The Arena Tour - and the dream came true 

Stadium Tour

The Final

Thank You George

The Stadium Tour

The venue, Manchester City Stadium wasn’t as huge as I’d expected. Now don’t laugh, I’d never been to a football stadium before and my view of the stage was far better than I’d expected. Sophie Ellis Bexter was first on stage, her green dress resembling a Viscount biscuit. She did her best to get us going, but let’s be honest here, I wasn’t there to see her and neither where the other 65,000 people. We where there to see George Michael and we all kept our enthusiasm and energy for when OUR MAN walked out on stage.
The uproar of so many people is quite some sound and the emotion I felt as The Greek God came out on stage was overpowering. I screamed his name as loud as I could and then just cheered and screamed like a banshee. I turned and smiled at Kim, words where not necessary. I knew that I was in good company, she, like most of the people around me knew exactly what was going through my mind, for they surely felt it too. In this place there was no need to try and explain myself, in this place I was with like-minded people who understood and would never belittle me for the love I now felt.

 

“Fastlove” exploded, we danced and screamed as Yog hit every note and danced his socks off. The rain that drenched him just made him sexier and did nothing to dampen my spirits. He smiled, giggled and chatted and I hung on to his every word.
By the time we got to “Father Figure” I could feel myself starting to blubber. Uncontrollably but silently the tears started to flow down my checks. Momentarily I worried about the black eyeliner that was probably half was down my face by now, but there was nothing I could do to stop the tears. Through out this song I stared at the large screen, never once looking away from my “Idol.” My god what does this man have over me? Why does he make me feel like this?
“Everything she wants” got me dancing again and I took my eyes off the screen and watched the perfect figure of the man dancing around the stage. I remember George saying in early 06 that this would be a different tour to those earlier in his life…he wouldn’t be shaking his bum these days….Yog you lied, and my god you still shake it so well!!!

 

 

“Praying For Time” had the tears flowing again, why did he do this? Why did he take me right up and then play with my emotions by singing an emotional Ballard? Now he was touching me again somewhere deep in my soul, these are songs that have been of great comfort to me in my lower moments, songs that really do mean something.
One of my favorites “Star People” had my screaming his name and that led to the hilarious but controversial “Shoot The Dog.” Now we can laugh at it but how worrying it is to know that this “Pop Star” actually saw things clearer than the politicians and indeed the Prime Minister!!!
The 20mins break actually brought sadness, we where half way through. Would I ever feel this way again? Would I ever get to feel these emotions again? I have to believe that one day I will, for my future sanity I have to believe……..
Suddenly he’s back on stage, OMG what is he wearing? George dressed as an American police Office for “Outside”…..OMG…...yeah that really does it for me.(mind you George dresses as Coco the clown would probably “do it” for me. )
“Spinning the Wheel” and he has us all waving our arms in the air, the thought crosses my mind that this reminded me ever so slightly of playing “Simon says” at school. Yes George, Of course George, ANYTHING you say George. “Flawless” another favorite “Causes your beautiful, like no other.”

“Amazing,” for darling Kenny, the man he loves. Lucky git, luckiest man alive I think. (Helen please take him home!) And yeah, I sang it too…. nanana nanana .Magic ,pure magic.
“The Edge of Heaven” was a treat as I’d never heard him perform it live before, “Careless Whisper”- perfection. He left us briefly coming back onto the stage for one last time for “Freedom 90” …..WOW. As fantastic and affective as the day it was written. “You’ve got to give for what you take.”
George darling you’ve done it again, left my emotions in tatters. Left me needing more, left me more obsessed than I’ve ever been, but left me knowing and understanding why to me you are so special. Not an hour of any waking moment goes past without a thought of you and what you’ve given me. Thank you George for being there when I need a friend, a shoulder to cry on or a little piece of sanity. You’re my inspiration at happy times and my comfort at lower moment. I never need to drown my sorrows in a bottle of wine, not when I’ve got you to turn too. Till the next time we spend an evening together George, Thank you….and I’ll be “Waiting”

Final Two 

Court 24th+25th of August 2008

 

I left home at 9am on Sunday. I Loved my time down in London, getting there was ace, 35 min's from Manchester in an airoplane… Bloody brilliant. The hotel was great; the company was good, like-minded people with one man in mind. We went to Oxford St on Monday...I'm not one for shopping but we had a giggle. We had a sit down in Hyde park in-case George was on the prowl...damn missed him again! Before the concerts on both nights we met forum members at the Tournament bar...it was great to catch up with friends and meet new ones.
The concert on Sunday was brilliant. Seven rows from the front should have been amazing for us but with 4 x 6ft something men in front of us our view was restricted. We tried to stand on the chairs but got told off. (I wonder why???) We also got a bollocking for trying to get nearer the front...ah well. But every cloud has a silver lining ...We met Kenny, he was funny, charming and so very very good-looking. Believe me the photos don’t do him justice. George was on form and full of humor and fun
If I though Sunday was brilliant on Monday I was in for a BIG shock. The tickets cost £50 less and I thought the seats would be crap but we where directly above the stage and the view was amazing. George was on fire. I've never seen him quite like that; he was like a teenager and on stage from 8.30ish till 11.00pm with a 20min break. He told dirty jokes whilst the set was adjusted and danced like he was years younger. His vocals where flawless, though he muddled his lyrics a couple of times...like he does.
 

 

I was already in tears by the middle of “Father Figure,” the emotional roller coaster begins again. “Precious Box” was simply outstanding and “My Mother Had A Brother” would I’m sure have moved the hardest of souls. “Fantasy” has never been my favorite George song but I will surely now look at it in a different light and see that man dance his butt off across the stage….I’ve been to some fantastic George Michael concerts, but this was simply the best concert I have ever been to, it's left me emotional but happy...my God that man does it for me! I’d seriously hate to think where my life would be now without him in it. Please George don’t ever leave us, we need you and love you. If you didn’t know that before Monday…I guess you do now. I can't wait for the DVD now.

 

OMG - Look Who It Is!

Meeting Kenny was just great...and NO I'm not telling you what he's doing to me!!!
