George Michael Reborn featuring Robert Bartko



BUY TICKETS

On Oct. 29, the night before the 35th anniversary of the historic Faith album, the Six Bridges Book Festival transports you to The Edge of Heaven for a one-night-only performance of George Michael Reborn. This amazing must-see tribute to Wham! & George Michael stars Robert Bartko, who exudes the energy and passion of the superstar in the 80s and 90s. Robert’s spot-on looks, wardrobe, vocal range (no lip-syncing), dance moves, crowd interaction, and charisma leave audiences cheering for an encore. Close your eyes and you’ll swear you’re listening to the real deal. Amazing.

Bartko, a life-long fan of George Michael and Wham!, said that it was during his early high school years, when many began to point out a resemblance between the two. Bartko had a successful career as a solo recording artist and producer. Soon after the passing of his idol, he began dedicating his talents to pay tribute to the late superstar with an electrifying live show. He has thrilled audiences at clubs, concerts, private and corporate events, festivals and tribute shows throughout the country, including his recent sold-out “House of Blues” performance.

Doors open at 7pm and the show begins at 8pm. Tickets are $25 pre-event and $30 night of the show. Seating is general admission, so arrive early for the Freedom to choose the best seats. This tribute is sponsored by Meadors, Adams & Lee.
