Praying for More Time with George Michael

And I don't mean George Michael from Arrested Development, although he's cool too and it's a pity there's not a 4th season.

On Thursday, October 26th we went back to our school days and witnessed a legend in action. There were naysayers who thought he would sing off key and that he had lost his magic, but I assure you he did not disappoint. George Michael took the stage at Hallendstadion with a bang. His stage was set up with three levels of his band on both sides of the stage. Once again these pictures are from my phone so I apologize for the poor quality, but you can kind of get an idea. The band is where the blue lights are shining.

It was quite a spectacle. We were dancing fools to old Wham hits like "Everything She Wants" and "I'm Your Man." We heard some lively songs including "Fast Love" as well as classics like "Father Figure," "Faith," and "Praying For Time."

We started on the left side of the crowd and after intermission moved a little closer and to the right. This is the best crowd we had seen so far at any concert in Zurich and it consisted mostly of people our age and older. You can't go wrong with these tunes. Everyone was out of their seats, singing & dancing. There was no banter from GM, he performed like a professional and sounded fantastic. After two encores he ended with "Freedom " but I could have stayed there all night listening to every song he's ever done. GM, I'm your fan and you did it right.

I do just want to remind people that you need to look in the upper right corner of the post to see who wrote it. Chizzy makes a rare appearance here so I just wanted to clarify that although the concert was fun I am not his #1 fan.

What about that Wham! T-shirt you used to wear around the frat house?

I was told I needed to make the new guy from San Jose feel welcome at the new chapter.
