Following his much publicised battle with pneumonia which led to the sudden cancellation of his European tour last year, George Michael has announced rescheduled dates and will now play Liverpool’s Echo Arena on Wed 10th October 2012. BUY TICKETS
The singer is now preparing to return to the big stage this Autumn with rescheduled and newly added tour dates. This will include the postponed Echo Arena date that was originally scheduled for November 30th 2011. This concert will now take place on October 10th, 2012. Concert promoters have confirmed that original tickets will be valid for the rescheduled dates.
The ‘Symphonica’ tour will kick-off its first concert on September 4th 2012 in Vienna, a newly added date in the city where George was hospitalised with pneumonia after performing 46 of the original 65 dates of his tour. George Michael will donate one thousand tickets for this September 4th date as a special thank you to the medical staff who cared for him so well whilst he was in hospital.
George Michael says, “I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you first to the doctors and nurses who saved my life and took such great care of me and to all my fans, family and friends for their love and support. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone.”
The rescheduled and brand new ‘Symphonica’ tour dates will include performances in Austria, The Netherlands and France where George Michael will make history when he becomes the first pop artist ever to perform a special gala charity concert at the Palais Garnier Opera House in Paris on September 9th, 2012.
George will then return to the UK to play dates in Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow, Sheffield, Newcastle, Cardiff, Liverpool and London. He will complete his UK dates with three concerts at Earls Court in London. These UK concerts are now rescheduled for September and October 2012.
