Thriller in London: Michael Jackson's 'This Is It' Tour

The King of Pop hasn't performed in public in a decade. Will he make it to the stage?

Friday, May 22, 2009

The King of Pop says "This is It." That's what Michael Jackson is calling a 50-consecutive-night comeback he's planning for London this summer. It's been more than a decade since Jackson, now 50, has performed on stage. Despite rumors that he'll appear for only 12 minutes each night -- and questions about whether the show will even come off at all -- fans are already scrambling for the pricey tickets. For more, The Takeaway turns to Britain's Chris Hawkins, a presenter on the BBC's 6Music radio station. He hasn't been able to score a ticket yet himself.
