VIDEO: George Michael — A Different Corner
live on Parkinson (BBC, 1998)

Rarely will you feel comfortable spending a day’s wages on a gig, but then again it’s not often that George Michael comes to town.

Fresh from his energetic performance at the Olympic Games Closing Ceremony last month, this world-famous pop star takes to the stage at Glasgow’s SECC on Sunday and Monday for his rescheduled Symphonica Tour.

Hits like A Different Corner and Kissing A Fool will echo gloriously around the vast interior of ‘the armadillo’ as Michael, supported by a live orchestra, belts out material from his undeniably impressive back catalogue and cover versions of classic songs in much-acclaimed new arrangements.

From his early days as an eighties pin-up in Wham!, to selling out the planet’s biggest venues as a respected solo artist, this music legend still offers as much bang for your buck than at any point during his glittering 30-year career.
