SINGER George Michael told fans it was good to be home as he performed in London at the end of a two year tour. He spoke to fans at the first of two arena shows at Earls Court in London - which mark a final farewell after more than 100 concerts. The star played hits Fastlove, I'm Your Man and Father Figure before saying: "It's great to be home I have to tell you. "When we were last here I think we were probably on show 20 of this tour and I honestly thought it was going to be a three month tour and here we are two years later. "You are going to be the recipients of 103 shows' experience." Michael's 25 Live Tour began in Barcelona in September 2006 and he has entertained more than 1.3 million fans across Europe and North America. The 21 date American leg of the tour was the first time he has performed there for 17 years and included New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Chicago and Washington. His London gigs include several songs not previously performed in Britain. Michael told fans that he would be releasing a new Christmas song on Christmas Day which would be free to download. He is also releasing a cover version of Nina Simone's hit Feeling Good, also free to download, on the same day. - Telegraph
