July 1988, Michael is presented with then called ‘Video Vanguard Award’ right before he steps foot on the Wembley stage where he was to shatter yet more world records. 

Ticket demand for the five July dates exceeded 1.5 million, enough to fill the 72,000 capacity venue 20 times. Michael performed seven sold out shows, and more shows could have been added, but the venue had reached its quota for live performances. The third concert on July 16 was attended by Diana, Princess of Wales and Prince Charles. On September 8, Michael was entered into the Guinness World Records, the first of three times from the tour alone - the Wembley shows were attended by a record 504,000 people.
