George Michael Gets First New Wembley Gig
- June marks lift off for stadium as a music Mecca

George Michael Gets First New Wembley GigGEORGE MICHAEL has been handed the job of launching the new Wembley as a music venue.

"This is a fitting first gig in the new stadium," said Wembley stadium MD Alex Horne. "We are looking forward to putting the stadium back on the world map as a major music destination."

The concert is to take place on 9 June. It comes in the wake of Michael's triumphant return to live performance, which has seen the former Wham! singer again take by storm the international touring circuit.

Michael, who appears to have put behind him several car-related arrest-incidents, is a veteran of the old Wembley. As Horne noted: "He's no stranger to this great stage having performed at the old stadium with both Wham! and as a solo artist."
