Unfortunately, I could not be in Prague for the opening night of George Michael’s 2011 Symphonica tour. The setlist is so good, I couldn’t resist sharing it with you all. I know you love George almost as much as I do. He plays “Cowboys and Angels” and Amy Winehouse’s “Love Is A Losing Game” and is backed with a symphony orchestra. Holy S–t!
George, if you are reading this, don’t even think about not playing these songs with a symphony for your US fans! 🙂

Happy birthday to one of my favorite singers of all time, George Michael. His music has gotten me through thick and thin and no matter how many times I’ve listened to his music (which is A LOT), I never get sick of it. A few years ago, I got to see George perform at Madison Square Garden for my first time and moments before the show, I found out I scored a back stage pass! I got to talk to George after the show and I got to tell him face to face how important his music is to my life. It stands out as one of my coolest New York moments ever and I’ll always be grateful for that experience. George is going to be touring Europe with a symphony later this year and simultaneously making a dance record. I am beyond excited. Speaking on behalf of your legions of devoted fans all over the world, thanks again George for all the smiles you’ve brought to our faces and have a great birthday!
Symphonica will see George Michael hit over 15 countries across Europe from August through December 2011. Some of the amazing venues already lined up include the O2 Arena in Berlin, Piazza Santa Croce in Florence, Palau San Jordi in Barcelona, London’s legendary Royal Albert Hall, and many, many more!
Finally! My beloved George Michael is making headlines for music again! Last month, he released a cover of New Order’s “True Faith” and donated all the proceeds to charity. The singer announced via Twitter that he’d be recording a cover song for Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding. He asked fans to make song suggestions (and of course, I picked “When 2 R In Love” by Prince – fingers crossed). The song will be available for download for free on CNN beginning April 15, 2011. In lieu of paying to download the track, George requests that you make a donation to the Prince William and Kate Middleton Charitable Gift Fund. You can learn more and make your donation here.
A few other bits of George Michael news revealed over the last few weeks via his Twitter account:
-He’s making a dance album
-He’ll be touring again (though on a smaller scale than his “25 Live Tour.”)
-He used the expression “Cock Piss Bastard.” (I just had to throw that in, because I’ve been laughing about that one for days!) Thanks for that George!
