Michael Jackson to announce Tour Dates Starting in London


Michael Jackson to announce Tour Dates Starting in London


Talking about ticket frenzy and concert anticipation, Michael Jackson one of Janet Jackson’s older brothers might be the first to sellout a concert before it is scheduled.  The Association of Secondary Ticket Agents (ASTA) has warned fans to be aware that people might be selling fake tickets to Michael Jackson London O2 Arena concerts and other European stops, where he was offered $1 Million per night to perform.  They said people are selling tickets online for concerts that have not been scheduled yet.


Many of the ticket agents are guaranteeing there tickets at face value.  So it is like you can purchase from these agents at your own risk, but it is an unfair practice, because the concerts dates have not even been announced.  So for many Michael Jackson fans you are damned if you do and damned if you do not, because buying early can result in illegitimate tickets purchases and not buying early can result in being late to the gate.  I guess the fans know their ticket agents well enough to make an informed decision.  Life is unfair isn’t it?  Michael is still that hot!


Since the frenzy Michael announced 10 shows @ the 02 Arena in London, perhaps buying those tickets was like buying stock and they gained instant value?
