My friend from high school was a HUGE George Michael / Wham! fan while I was the huge U2 fan. She just saw him on 6/19 at San Jose and she said floor tickets were going for $2000!!!!! She didnt pay that but that must have been what the scalpers were charging She said the place was just super packed and it was a good show.

I wanted to go but the damn thing got sold out quick and the only seats left were $250 ones! And that's the actual price on ticketbastard!

I was so mad at the bastard scalpers and profiteers on ebay that I just went and did something... Somebody had 2 tickets up in the rafters.. 400s on ebay for a total of $299 or best offer. So I made them an offer saying I'm NOT gonna pay more than face value... $50 + $10 ticketbastard charges = $60 times 2 = $120. Not a cent more. I'm curious to see what he will say, if he replies at all!

Agree that he has an amazing voice, how about YouTube - Kissing A Fool - George Michael - 1988, and the great tribute he did at Wembley for Freddie Mercury on YouTube - Somebody to Love?

Wish he'd make his way to Australia, not sure about those ticket prices though..

Still, he'd have to jack up prices a lot more to be in the same gold-digging league as Babs?

Kissing A Fool! Such fun to sing along to just like many of his songs!

As for his Wembley performance of Somebody To Love, I like it more than the original. I'm not kidding. What a voice!

As a Queen fan I almost agree with that. I can't wait for this show, to hear that voice in person at the Garden

I just got back from the show here in Vancouver and it was amazing!! What a voice. It's been 20 years since I saw the Faith tour and this was even better. Great energy and to see thousands of people on their feet throughout it seemed like we were at a very large nightclub. He really enjoyed himself here and expressed as much throughout the whole night. This is one night that I really don't think he'll forget, let alone us. Wow

Go see him if you have the chance.
