George Michael hints at tour plans

Music icon George Michael has hinted at the possibility of a tour after slamming the fickle nature of the media in a recent tweet. 

The star, who released a cover of New Order's 'True Faith' for Comic Relief, has set tongues wagging after a recent message on social networking site Twitter alluded to a potential string of live dates. 

He wrote (March 21):

"Face it paps, hackers and haters...the album will sell great, the tour will sell out in hours...."

"And my fans remain some of the loyalest people on the planet.... Nothing you can do about that..."

"So keep swinging at me....it's quite fun that you still love to hate me!!"

The last shows he did were back in 2008 and were billed as 'The Final Two' so this new comment could be seen as a hint at a live comeback. When asked in an interview with Mark Goodier if he was working on a new record, he responded with:

"Well, I'm working on a live project, which will hopefully be an album before the end of the year and then there's a studio album - which is going to take a little longer to make but there will hopefully be some other releases from it this year."
