Interested in seeing Michael Jackson live?
Michael Jackson has announced a series of concerts at London's O2 arena in July. He didn't specify how many shows he'll play. It is rumoured up to 50, although posters have shown he's booked for 10 dates.
Tickets are expected to sell quickly for the shows, despite concerns the 50-year-old star may not be up for a return to the spotlight. The King of Pop has been plagued by financial, legal, and medical woes for years and has not performed a major concert since 2001.
Are you interested in seeing Michael Jackson live? Can he make a comeback? Here is the latest selection of Your Views:
Yeaa, absolutely ! Michael Jackson is the undisputed 'King of Pop.' He has some funny ideas, has done some things he probably regrets but aren't all rock stars a bit eccentric. Putting that aside he is a world class entertainer, showman and dancer, his dance steps defining a generation.
The young people still strut out his moves. I think he can still cut it at 50 with his passion and youthful outlook. If you get a chance go and check him out, his stage presence, rig, contagious beat and lighting show are one of a kind.
You may not agree with his view on life but he is a very talented man who has sung and entertained from when he was old enough to walk, or perhaps that's 'Moonwalk.' In the words of Mr Jackson himself 'You have to feel the music.'
Michael Jackson has recorded more than 100 songs in secret, but is refusing to release the tracks until after his death, according to biographer Ian Halperin.
The singer has amassed a stack of tunes but only wants them to be heard by his children, 11-year-old Prince, 10-year-old Paris Katherine, and five-year-old Prince Michael II, after he dies, said Halperin, author of forthcoming book "Unmasked, The Michael Jackson Story".
Halperin said, "I was astonished by the number of songs which have been held back. I was told that he will not let them come out now but wants to leave them for his kids, a very personal legacy to them."
As for his Beatles' back catalog, it will go to Sir Paul McCartney.
