Washington, Mar 16 (ANI): London O2 Arena owners have revealed that Michael Jackson's comeback gig, which will take place in July, has gathered such an incredible response that the one-time pop king could have sold the venue for two years.
It has earlier been reported that the Michael mania has gained momentum, and more and more fans want to see his comeback gig.
Over a million fans bought tickets to the shows, with agents shifting an average of 33 seats per minute.
The AEG people, who convinced Michael to return to the limelight are, more than happy to see the reaction.
"We never thought '50 shows' and frankly based on the queues on Ticketmaster, plus the 300,000 registrants we still haven't issued codes to, we could spend two years here," Contactmusic quoted Randy Phillips, head of AEG, as saying.
"Mike (Michael Jackson) asked me how long he would be in the United Kingdom for and I told him, probably long enough to get a British passport. Michael's already pretty much put together a list of the dancers he wants. Michael's very engaged now," he added. (ANI)
