George Michael's first tour in 15 years opened with a political satire featuring cartoon bestiality.

The singer began with a passionate rendition of his 2002 political track, Shoot The Dog, and as he sang the anti-war number, which portrayed Tony Blair as George Bush's poodle, a cartoon backdrop showing Bush, Blair and the Prime Minister's wife, Cherie, in bed together, emerged.

While the song itself has gained in resonance over the years, George used it to unveil the Barcelona show's most shocking visual image. An enormous balloon, a grotesque cartoon version of the American President, rose out of the centre of the stage, hovering menacingly above the singer.

When the star leaned down to unzip the balloon's trousers, out popped a British bulldog draped with the UK flag. The dog was stuck to the balloon's inflated crotch, wagging its tail, reports the Daily Mail.

On stage for two hours and 20 minutes, he ran through 23 of the songs that have made him a multimillionaire with 85 million record sales under his belt.
