London, April 10 (ANI): Animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has appreciated King of Pop Michael Jackson's decision to keep his comeback concerts animal free.
The 'Thriller' hitmaker came under fire from PETA after it was rumoured that the singer would include a variety of exotic creatures in his 'This Is It ' run at London's O2 Arena this summer.
However, organisers of the concerts have now confirmed no animals will be onstage at the gigs - and PETA bosses are pleased with the decision.
"Wild animals do not belong in noisy arenas surrounded by screaming fans and loud music," the Daily Express quoted PETA Europe Director Robbie LeBlanc as saying.
"We are thrilled that Michael won't compound his past mistakes by using animals in his final UK shows. Bubbles wouldn't have approved," LeBlanc added. (ANI)
