George Michael gigs in Dublin, Belfast, Ireland

Ladies and Gentlemen, wake me up before you go-go!

George Michael hits Dublin on Wednesday 1st August, he’ll be playing a music gig at the Point Theatre and tickets are selling out fast so get them before the sun goes down.

If you can’t get them for the gig in Dublin on Wednesday, check the availability on Thursday 2nd August.

You might even be able to catch George in Belfast on Saturday night (4th August) at the Odyssey Arena. The Arena is Ireland’s largest indoor music venue with standing and seating facilities, so there’s more chance of getting a ticket.

Hopefully you’ll be able to get one with freedom to dance to your favourite tunes, with classics like Fastlove, Outside and some classic Wham thrown in for good measure – it’s sure to be a great night out.

The gigs in Dublin and Belfast are part of George’s extended 25 Live tour which saw him play an amazing live gig in Dublin last year. The music event in Belfast will be the first time he has ever played in the city and is sure to be a sell out. Order tickets online now from Dublin Events!

If you make it along, feel free to post reviews of the Dublin or Belfast gig below!
