George Michael back on Scots stage

Chart star George Michael has performed for a Scottish audience in the first of two shows

George Michael has performed for a Scottish audience in the first of two shows.

The 49-year-old took to the stage at Glasgow's SECC wearing a black suit and his trademark sunglasses.

He will perform at the same venue tonight (September 24) as part of his Symphonica tour which was previously postponed after he spent weeks in hospital battling pneumonia last November.

The show sees him perform with an orchestra accompanied by a screen featuring special visual effects.

Earlier this month the singer made a return to the stage in Austria after being in hospital for several weeks in Vienna as a result of last year's illness. George, who celebrated his 30-year career in music in June, donated 1,000 tickets to the medical staff as a thank you gift for saving his life.

The singer, whose real name is Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou, will perform at various venues across the UK next month before heading to Australia in November.
