The 50-year-old star made a rare public appearance to confirm his return to stage with the series of ten gigs in Londons O2 arena.

He described them as “the final curtain call” and “my final show performances in London.

“These will be the last shows in London. Whether he will go on from here around the world… this will be his last tour, he said.

“All he’’s agreed to are the London shows at this point,” he added.

Phillips revealed that AEG Live has a “broader relationship” with Jackson.
