George Michael, First to Enjoy the Reconstructed Wembley Stadium

March 5, 2007 (6:38 am) GMT
After a much delayed reopening of Wembley Stadium, George is scheduled to be the first artist performing on stage.

The newly reconstructed Wembley Stadium has finally opened up its slot to configure live concerts and is made the first pop artist to perform on the fresh stage on June 9, 2007.

He may be the first artist presented in the much-delayed reconstructed building but actually he had been performing in the building's old form several times, both with or solo. "He's no stranger to this great stage having performed at the old stadium both with Wham! at Live Aid and also as a solo artist, so this is a fitting first gig in the new stadium," Wembley's managing director, Alex Horne said upon the upcoming gig.

The concert is conducted as part of George's "British and European Stadium" tour, the subsequent scheduled tour after his "25 Live" concerts. The tour agenda will begin in Aarhus Stadium, Denmark on May 18 and finish July 21 in Stadio Olimpico, Rome.

Beside Michael, the British band will also perform in the stadium dated June 16 and June 17, 2007. With that, Muse will also be the first band announced to appear in the stadium after the reconstruction.
