Michael's run-on racks up

George Michael's inability to finish on-time has cost him a pretty penny; his gig launching Wembley stadium finished thirteen minutes after the agreed closedown point, for which michale has had to cough up a fine for at the rate of ten grand a minute - more, even, than the waiting charge on a London black cab.

George, apparently, doesn't mind a bit:

"Wembley has strict rules that gigs must finish at an agreed time or face a GBP10,000 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."

It's not known how many of the audience were enjoying themselves so much they were prepared to pay the babysitters for the overrun.
