Michael Jackson is still the King!
According to concert promoters, tickets to Jacko's 11 scheduled comeback concerts in London sold out so quickly that they extended his run to 50 shows! The musical spectacular will begin July 8 at the O2 arena with the last one scheduled for February 24, 2010.
"Michael's already pretty much put together a list of the dancers he wants," Randy Phillips of promoters AEG Live told BBC Radio. "Michael's very engaged now."
All of a sudden it's like Michael is everywhere again. He was actually a recurring theme on my trip to Aruba. He just kept coming up. My favorite MJ moment on vacation had to be when my hair almost went on fire at this beach bar we were hanging out at. To alert me to the possible flames that were about to shoot from my head, instead of saying "Trace, you're hair is on fire," my cousin Steven proceeded to just point and scream "Michael Jackson! Michael Jackson!"
Luckily, I knew what he was talking about and was able to save myself from the nauseating smell of burnt hair for the rest of the night -- and have a hilarious story to share. Thanks, Michael -- and Cousin.
