George Michael Tours With John Lennon's Piano

British pop star George Michael is set to tour infamous British trouble-spots playing songs on John Lennon's famed white piano.

The former Wham! star paid $3 million for the instrument - which Lennon wrote peace anthem Imagine on - and will play it when he performs in the four sites of the 7/7 bombings, the street where black teenager Stephen Lawrence was murdered and the Admiral Duncan bar in London's Soho, which was hit by a nail bomb in 1999.

The Tragedy Tour aims to promote peace and harmony amongst British communities. Tour boss Caroline True said, "We'd like to take it (piano) everywhere we can. Our intention is to go to places in England where bad things have happened."

Imagine reached number one in the charts after the assassination of John Lennon in 1980.
