Michael Jackson Confirms London Concert Dates
After announcing the 10-date run and the opening July 8 show at a press conference last week at the O2 Arena, the nine other dates have been announced. They are billed as his last ever shows in London.
The other dates for the AEG Live-promoted shows at the 23,000-capacity venue are: July 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 22, 24, 26, 28. Further dates are set to be confirmed if the 10 dates sell out as expected.
Fans can visit michaeljacksonlive.com or text for a chance to get access to the ticket presale, which begins 7am GMT March 11. The general sale begins 7am GMT on March 13 and tickets are priced £50 ($68.94) to £75 ($103.41).
AEG Live says there has been a huge amount of registrations from around the world, stating that the "requests for tickets from France alone would practically fill an O2." There are reports of one million registrations.
Jackson, who has returned to the US for rehearsals, is "ecstatic" at the response according to a statement.
