VIDEO: George Michael Opens Up About His New Tour

Originally posted 06/16/2008 01:30PM



George Michael is set to kick off his highly-anticipated 25 LIVE tour Tuesday in San Diego – and the road trip is long overdue, the singer says in a video interview provided to PEOPLE exclusively. "I should have done it a long time ago," he says of the tour, which is his first in North America in 17 years. Calling the performance a "way better show" than anything he's done in the past, Michael says the performance will encompass material from his solo career and his time in Wham!

The singer's North American dates, which include stops in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Seattle, Vancouver, Minneapolis, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, New York, comes after a successful spate of European shows. "I've been doing a lot of work, changing [the show] and improving it," says Michael. "I'm dancing – or walking – on a stage that's completely illuminated."
