|Three days before the MTV
Unplugged show, George performed an acoustic show for
the first time at the Paris theater in London.
At the beginning of October
1996, George performed his first live shows for five
years with a gig for Radio 1 FM followed by an Unplugged
Session for MTV. Although these concerts were attended
by the smallest audiences George has ever played to, he
claims they were nevertheless two of the most enjoyable,
due to the intimacy of the occasion. The Radio 1FM
audience consisted of just 200 people and the MTV
Unplugged session slightly larger at 500. Both audiences
included competition winners, some of whom had flown to
London from all over the world, as well as various
specially invited guests.
