Jackson Announces Shows

Thousands of fans were at the O2 Arena to see the gigs announced...

Michael Jacksonhas announced 10 dates at the O2 Arena- which will be his last ever in London.

Speaking on stage at the venue he said: "This is it. I just want to say that these will be my final show performances in London."
 
The shows start on July 8 with tickets on sale from March 13. Prices start at £50.
 
Around 5,000 fans were at the O2 Arena in London where the star took to the stage and announced "I love you so much!"
 
The singer has not played full live shows since 1997 so its no surprise there is this much excitement. He has signed a three year deal with promoters AEG which is likely to see him also tour the world.
 
The lobby of the huge O2 Arena was used for the announcement with a stage set up for the so called ‘King of Pop.’
 
Jacko did not take questions from the assembled press.
 
It’s thought Michael will announce up to 30 dates at the 18,000 capacity venue eventually and that he could net £5 per show.
