After his incredible 2010 tour George Michael returns to Australia, as you have never seen him before.


George Michael triumphantly returns to Australia in March and April 2012, when his Symphonica: The Orchestral Tour will travel to arenas in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, and Brisbane and to stunning outdoor winery settings in Perth’s Swan Valley and the Hunter Valley in New South Wales.  


Symphonica, which is currently playing to incredible audiences on a huge 64 date European tour, will fulfil George's long-cherished artistic ambition of performing alongside a full orchestra.  George will not only perform a carefully chosen selection of his own material spanning his remarkable, near 30-year career; but he will also cover some of his favourite songs from other artists.


On Symphonica, the music has been re-worked and re-arranged by George for a 40-piece orchestra, which will accompany George and his band throughout the tour.  This brand new symphonic production has given each song added layers and fresh nuance.It's unmistakeably George Michael, but not as we've ever known him.


The Symphonica tour commenced in Prague in August and has been critically acclaimed across its journey throughout Europe:


“Rich and expressive... a stunning show from a performer who looks back to his best.” Daily Mail


“His five-minute standing ovation is entirely deserved.” The Guardian


“Climaxing in audience sing-songs of Freedom and I’m Your Man, it was a show that covered the full range of emotions and confirmed that George was back in style.” The Mirror



George Michael has always been a captivating live performer, possessing an exquisite soul voice.  In early 2010, he thrilled and delighted Australian audiences when he played sold out stadium shows after an absence of around 22 years.  Over 115,000 Australian fans weren’t just spectators to the superstar’s phenomenal show; their anticipation and energy helped make those shows some of the most memorable the country has ever witnessed.


With an unparalleled voice, a 40-piece orchestra and a tantalising promise to include songs never previously performed live, Symphonica is a magical experience awaiting singer and audience alike...
