All 50 of Michael Jackson’s comeback/farewell concerts sold out within hours in the UK yesterday.
Sales of Michael Jackson’s just-announced comeback performances in London have been thrilling: his run of 50 U.K. concerts scheduled to begin on July 8 sold out five hours after tickets went on sale on Friday, according to promoters. The 50-year old pop star was originally slated to perform 10 concerts for his This Is It tour at London’s O2 Arena, but the overwhelming fan response – 750,000 tickets have been sold to date at the rate of 11 tickets per second – led organizers to expand the run to 50 shows, ending on February 24, 2010.
Tickets were £50 and £75, and are already re-selling online for thirty times face value. Wanna bet this “goodbye” tour goes like Cher’s has?
