More Jacko dates expected

By | Published on Monday 9 March 2009

Given reports last week, ahead of Michael Jackson’s shambolic appearance at The O2, that Jacko and promoters AEG planned to do as many Jacko shows at the Dome later this year as ticket sales demanded, it should be no surprise there are rumours Jacko will double the length of his residency from the current ten days to twenty days later this week.

Of course he has to do 22 shows to beat Prince’s record, though I seem to remember that Jacko/Prince rivalry was mainly manufactured by Smash Hits in the late 80s. It seems mad now that you’d pitch Jackson against Prince, but then again someone decided Oasis and Blur should be rivals in the 90s when they were clearly in totally different ball parks music wise. Anyway, I seem to have digressed.

The news here is that promoters of the Jacko Freak Show should announce extra dates this week.
