The Finals


December 1, 2008


Two concerts, titled The Final Two, took place in Earls Court, London on 24 and 25 August 2008. One more last show was performed in Copenhagen at Copenhagen’s Parken Stadium on 30 August. This special performance, entitled The Final One, allowed George to say ‘thank you’ to his loyal fans across Europe. All the tickets for the Final Two shows in London and the Finale One show in Denmark were sold out in 2 hours. Another last concert was held at the Mohammed Bin Zayed Stadium on 1 December 2008, in Abu Dhabi, UAE. It was the first event to be held at the new stadium and was billed as the biggest concert ever held in the UAE. It was also George Michael’s first concert in the Middle East. The 25 LIVE Tour spanned 106 shows in 29 countries and broke several ticket sales records. The unprecedented public response has stood out as the fastest sell of tickets ever experienced by Barrie Marshall, whose London-based promotion firm, Marshall Arts Limited, has been promoting shows for 30 years.
