George Michael is hoping to make a real comeback in America. He doesn’t think mainstream America will really want some “stoned, lefty poof” making a comeback… however, that’s what he’s planning.
What will the audience want to hear on the US tour? The old hits: Faith, maybe Freedom and some Wham! Well, that might be what they want… but that’s not what they’re gonna get! What they’re going to get is the 25 Live tour proper, including the stuff that was on records that didn’t really sell in America. So, this US Tour really is for George’s hardcore fans – the ones who bought the records. By the way, George believes the 25 Live show is the best pop music show in the world right now, bar none, so I guess that means he thinks it should make a splash in America.
George will be spending some time in the US after European leg of the 25 Live Tour finishes at the end of July doing some preprations. Then, he’ll be back later in the year for the the US tour proper.
Oh, and there might be a special guest coming on stage at the Wembley gigs next weekend to sing a duet… but he hasn’t asked them yet (not Andrew R.).
