Yesterday, Today, & FOREVER The King of Pop

The Michael Jackson economic stimulus package

May 8, 2009

Michael Jackson is being touted as an unlikely saviour of the economic crisis thanks to his mammoth residency at London‘s O2 Arena.


The
King Of Pop has sold out 50 dates at the
venue, with the shows tipped to bring in £1 billion for the economy,
according to second-hand ticket website
Seatwave.com.

Joe Cohen, chief executive of Seatwave, told BBC 6Music how beneficial he thinks Jackson‘s gigs are likely to be.


"There’s gonna be somewhere near on a billion pounds worth of economic activity brought to
London through hotels, restaurants, shops, pubs, people coming to see
Michael Jackson," he said.


He continued: "It’s the
Michael Jackson economic stimulus package that the tax payer isn’t paying a penny for."

Cohen added that Seatwave has sold in excess of 10,000 second-hand tickets for Jackson‘s gigs, which kick off on July 8.

The King of Pop’s comeback tour outsold Kings of Leon, Coldplay,
Britney Spears, V Festival, AC/DC and Leonard Cohen combined! The most
anticipated event of 2009, This Is It even outsold the other first
quarter favourite, U2, by almost 2 to 1.

Unprecedented
demand for Michael Jackson Tickets has proven that he is still the one
and only king of pop. "This is It" after all, so don’t miss out; get
