George Michael Announces His Comeback Tour
George Michael is set to hit the road for a new tour, just three years after he quit performing live.
The Faith hit-maker played two London concerts, dubbed The Final Two, in 2008 and announced the shows would mark the end of his career on the stage.
He recently released a new track called True Faith, as well as recording a cover of Stevie Wonder's You & I in honor of Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge's wedding last month - and now he's preparing to sing the songs to his fans during a string of arena shows.
In a series of posts on his Twitter.com page on Friday, he writes, "Ok, get ready people, TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED NEXT WEDNESDAY!!! This tour will be very different from 25 Live tour."
He then jokes, "For a start, having lost 15 pounds since then, I'm thinking of doing it naked... Just to show off my youthful physique."
Michael adds, "You will probably be happy to hear that I changed my mind and decided to play arenas after all... There was no other way to make sure you all get a chance to see the show."
And when asked by a follower if he'd perform his rendition of You & I, he replied, "Yes, definitely."
