Jacko tops all of Tixdaq’s ticket resale charts

By | Published on Tuesday 24 March 2009

Ticketing research firm Tixdaq has reported that not only did the million odd tickets available for Michael Jackson’s upcoming O2 residency sell out in record time, but the This Is It concerts have topped all three of their weekly ticket resale charts.

Tixdaq monitor how many tickets are being sold for any one artist on the secondary ticketing market, what the average price being paid for those tickets is, and what the average resale profits on each sale are. They publish weekly charts tracking the artists who have the most resales, the highest resale prices and the highest resale profits, and last week Jacko topped all three in the same week – the first artist to ever do so.

Commenting on that fact, Tixdaq Exec VP Steve Machin told CMU: “Clearly tickets for the record breaking Michael Jackson residency were priced to sell as the most expensive tickets cost only £75.00. Even now demand is unprecedented, and that is reflected in the resale charts as we are seeing a lot of the best tickets now being resold at their market value. The average resale price for Michael Jackson tickets last week was over £200”.

Elsewhere in Jacko news, the latest gossip is that Jackson is hoping to adopt a child while over here doing his O2 residency. According to tabloid reports, he’s consulting a British adoption agency about them finding another child to join his family while he’s over here. I think it’s fair to say any attempts by Jacko to adopt a British kid aren’t going to be without some controversy.
