George Michael to Pay $250,000 for Overran Concert


George Michael


George Michael was having too much fun during his Wembley concert that he spent an extra 13 minutes and gets fined for it.

Tapped to be the first act in newly-rebuilt Wembley stadium, George Michael is tangled in a finance situation. The singer is fined 130,000 or equal to $250,000 for the 13 extra minutes he spent for his show.

The concert that took place June 9 ignored the rules set by Wembley's officers. A source said, "Wembley has strict rules that concerts must finish at an agreed time or the acts face a 10,000 fine for each minute they continue. George slipped two extra songs into his set and racked up a huge bill. He was enjoying himself so much he didn't care."

George is fined despite his mutual relationship with the stadium in previous years. The singer played a show as Wham! back in 1986 as their final piece and also held a concert for Live Aid the year before. Another notable performance in the stadium was when he joined a line of artists paying tribute to the late Freddie Mercury in 1992.

A Wembley spokesperson said, "Wembley can issue fines for concerts that overrun, but that's between Wembley and the concert promoters."
