George Michael forced to postpone Royal Albert Hall 'Symphonica' date
Royal Albert Hall gig will now take place on 29th September 2012 - original tickets remain valid
George Michael opened his Symponica tour at the Royal Albert Hall last night, but has been forced to postpone tonight's show.
Tonight (Weds 26th October) would have been the second of four dates that the singer is due to perform at the prestigious venue, and it will now be rescheduled due to him contracting a viral infection and being advised not to perform on medical advice.
Promoters are asking ticket holders for tonight's concert to retain their tickets. The Symphonica tour continues at the Royal Albert Hall until Saturday 29th October, after which the singer is due to visit Ireland (Dublin's O2), then back to the UK for another London date (the Royal Opera House, no less!), then Cardiff, Liverpool and many more until he sees the tour out in Earl's Court from 16th to 19th December.
Surprisingly, there are still a few tickets available for a number of the dates, including the last date of the UK tour at the Earl's Court Exhibition centre on Monday 19th December, as well as the second Dublin date (3rd Nov), the second SECC date (7th Dec) and both Manchester dates (12th and 13th December).
We will let you know if any of the other Symphonica dates are affected as soon as we hear anything, of course.
Update: Rescheduled date announced!
After George Michael's recent health-scare, the singer has reported that he's fighting fit and ready to finally get his "Symphonica" tour back on track. All of the rescheduled dates come with a guarantee that original 2011 tickets from the postponed shows will be valid for the new run during the autumn, including the Royal Albert Hall event. After originally being rescheduled for May 2012, it will now take place on 29th September.
