George Michael to celebrate album release with photography exhibition

Music legend George Michael has announced details of a photographic exhibition that will celebrate the release of his brand new album, 'Symphonica'

He will host the event between March 4 and 7 at Hamiltons Gallery in Mayfair, London ahead of the release of the highly anticipated new record, which will drop on March 17 through Virgin EMI/Universal. 

The images that will make up the exhibition were taken during his sold-out world tour 'Symphonica', which saw him perform around the globe in stunning locations with a full orchestra. On the exhibition's opening night, Michael will hold an exclusive listening party for the album. 

He recently defended his decision to erase the live audience from his recording of single 'Let Her Down Easy' on Twitter, explaining that radio stations simply won't play live tracks so he had to edit the way the song sounded: "Good Morning campers! Just out of interest, Let her down easy is indeed a live vocal, but radio these days won't any live or live sounding..."

"Sorry I meant radio won't PLAY any live or live sounding tracks on the radio on their playlists anyore, so we had to go in and get rid of all audience sounds off the track... I know I don't understand it either, all I can thank god for is that it's a recent development."
