George Michael has played the first of his "final" major concerts but suggested he is not ready to retire from singing.
The pop star announced that he has written a Christmas song, which will be released as a festive single.
Michael revealed the plans at the first of a pair of shows billed as the "Final Two" at Earls Court in London.
The second is on Monday. But he will also play another gig billed as the "Final One" in Copenhagen on Saturday.
Michael has said he will leave the "bells and whistles" of large-scale tours behind after that because he wants a "quieter life".
He has been on the road for almost two years with his 25 Live world tour - which was his first outing for 15 years.
The pop icon played a mixture of hits and rarities for the loyal crowd at the first night at Earls Court.
Fans had travelled from as far afield as the US, Australia and Mexico for the concerts.
Michael started the night with Fast Love, telling the audience: "It's good to be home."
He seemed to enjoy the reaction from the party crowd, and if he is fed up of performing, he hid it well.
