Tribute acts can be a mixed bag, but Rob Lamberti is one of the best in the business.

George will honour the music of George Michael, from his days in Wham! to his many iconic solo hits.

The new live show will see Rob Lamberti joined by the world-renowned National Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, as well as original members of the George Michael Band.

The tour will launch in Cardiff on April 24, 2019, and will then take in various concert halls and theatres before concluding in Southampton on May 12.

The show will feature everything from 'Wake Me Up Before You Go Go' to 'Careless Whisper' to 'Faith', and promises to be the best possible tribute to George Michael.
