Michael Jackson Comeback - Weitere Details bekanntgegeben

Wie bereits berichtet, wurde an diesem Donnerstag das Konzert-Comeback von Michael Jackson bestätigt. Jetzt wurden einige weitere Details bekannt.

Das erste, der insgesamt zehn geplanten Konzerte in der 20.000 Zuschauer fassenden O2-Arena in London soll laut der Webseite am 8. Juli stattfinden. Der Kartenvorverkauf beginnt ab dem 13. März.

Weiter wurde ein entsprechendes Plakat veröffentlicht, welches die geplanten Konzerte verkündet.

10-date Jacko comeback launch spoilt by posters

Michael Jackson was due to make a “special announcement” in London this afternoon, but has had his thunder stolen after posters were put up throughout the underground revealing he will play 10 concerts at the 02 arena this July.

The red promotional posters, featuring the onetime King of Pop in his trademark trilby, appeared on Tube trains today - officially announcing the capital’s worst-kept secret. Rumours had been swirling even before his publicist revealed, earlier this week, that he would make an announcement today.

A website - - also launched ahead of the official announcement, revealing to any fan who signed up for more information that the singer will begin his 02 run on July 8, with tickets going on general sale on March 13.

Despite the posters’ and website's appearance, the singer is still expected at the 02 arena later this afternoon to address an already-waiting press swarm.

The revealed 10-night run is shorter than anticipated, but will be a relief to some fans who wondered if the fallen superstar could fill the 20,000-capacity arena night-after-night.

Since arriving in the capital on Tuesday, he has failed to whip followers into the type of frenzy synonymous with his presence prior to his child molestation trial. Despite the fact that he was acquitted of all charges, only a clutch of them have gathered at the central London hotel where he has been staying and there have been doubts over whether he can cope with a long run because of a history of health problems and disastrous comeback attempts.

Jackson suffered stage fright at the 2006 World Music Awards, held in London, and was unable to perform his smash hit Thriller. Another singer had to step in before he shuffled on stage and got through just one verse and one chorus of We Are The World.

Last year he attempted a recording comeback, collaborating with Black Eyed Peas star, but the track drew little interest.

As the singer’s career has collapsed, his financial problems have soared. He is currently suing an auction house that is selling belongings recovered from the Neverland ranch he lost possession of last year.

He is also fighting a law suit from Thriller director John Landis, who claims he hasn’t received his share of the famous video’s profits for four years.
