Look-a-like rumors as Michael Jackson sells out 50 shows at the O2 Arena in London

What initially was announced as 10 shows at London’s O2 Arena quickly turned into an unprecedented 50 show run. 50 arena shows! That’s 750,000 tickets.  What makes it even more mind-boggling is that they all sold-out in a matter of hours.

The first thought on my mind was, “How is Jacko going to be able to perform 50 shows?” Now granted, there is at least a day off scheduled between each show and in some cases several days. Then, after the first 30 shows, he takes 3 months off before starting up again. But regardless, he hasn’t toured in years and his health and psyche have constantly been in question.

The Daily Mail ran an article claiming that the person at the press conference announcing the shows last week was not Michael Jackson, but actually a look-a-like. Whether that’s true or not, I don’t know, but I do have a feeling that in order to play 50 arena shows, they’ll be needing some look-a-likes to pull-off those signature dance moves of days gone by. How many of those 50 shows do you think will actually happen? I’m going with 1.  Video announcement with some great footage below.

All tour dates after the jump.
