John Foreman to Perform the Music of George Michael with 30-piece Orchestra

Melbourne maestro, Music Director John Foreman will pair some of the Australia’s greatest vocalists with a 30-piece orchestra to perform the music of George Michael in October for ‘George Michael: Listen To Your Heart’.

The two shows planned for Melbourne and the Gold Coast will feature the voices of Hugh Sheridan, Rob Mills, Andrew De Silva, Prinnie Stevens, Bobby Fox with Sheldon Riley & Chriddy Black.

The shows are presented by Craig McMahon of McMahon International. “George Michael is honoured in a truly loving way, with John (Foreman)’s stunning musical direction and a cast of exceptional singers, all of whom share a deep connection to this iconic singer-songwriter and his remarkable catalogue of music spanning pop, soul and disco.

“Not only does John weave his musical magic in this production, but he also engages the audience as our narrator taking us on a journey through George Michael’s life, which was cut way too short.”

The vocalists were chosen for their unique ability to portray the various styles of George Michael’s career. Prinnie Stevens brings the R&B, Andrew De Silva the soul, Rob Mills and Bobby Fox the stage presence and The Voice voices Sheldon Riley and Chriddy Black for additional vocals.

The show weaves through George’s Wham and solo hits with a custom light show.
