This is a rumour currently doing the rounds…
Mike Me Up Before You Solo
George Michael has an impressive set of musicians on stage during his current tour; some of the best respected session musicians around.
Odd then that their instruments aren’t even linked up to the PA, and all music is pre-recorded and played through the speakers via ProTools, while the musicians pull artistic faces and wobble their heads in time to the music.
In fact, the only live ‘instrument’ heard by the audience is George’s voice itself, so don’t be going along and asking for an impromptu drum solo. It can’t be done, and you’d look like a twat asking anyway.
