George Michael resumes the Symphonica tour in Vienna tonight. Ten months ago, George was forced to postpone the remainder of the tour when he caught pneumonia and nearly died.
Austrian media reported that 300 hospital staff – from doctors to cleaning crews – will attend Tuesday evening’s show. With his permission, the hospital is selling another 700 concert tickets he donated to raise money for lung disease research.
George Michael posted on Twitter:
Hey everyone, it’s that time again! And I get to open the tour singing to the men and women who saved my life. And it’s a beautiful day!
