George Michael seeking help for anxiety

The singer said on his website he had hoped making music and performing would be enough to work through it but that he underestimated how hard his recovery would be.

The 49-year-old former Wham! front man was to perform in Sydney and other Australian cities in November and early December.

He still has concerts scheduled this month in the United Kingdom. They are makeup dates for shows he cancelled after being hospitalised for pneumonia in Vienna in November.
