Michael Jackson - the Answer to All Our Economic Problems!
I have just read about the huge demand for tickets to the concerts of the century, Michael Jackson's "This Is It" shows at the O2 arena. Reports over the last week have suggested 750,000 people registering for tickets that have a face value of £50 - 75 with the secondary resale market offering them for vastly inflated sums such as £500, £1,050 and even one report of a single ticket being offered for £20,000!
It seems incredible that in these harsh economic times so many people are apparently prepared, and able, to pay so much for tickets to a pop concert. Perhaps the answer to all our economic problems is simply to host more Michael Jackson concerts!
