 1993 -- kept Michael off the road.

"He just became a bit reclusive, not really wanting to go out and engage the public," Lippman says. "Now he's fit and ready to go and he wants to go out and play his music for people and interact with people."


Apparently, there was considerable pent-up demand to see Michael live. "I never take anything for granted -- it is dangerous to do so in this business," says tour producer Barrie Marshall of Marshall Arts. "However, people have been asking me every year for at least the last 10 years, 'When is George going to play dates?'"

Lippman says the set list will be a career retrospective, including hits from Wham! and Michael's solo career. "We've got a band, we've got a crew, we've got a set being built and designed, we're way ahead of the game," Lippman says. "We're all ready to go and can't wait for these dates to begin."

With overwhelming success of Europe, is there any chance Michael will test the waters in the United States? "I am very optimistic that we will," Lippman says. "Let's get up and running. We're all going to wear T-shirts saying, 'Let's make sure George has a good time.' I can't imagine it won't come to America."

Well good for him! I thought he said he was retiring from show business.

I'm sure sales will be fabulous...he's really a good artist.

Waiting
Flawless
Fast love

The first time ever I saw your face

Too funky
You have been loved
Everything she wants
My mother had a brother
Shoot the dog

Spinning the wheel
Jesus to a child
Easier affair
Different corner
Amazing
I'm your man
Outside

Careless whisper
Freedom 90

Rumor has it he's coming to the states early next year

One of my favorite music videos of all time! But I always forget . . . is he in it? In the video, the guy hanging upside down, with just jeans and no shirt on ( ) is that him???
