The fans can't believe he's really coming - and ticket sales have proven just how excited they are.”
"I've always heard that it's just beautiful down there, and everybody I know that's been there has loved it,” said JACKSON. “I’ve heard that the AUSTRALIAN people are really warm and welcome people from the U.S. so generously. That's all I've ever heard - just great things. Great things."
