London, Feb 23: The former 'King of Pop' Michael Jackson has chosen London as the venue for his long awaited comeback tour and is close to signing the deal with organizers to launch a spectacular 30 day concert series at London's O2 arena this summer.
The 50-year-old star is said to favour London over a US venue because he still enjoys huge popularity across Europe, the Daily Mail reported. The singer who according to some reports is suffering from many health problems including a lung infection and a skin disease plans to silence his detractors with the performances which might fetch him more than $2 million per night.
"It will be the greatest comeback in the history of pop and there would be no problem selling out the O2 every night. No-one is concerned about his reputation and people don't feel it is a risk. Organizers are confident people will come from all over the world to see him. There have been rumours about his health but that is not an issue. He is capable of doing all the shows," the organizers AEG Live said.
