Evan Saxon and Doug Kluthe of D&E Entertainment commented, “It is a pleasure to bring George Michael's groundbreaking live show the big screen. Seeing George Michael in digital cinema will let his fans feel as if they've been transported to Earls Court for those amazing shows. Now fans who have not had a chance to experience George Michael live and those whop have and want to relive this critically acclaimed masterpiece can do so at their local theatre with the best seat in the house. At D&E we’re able to bring this live experience to fans who are looking for more than the typical film fare at their local cinema, while providing the artist unparalleled marketing opportunities and direct interaction with their fans.”
When George first announced his 25 Live Tour tickets were snapped up in minutes. The critically acclaimed tour saw George perform in front of over 2 million people worldwide with a 49 date 25 Live Arena Tour and a 30 date 25 Live Stadium Tour. In Summer 2008 Michael took his 25 Live Tour to arenas across North America touring North America for the first time in 20 years. In London alone, 350,000 people collectively watched him performing in Earls Court, Wembley Arena, The Roundhouse and the newly renovated Wembley Stadium, where he made musical history as the first artist to perform at the momentous venue in June 2007.
His exceptional performances in the UK, Europe and North America received unprecedented praise from both critics and fans across the globe.
“George proved he is simply one of the best vocalists this country has ever produced.” - The Sun
“King George still reigns supreme” - Mail on Sunday
“A masterclass in pop genius” - The Observer
“A tremendous singer, a complete showman. All George Michael needs is a mic, his songs, and the magic on stage is instaneous” - La Parisien
“As he closed with the still stirring ‘Freedom’, his hands raised high, testifying like an evangelist for self determination. Then he was on his knees, giving the ‘I’m not worthy’ bow several times towards his fans. His crowds roared back, still dancing to the music, suggesting that maybe he was’. - Rolling Stone
George Michael is one of the world’s most successful male artists, selling over 100 million records world wide and encompassing 11 British No.1 singles, eight British No.1 albums and six US No.1 singles. The Multi talented artist also proved to be a big hit on the small screen as he parodied himself in Christmas specials of the hit UK television shows ‘Catherine Tate Show’ and ‘Extras’.
Last year George participated in US sitcom Eli Stone, where each episode was titled after a George Michael song and George made several appearances throughout the series.
