MICHAEL JACKSON announced on THURSDAY that he would perform a series of concerts in LONDON this summer, in what he called a "final curtain call," THE NEW YORK TIMES reported.
JACKSON, 50, revealed the details of the concerts at a news conference in LONDON, where he said he would perform 10 shows at the O2 ARENA, beginning JULY 8th.
"When I say this is it, I mean this is it," JACKSON said, according to REUTERS. "I’ll be performing the songs my fans want to hear."
The shows would be JACKSON’s first major performances since 2001 and 2002, when he appeared at a pair of 30th anniversary celebrations and two benefit concerts. His brief appearance at the WORLD MUSIC AWARDS in 2006 was booed by some audience members.
