Last night I attended the George Michael tour at the TD Banknorth Boston Garden. The tour only has a few more dates left in the U.S., but the show did not appear tired or slow - in fact, I think George Michael was enjoying himself nearly as much as the crowd.
Despite a late start, George Michael proved to be worth the wait. The show lasted a bit over 2 hours and he proved himself quite capable of entertaining a stadium sized audience. To be sure there were several songs missing from his line-up that I would have loved to hear, but he compensated by including some surprise choices like a slow, jazzy cover of Roxanne.
I've included a link to the glowing Boston Globe review and below is the cover version of Roxanne from his show earlier this week in New York.
