The release was timed to celebrate the 35th anniversary of 'Careless Whisper's release, which arrives tomorrow (July 24).

The '25 Live' tour was the most commercially successful tour of 2006-2007 in Europe, taking in over $200 million.

George performed 106 shows in total, in 41 countries and seen by 1.3 million fans.

The Story of... 'Careless Whisper'

This was George's first tour in over 15 years, and began in Barcelona in September 2006. It was supposed to end at Wembley Arena that December, but due to overwhelming demand, it continued well into 2007.

A thid leg of the tour began in 2008, ending with two concerts at Earls Court named 'The Final Two'.
