GEORGE MICHAEL DELAYED BY STING AND THE BOSS

Some gossip as it is summer :-). George Michael was forced to delay his flight to Boston, Massachusetts by one hour on Sunday (27 July 2008) – because Sting and Bruce Springsteen were given priority by air traffic controllers. The Fast Love hitmaker, who is currently performing his first tour of North America in 17 years, was expected to fly out from Teterboro Airport in New Jersey on Sunday evening. But Michael’s private jet was delayed three times – because Sting and Springsteen were waiting to take off from the same airport, and were allowed to leave first. Former Wham! singer Michael only just made it to his Boston concert in time, reports the New York Post’s gossip column PageSix. A source tells the publication, “He was first delayed by the weather. Then he had to wait for Sting’s plane to take off. And, finally, he had to wait for a plane carrying Bruce Springsteen. All the jets were jockeying for position.”
