Washington, Mar 14 (ANI): Promoters of Michael Jacksons comeback gigs are threatening to sue a ticket agency for allegedly selling prized seats to another company.

AEG Live teamed up with Viagogo to market premium price packages for the highly anticipated shows at London’’s O2 Arena.

However, the ticket agency has been accused of breaking an agreement not to sell tickets to touts or other brokers and they are now planning to seek an injunction to protect the deal.

“My lawyers are going into court to seek an injunction, Contactmusic quoted Randy Phillips, chief executive of AEG Live as saying.

They (Viagogo staff) sent out an email to touts and brokers offering tickets for sale. We are going to come down very hard on them,” he added.

Jackson will be performing 50 shows at the O2 running into next year (2010) - a residency that will generate 100 million dollars in ticket sales alone. (ANI)
