We’re still not sure that he’ll even make it on stage (British oddmakers are even taking the bets), but Michael Jackson has added 16 more concerts to her run at London’s O2 Arena.
According to Billboard, that brings the total number of shows to 26. The first 10 shows have yet to go on sale to the general public. Pre-sale tickets for the first shows went on sale today for those who registered through www.michaeljacksonlive.com. AEG Live, which is promoting the shows, told Billboard that 10 shows sold out their pre-allocation amount. That amount is believed to be 50% of the total tickets available.
The general public can buy tickets starting March 13.
The 26-date run now spans July 8-Sept. 10. Prices are $68.82 to $103.23. Prince played 21 dates at the same venue in 2007.
