When singer George Michael passed away aged only 53 in 2016, Sydney DJs and producers Paul Mac and Jonny Seymour commissioned a mural of Michael outside their home in Newtown. It became a site of cultural importance to Sydney's LGBTQIA+ community, and it was devastatingly destroyed by vandals soon after the result of the marriage equality vote was announced. Now, Mac has teamed up with playwright Lachlan Philpott to create a musical experience as a fitting tribute to Saint George, while also serving as both a celebration of queer culture and a defiant reminder that freedom is always worth fighting for. Tickets for this show are at capacity, however, you can join the waitlist by clicking through to 'buy tickets'.
