Entertainment behind the scenes
Is Jacko really set to thrill again?
News that Michael Jackson is flying to London this week to make a “special announcement” on Thursday sparked a flurry of expectations that he is planning a series of comeback concerts in the British capital later this year.
Such a comeback has been much talked about since the pop superstar’s acquittal in 2005 in California on charges of molesting a young boy.
Hard-core Jackson fans around the world, particularly those in Japan, have remained faithful to their idol. But at the age of 50, and more than 25 years after reaching the apex of his career with the album “Thriller”, can Jackson still put on a full-scale show?
And, more to the point, would you pay to go and see it?
