George Michael became the first singer to perform at the new Wembley Stadium on Saturday, June 9, nearly seven years after the last concert at the London venue.
The veteran star, who had been sentenced to 100 hours community service for driving while unfit just the previous day, performed hits from his Wham! days and his solo career. He played the stadium again Sunday (June 10). The shows are part of his "25Live" tour celebrating 25 years in the music business.
Michael said it was an "amazing honor" to play Wembley. "I have felt a huge association with Wembley from when I was a child," he told reporters.
Onstage, he called his fans "the best, most patient in the world."
Asked before the gig if his sentencing had affected his preparations, he replied: "Not at all, not in the slightest. It's just nice to have it out of the way." His community service sentence came he had previously admitted the driving while unfit saying he was guilty because of tiredness and prescription drugs.
Onstage, he attacked "liars" in the press covering his private life.
The U.K. leg of his "25 Live" 2007 tour moves to Norwich, England, on Tuesday, before calling at Manchester, Glasgow, and Plymouth.
