The pop star will also visit France, Italy, Belgium, Germany, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Sweden, Holland and Hungary as part of the 26 Live Stadium Tour.

The 43-year-old played several key gigs at the old Wembley stadium, including Live Aid in 1985 and Wham's farewell concert in 1986 with ex-bandmate Andrew Ridgeley.

Michael is currently facing a drugs trial after being charged with being unfit to drive through drugs and cautioned for cannabis possession.

During a hearing at Brent Magistrates' Court on Wednesday the prosecution also added a indictment of being in charge of a vehicle while unfit through drugs.

A trial is expected in May or June.
