AEG will give a full refund to fans who purchased tickets to Michael Jacksons' This Is It tour at the O2 Arena. If they want a ticket as a souvenir though, they will have to pass on the refund.

Seriously?  What about a $10-15 charge for the ticket instead?  The full amount of the ticket they will have to pass on?  Ouch.

What do you guys think about that?-Dr.FB

  1. I’m not familar with how promoters or companies like AEG works — Do they purchase any type of insurance to cover themselves for their investments ? For example : what would have happend if the set would have accidently caught fire ? or was dystroyed in transit to the O2 ? –

  2. In fairness, Didn’t AEG put up a lot of money in set design, rehearsal space, paying crews (maybe even paying MJ)… ETC to start preparing for the concert series?

    Is it unreasonable that they try things to curb the loss that those investments took, I mean the Tickets WILL be valued memorabilia afterall.

  3. I think the ticket holders should get the purchase price of the tickets back and be able to keep the actual tickets — AEG made $$$ off of the fees — that should be enough for them.

  4. Wow!Printing up a ticket must be outrageous!!!Seriously the cost of a ticket they think is worth that much huh? Whatever happened to people just doin the right thing?They should give the fans a copy of the ticket if they want one…big deal! I think just like Joe Jackson all they say were those $$$$ signs! Maybe what they should do is put together a tribute concert of artists in honor of Michael Jackson to commemorate that date!

  5. Let the milkage begin

  6. I think AEG contributed to Michael’s death by signing him up for 50 shows.
    They are a bunch of bloodsuckers. People should just get their refunds and don’t let them exploit Michael and his fans for one minute longer.

  7. I think is all fair. The tickets will be worth major bucks in the future, so no one is really loosing if they hold on to them.
