Jackson To Play 50 Shows At London’s O2

michael-jacksonThe BBC is reporting that Michael Jackson has committed to playing 50 shows at London’s O2 – five times what was originally announced last week and twice what was rumored would be the maximum number of shows.

Some 360,000 pre-sale tickets have been sold so far and if all 50 dates sell out, Jackson will have sold a million seats for the run of shows.

In just the pre-sale phase, Jackson has already beat the previous record-holder for ticket sales at O2: Prince’s 21-night sold-out stint that sold over 350,000 tickets.

The rate of ticket sales has also set a new record: 33 tickets per minute.
