George Michael’s home in Highgate, and mainly the open space opposite it, has become a shrine to the singer since his death in 2016. It has since been removed, but we look back at the space.
His death on Christmas Day, 2016, at the age of 53 has meant many of his fans have travelled to the area to pay their tributes. Flowers, candles, photographs, poems are all left in the open space outside of the house on The Grove, Highgate.
George Michael was a celebrity not wanting much of the spotlight, and family members say that he wouldn’t have wanted a statue as a tribute. Visitors leave their own reminders as an homage to the great singer.
The performer and songwriter, real name Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou, was born in East Finchley in 1963, and was regularly seen in Camden Town.
He formed a duo called Wham! with Andrew Ridgeley and went solo in 1987.
