Michael Jackson feels too weak to do 50 showsJune 2nd, 2009 - 1:11 pm ICT by IANS
London, June 2 (IANS) Pop legend Michael Jackson is angry with the organisers of his shows in Britain for booking him up for 50 performances because he feels he is not physically strong enough.
The 50-year-old is worried he might not be able to cope with the gruelling schedule of his shows starting at the 02 Arena in London next month. He insists his small appetite makes it hard for him to perform, reported thesun.co.uk
“I don’t know how I’m going to do 50 shows. I’m not a big eater, I need to put some weight on,” said Jackson.
“I’m really angry with the organisers for booking me up to do 50 shows. I only wanted to do 10, and take the tour around the world to other cities, not 50 in one place. I went to bed knowing I sold 10 dates, and woke up to the news I was booked to do 50,” he added.
The concerts were due to start July 8, but the opening night has been pushed back five days with the others now scheduled for March.
