Remembering George Michael in concert

The sad and premature death of singer/songwriter George Michael reminds me of when I saw him in concert. It was the first non-sports event at the new Wembley Stadium in London and the date was Sunday 10 June 2007.

I wondered why I could not find an account of the concert on this blog but, when I checked, I found that my blog was down for 10 days because of a massive spam attack. However, I was able to find a note on the event in my daily diary which I have maintained for over 50 years.

I recorded that “the venue was excellent and the singing brilliant” while overall “it was fun”. My favourite songs from the concert were “Careless Whisper” and “Freedom”. The ticket was £75.

2017 has been a tough year in so many ways.
