GEORGE MICHAEL was
reportedly fined $260,000 (GBP130,000) after his opening concert
at the new Wembley Stadium in London overran by 13 minutes.
The singer was the first
artist to perform at the renovated venue - but walked away with
a hefty charge for performing for too long. A source says,
"Wembley has strict rules that gigs must finish at an
agreed time or face a GBP10,000 fine for each minute they
continue. George slipped two extra songs into his set and racked
up a huge bill.
He was enjoying himself
so much he didn't care." A Wembley spokesperson said,
"Wembley can issue fines for concerts that overrun, but
that's between Wembley and the concert promoters."
