George Michael’s first ever Greek concert July 26, 2007

OK, back home from George’s live in Athens!

Simply a sensational performance! George has proved once more that he IS a superstar. A magnificent hi-tech production, an Olympic Stadium with thousands of crazy Greeks, a show which lasted for a little more than two hours. It all started at 22:00 and ended at 0:35 local Greek time.

George, although of Greek-Cypriot descent, spoke fairly little Greek, and he said:

“This is the first time that people in any country of the world, called me with my real name”

while Greeks were shouting “Giorgos, Giorgos, Giorgos!” all in a rythm! At the end of the show and at audience’s demand he performed two additional songs, “Careless Whisper” and “Freedom”. Just before performing “Freedom” George appeared on  stage bearing a large Greek flag. The Greeks went crazy! They cheered and applauded him and again touched by his move, started calling him with his Greek name “Giorgos! Giorgos! Giorgos!”

Due to security restrictions, I was able to only take some photos via my mobile phone, but as you know, quality is low, plus the fact that from the place I was seating, distance was another obstacle. Nevertheless, I hope to obtain some better pictures tomorrow, so I will post them here, plus more comments and details.

UPDATE > 27 July 2007

For those who wish to view and read more about George’s or Giorgo’s Athenian live, the Greek MadTV (well, the Greek reply to MTV) has a related page with details from his concert, sort of a live update and presentation of the concert’s highlights.
