"However we had thousands of messages and calls from fans begging us to change it to the weekend so they had time to travel in," he said, adding that people had travelled in from Greece, Italy, Vienna, Germany and the United States to attend.

Fans of the late George Michael celebrate his music at a tribute night event. "I'd much rather be here saying 'I can't believe George just won an Oscar' or 'George just did this'," said the event's host Julian Bennett, who was a friend of the late singer. "I think we go through life thinking people are indestructible, but unfortunately they're not and 2016 is proof of that." REUTERS/Peter Nicholls

"Childhood soundtrack, foundation of friendships, lonely days, joyful dances, cheesy sing alongs - all scream George. Lovely, genuine, funny man of ours. Lots of love," one note read.

"As a gay man growing up around a lot of straight men, listening to George Michael gave me a sense of release," he said. "In my deepest, loneliest of times, his music was a source of comfort to me."
