George Michael's first ever live show in Belfast on the 4th of August marked the end of the 25Live Stadium Tour 2007 in Europe. In 2007, George as always sounded sublime, ocassionally forgot a lyric, wowd his audience dancing around in jeans, and was being experienced as highly outgoing and talkative. The audience got to see stunning new graphics on the video wall and screens. Not only the show had been enhanced visually - George updated video imagery and lighting - but musically as well with some fantastic feel good beats introducing several famous George Michael songs. The stage was better and bigger, also a runway was created. Fans were extremely enthousiastic and called the second European leg of the tour even better than the first leg in 2006.

George Michael was the first pop artist to play a concert at the new Wembley Stadium!. "To reopen the stadium," said Jim Frayling, head of music and new events at venue operator Wembley National Stadium, "we were keen to work with an act who was emotionally close to it. George Michael has a special history and affinity with the stadium."
