George Michael was fined £130,000 for overrunning Wembley gig for 13 minutes on July 13, 2007.

Michael, the first performer to play the new venue, sang two extra songs for the 80,000 fans after the deadline for ending the concert had finished.

As per the Wembley Stadiumís rules, all performers are required to sign agreements confirming they will finish on time, failing to do which they may be fined 10,000 pounds per minute.

"Wembley has strict rules that gigs must finish at an agreed time or face a fine for each minute they continue. George slipped in two extra songs and racked up a huge bill, but was enjoying himself so much he didn't care," the Scotsman quoted a source as saying.
