Symphonica opened at the Prague State Opera House. During this tour George Michael performed a carefully chosen selection of his own songs, spanning a remarkable 30-year career, as well as covers of some of his favourite songs from other artists, with music being re-worked and re-arranged for the orchestra that accompanied him.
In George’s word: “I’ve always wanted to sing with this kind of backing and really use my voice. There will be covers and there will be a lot of songs from my own history that people have never heard me sing before live; there’ll be songs from the album Songs From The Last Century, because I thought it was such a beautiful album, beautifully arranged and produced and those arrangements did deserve a wider audience.“
