Towards the end of last year Michael suffered a serious bout of pneumonia, which led to the cancellation of his 'Symphonica' tour, but he's fighting fit once again and returns to play a three-night stint at Earls Court. This tour, he he claims, is to atone for his 'sins' and say sorry to his fans for his latter-day reckless behaviour. Here with a full orchestra delivering a set of reimaginings of his own vast number of hits, plus a few covers. Whatever you think of him as a sleb, Michael is a hugely talented performer and this should press all the classy pop buttons. NB: This date has been rescheduled from Dec 2011; original tickets remain valid.
