Jackos fans desperate to obtain seats at his final gigsMarch 9th, 2009 - 1:53 pm ICT by ANI
London, Mar 09 (ANI): Pop singer Michael Jackson may be going through a rough patch due to his bankruptcy and ill health, but his fan following seems unaffected, for zillions of them are desperate to obtain seats at his final concerts.
Although millions of fans are keen to attend Michaels 10 farewell concerts at Londons O2 arena, only 200,000 seats will be made available.
It is feared that touts might make big bucks by selling tickets worth 50 and 75 pounds for thousands.
A lot of fans are going to be disappointed, and the touts could make a killing, the daily Star quoted a source as saying.
They know people will pay through the nose to see Jackos last concerts, the source added.
On the other hand, the Heal the World hitmaker is not leaving any stones unturned to make his final concert a hit.
He recently made TV history by buying up the whole of a three-and-a-half- minute ad break during Dancing On Ice to promote his tour, through which he advertised his future London 02 arena concert.
The ad featured some of the hits he will perform, fans were also given details of how and where to book tickets. (ANI)
