Michael Jackson: Final Ticket


Nicht sehr überraschend wollen MJ-Fans die Tickets zu den anberaumten 50 Konzerten in London nicht hergeben. Wundert mich so gar überhaupt nicht, ich würde mein Ticket auch behalten.

The promoter, AEG Live, said on Monday that they would begin refunds on July 1 of the 750,000 tickets that were sold for Jackson’s planned 50-date concert tour in London’s 02 stadium.

But when asked, the promoter acknowledged that some large segment of fans would probably choose not to take the refund.

“We have also heard that thousands of fans who would like to keep the tickets they were to receive as a keepsake,” said a spokesman for AEG Live when asked about the issue. “We are happy to provide the opportunity for those fans to acquire their actual show ticket in lieu of receiving the refund."

This means that reports that AEG Live would take a huge financial hit -- reported to be an $85 million loss -- from the cancellation of Jackson’s concert are unlikely to come to pass.
