George Michael Symphonica Orchestral Concert Tour - Echo Arena - 10/10/2012

Sorry for the shaky video but I was dancing and recording at the same time....not to mention a few beers before hand...not easy. The Symphonica Tour is an orchestral concert tour by George Michael. George performs the songs mainly from "Songs from the Last Century" and "Patience" albums as well as some cover versions in new arrangements. The tour was official announced on 11 May 2011.[1] Due to high demand for tickets, extra shows were added in Dublin, London, Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow, Cardiff, Rotterdam, Herning & Verona. A Brussels show was later announced on 3 June.[2] Milan and Copenhagen shows were later announced. Many of the shows had already sold out completely. Prague, Antwerp, Rotterdam, London (Royal Albert Hall & Royal Opera House), Dublin, Cardiff, Sheffield and Newcastle had all sold out. The Show included regular George's Band which travelled with him on his previous tour as well as symphonic orchestra. Stage has a semi-oval shape with a huge screen projecting different visual effects sometimes with George himself. Some visuals were taken from previous tour. On 25 November it was announced that all further concerts in 2011 had been cancelled due to ill health.[3] On 3 May 2012 it was announced Michael would be returning to Australia in November 2012. His performance in Perth on 10 November is the headline act for the Perth Arena Gala Opening.
