George Michael - Singer/Songwriter

Arena: M.E.N. Arena

Opmerking: SHOW POSTPONED - With great regret, George Michael has been forced to postpone his concert tonight (12th December) at the M.E.N. Arena, in Manchester, due to his on-going battle with pneumonia.

While George is receiving excellent medical care and is responding to treatment and slowly improving, to ensure his complete well-being, George's doctors have advised that he cannot perform the rest of his Symphonica tour and that he instead takes a full and complete rest.

Prof. Dr. Christoph Zielinski, Chairman, Department of Medicine General Hospital - Medical University Vienna, Austria and Prof. Dr. Thomas Staudinger, Specialist in Internal Medicine and Intensive Care Medicine have stated the following: "George Michael has severe community acquired pneumonia and is being treated as an inpatient. His condition has stabilized and he is responding to treatment. From the current point of view, the time until recovery cannot be estimated, but he will not be able to perform the rest of the tour. Besides medical treatment, complete rest and peace and quiet are mandatory."

As a result, all of the UK dates of the Symphonica European tour will be postponed. George was very much looking forward to bringing his tour back home and performing for his loyal and dedicated UK fan base.
