George Michael - Singer/Songwriter has announced the details of the special Symphonica charity date at the Royal Opera House in London on Sunday, November 6. It's been confirmed that this will be a very special black-tie charity event that will see all net proceeds benefitting the Elton John AIDS Foundation's newly created Elizabeth Taylor Memorial Fund, to support its global work helping people infected or affected by HIV.

George Michael has spoken of what has inspired him to support the Elton John AIDS Foundation in this way, "I have seen how HIV can affect people lives, how it can destroy families and communities. The way that the Elton John AIDS Foundation gets help to the people around the World who need it most – often the most marginalized communities - really spurred me on to do something. I also really wanted to honour the inspiring efforts that Elizabeth Taylor made – especially in the early years of the epidemic - and to mark her passing this year I am delighted to announce that the Elton John AIDS Foundation will use all the proceeds from this show to create and manage a new fund in her memory – The Elizabeth Taylor Memorial Fund."

The public sale for this concert will take place Sunday, June 26 at 10 am via a dedicated Royal Opera House box office number – 020 7304 4003 – and online at
