George announced to the audience: "London, you have made the last night f****** perfect. It has truly been a privilege to play with these musicians for the last year and we want to say a big thank you to you all."

In the encore, George and his band playing songs 'Amazing', 'I'm Your Man' and 'Freedom 90'. 

The last words he ever said on stage, just before the end of the concert, were: "Thank you London, we love you – see you soon."
