Wham! concert at Lyceum Theatre, London, England

Wed 15 Nov 2006


George Michael is to perform a free concert for NHS-registered nurses as part of his greatest hits tour.

The concert will take place at the Roundhouse in London on 20 December.

In a message on his website, the former Wham! star said he wanted to thank the nurses who cared for his mother when she was on her deathbed.

"The nurses that helped my family at that time were incredible people, and I realised just how undervalued these amazing people are."

Michael begins the UK leg of his Twentyfive tour on Friday at Manchester's MEN Arena.


NHS registered nurses can apply for tickets via Michael's official website.

"Almost 10 years ago, during the last week of my mother's life, I told my friends and family that if I ever played my own concerts again, I would make sure to do a free one for NHS nurses," writes the singer.

"I can't wait. Neither can the tour crew, for entirely different reasons."

Michael made headlines last month after being filmed smoking cannabis on an ITV programme.

In October he was cautioned by police for possessing cannabis after being found in north London slumped at the wheel of his car.
