George Michael - Singer/Songwriter
Last night George Michael kicked off his Symphonica Tour at the State Opera House in Prague. It was an emotional and introspective return to the stage. In a departure from his traditional style, he was being supported by a symphony orchestra as he sang some of his famous tracks in a more mellow, adapted fashion as well as a selection of covers.

George Michael sang to a sell-out audience at the opulent Opera House in Prague, combining tracks like "Kissing A Fool" and "It Really Doesn't Matter" with "My Baby Just Cares For Me" and New Order's "True Faith." George also paid tribute to Amy Winehouse, who died last month, performing a version of her hit "Love is a Losing Game." There were also other covers, namely Terence Trent D'Arby's "Let Her Down Easy", a rousing rendition of Rihanna's "Russian Roulette" and Rufus Wainwright's "Going To A Town."

Mid-performance George admitted he'd split with long-term partner Kenny Goss while dedicating a new song "Where I Hope You Are" to him.
