Today the reclusive King of Pop, Michael Jackson, announced a series of concerts that he described as: “…the final curtain call.” Jackson appeared at the O2 Arena in London where he says he will perform 10 concerts beginning July 8.
Along with the media, there were several hundred fans on hand to hear the announcement. Jackson promised: “This is it. I’ll be performing the songs my fans want to hear.” Jackson has not staged a major concert in more than a decade. The superstar now 50, has had health, financial, and legal problems, but is still loved by many of his fans.
The eccentric singer has not released a solo album since 2001. His most popular, “Thriller” from 1982, is the best selling album of all time. It is estimated that Jackson has sold more than 750 million albums worldwide.
