With his soul-stirring performance of "White Light" at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, pop legend George Michael celebrated 30 years as one of music's most beloved icons. Known for his passionate voice and versatile repertoire, Michael continued to wow ticket buyers on 2012's Symphonica Tour, performing his myriad hits alongside a full orchestra to sold out arenas around the world. The release of “White Light” in 2012 epitomized the essence of Michael’s warm, soulful sound, building anticipation among fans for a new album and tour in 2014.
Michael rose to fame as one-half of quintessential '80s pop duo Wham! before releasing his 1984 solo debut single "Careless Whisper," which topped charts around the world and spawned one of the most famous saxophone solos in the history of pop music. His album debut, 1987's Faith, landed at No. 1 in both the US and UK, won a Grammy for Album of the Year, and went on to become one of the top-selling albums of all time on the strength of classics like "I Want Your Sex" and "Father Figure." The 2012 release of “White Light" was inspired by a near-fatal bout with pneumonia the previous year, and quickly made the UK Singles Top 40 list. Michael continues to be a consummate performer, and with news of a new album in the works, fans look forward to the opportunity to see him in concert again in 2014.
