It's been a while to wait for George Michael,'s fans but they're finally getting to see the pop legend playing live again after a year that's seen the former Wham! man battle back to recover from pneumonia contracted shortly before he was due to play Vienna in 2011. It was that city where he re-started his Symphonica tour earlier in the month, and he finally made a return to Scotland over the weekend, playing the first of two nights at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre in Glasgow (September 23rd).

"I know you had to wait a year and I know it's been a tough year," said the 49 year-old to the crowd according to The Independent, thanking them for their patience whilst he got better from his illness. Michael hasn't forgotten the battle he had last year; at Vienna earlier in the month he put aside 1000 tickets to the medical staff of the hospital who saved him as a thank you, and whilst performing at the Olympic Closing Ceremony he elected to perform his last single 'White Lights' which references is struggle with the illness.

At Glasgow, as on the other dates, he elected to sing a mixture of his own and other people's hits, the results being decidedly mixed, according to The Independent - New Order's True Faith and Rihanna's Russian Roulette taking a particular butchering. Nevertheless, hits like Amazing and Freedom 90 ensured that the fans went home happy.
