AEG Live has now sold out of the presale ticket allocation for 30 shows. Michael Jackson has agreed to add more shows, so you still have a chance to get tickets on presale.

AEG Live knows that many of you have experienced frustrating delays so far and apologizes for these problems.

Demand for tickets is unprecedented, so please be patient and do keep trying.

If you have not yet been successful in purchasing tickets with your code, it WILL still work.

If you have registered but you haven’t yet received a presale code — there’s still a chance you will receive one tomorrow, so keep your eyes peeled and keep checking your inbox!

£500 for Michael Jackson comeback show tickets as promoter in secret deal

Fans desperate to see Michael Jackson’s comeback performances could have to pay more than ten times the face value of the tickets after the shows’ promoters struck a secret deal to sell the best seats at vastly inflated prices, The Times has learnt.

AEG Live, the company behind the concerts, has agreed with Viagogo, an online ticket reseller, to sell hundreds of so-called premium tickets for each performance at the 17,000-capacity O2 arena, in East London, at about £500 each, compared with their face value of between £50 and £75.

The move means that both AEG Live and Viagogo stand to make huge extra financial returns, while reducing the availability and standard of seats to those fans trying to buy seats through the official, “primary” route, via the Ticketmaster website.

About 10,000 tickets for each of the ten concerts announced last week went on sale yesterday morning on Ticketmaster to fans who had registered their interest on Jackson’s website. However, demand was so high that the website crashed, leading the promoters to announce another 20 dates – which also quickly sold out. It is thought that nearly 300,000 seats have been sold so far. The remaining tickets for each show will go on sale tomorrow.

But The Times understands that outside the official sale of the tickets, AEG Live approached secondary ticketing companies – which allow people to resell tickets to sporting and music events – offering to provide them directly with between 500 and 1,000 tickets for each performance.

It is thought that AEG Live offered the tickets on the understanding that they were sold at about £500 each, with 80 per cent of the revenue returning to AEG Live and the secondary ticketing company taking the remaining 20 per cent.

Last night tickets for seats closest to the stage were on sale on Viagogo for thousands of pounds. Other seats in prime locations seemed to be on sale at surprisingly uniform rates, with many priced at £418 and £659.

AEG Live did not deny its links to Viagogo. The company previously said in a statement: “In an effort to ensure fans are able to purchase premium tickets and exchange tickets directly with other fans, AEG Live has entered into an agreement with Viagogo. The online site allows people to buy and sell live event tickets in a safe and guaranteed way.”

A source close to AEG Live said: “This is the hottest ticket of the decade. To suggest that there won’t be a premium market is unrealistic. We want to make sure it is done properly and fans are not buying the tickets in some dodgy back alley. This is only a small minority of tickets. The aim all along has been to make sure that the majority of the arena is filled with real fans. There are systems in place to make sure people cannot buy multiple tickets and sell them on.”

Concert promoters have previously been against the secondary ticketing companies, which they accuse of promoting touting and depriving the live music industry of income.

AEG Live could face censure from the Concert Promoters Association, of which it is a member, if it is judged to have brought the organisation into disrepute through its actions.

Last month the Government announced a consultation into ticket touting and urged concert organisers to be innovative and come up with new ways of preventing touts from making money from selling on tickets.

Fans who signed up for ticket updates received an email last night saying: “We have now sold out of the presale ticket allocation for 30 shows. Michael Jackson has agreed to add more shows.” It is understood that the O2 has set aside 50 dates for Jackson if the demand exists.

Michael Jackson to do 50 O2 shows
By Simon Hayes on March 12, 2009 5:20 PM |

aa-mar12-mj3.jpgMichael Jackson will now be performing 50 shows at The O2 after more dates were added this afternoon.

The King of Pop's London shows, the last he said he would do in the capital, will now see him in residence at the arena between July 8 and February 24 next year - and there could be more to come.

The extra shows have been added in response to the huge clamour for tickets, which go on public sale at 7am tomorrow.

Over one million people will now have the chance to see the 50-year-old perform, and it looks like all the shows will sell out.

It means The O2 will set a whole tranche of new records as it confirms its status as the world's premier music venue.

It will be the biggest audience ever to see an artist in one city, the most amount of people to attend a series of arena shows and the fastest ticket sales in history.

Three-quarters of a million people in the UK alone have bought their tickets through the pre-sale and fans have been camped out at The O2 since last night awaiting the public sale.

Randy Phillips, president of AEG Live, said: "Not only are these concerts unparalleled, these records will never be broken.

"We knew this was show business history, but this is a cultural phenomenon."

It looks like being a thriller.

Fans are advised to stay tuned to michaeljacksonlive.com for additional show information.

The full list of dates is:

July 8/10/12/14/18/22/24/26/28/30

August 1/3/10/12/17/19/24/26/28/30

September 1/3/6/8/10/21/23/27/29

January 2010: 7/9/12/14/16/18/23/25/27/29

February 1/3/8/10/12/16/18/20/22/24
