George Michael’s postponed Motorpoint Arena show from December 2, 2011 will now take place Monday October 1, 2012.
George Michael will kick-off his ‘Symphonica’ Tour in Vienna, donating 1,000 tickets to the Viennese medical staff who saved his life.
He is back in good health and fighting fit after a battle with pneumonia at the end of last year, which unfortunately led to his ‘Symphonica’ tour being postponed. He is now preparing to return to the big stage this Autumn with rescheduled and newly added tour 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.
