After a 17-year hiatus, British rocker George Michael returns to North America on the third leg of his "25 Live" tour, his first visit to the States since 1991. Hits like "Faith" and "Monkey" made Michael a star, and his wild lifestyle kept him in the headlines for much of the '80s and early '90s. His newest release, Twenty Five, features new songs, including a duet with Beatles legend Paul McCartney, and old hits. Michael performs on Tuesday at 8 p.m. at the Verizon Center, 601 F St. N.W., Washington. Tickets are $55-$250. Call 410-547-7328 or go to ticketmaster.com.
