The Rolling Stones Would Need To Do A 73 Night Run At o2 Arena To Meet Ticket Demand

The demand for the 2 shows at the o2 Arena for the Rolling Stones is so high, the arena organizers are stating that only if they did 73 shows at the arena would the demand be met.

There have already been over 1 million ticket searches so far for the 2 shows there and tickets have not went on sale.

Viagogo, an online ticket broker states it is the highest demand for a ticket event ever.

The Stones will play at London's O2 Arena on Nov. 25 and 29 and then perform at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey near New York City on Dec. 13 and 15.

The arena only holds 15,000 seats so with a million searches, the band would have to play 73 shows there just to meet the online demand.

Viagogo added “The Rolling Stones are a global phenomenon - and one of the last super-groups still performing with a full line-up."

They really would never stop if they did a 73 night run at the o2 Arena.-DocFB

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

The ever sensible man-child Michael Jackson has always been the eccentric one and it seems this time, he is doing it again.

Rumors (I must stress rumors) are floating around that Michael Jackson wants AEG to build him a Neverland Ranch style place close to the O2 Arena.  He is rumored to be renting a $24 million estate in Kent while there and wants that place turned into Neverland.

It seems crazy but we wouldn't put it past him.  We doubt it but we could so see it.  Can't you? Randy Phillips, where you at?-Dr.FB

Michael Jackson Doesn’t Eat Enough To Give His Fans 50 Shows, Sorry Folks

Jackson has told his fans who stood outside his LA dance studio he is angry with his concert promoters for booking 50 shows at the O2 in London.  He wanted to take his concert across the globe, he just wanted to perform a handful of shows at the O2 Arena. Unfortunately, it didn't go as HE planned. Instead Jackson got a whopping 50 date residency after the first ten sold out within minutes.

After dance practice, Michael, 50, greeted tons of fans waiting outside and blew off some anger in the process.

Jackson said:

"Thank you for your love and support. I want you guys to know I love you very much. I don't know how I'm going to do 50 shows.  I'm not a big eater~ I need to put some weight on."

"I'm really angry with them booking me up to do 50 shows.  I only wanted to do 10, and take the tour around the world to other cities, not 50 in one place".

He claims to have went to bed knowing he sold out his 10 dates and woke up to the news he was booked for 50.

I don't believe this crap for one second. We all know there won't be 10 or, um hum, 50 shows.  If fans are lucky, they will get two.

Michael Jackson’s o2 Residency To Be Cancelled?

Is Michael Jackson's residency at the O2 Arena finished before it starts?  If a manager/concert promoter  from New Jersey has his way, it will be.

Allgood Entertainment (AGE, not AEG or AIG) say they have a signed contract that Michael's long time manager Frank Delio signed back in December 2008 of a Jackson 5 Reunion concert.  Now, although Michael never signed the contract himself, Delio was acting for Michael and the contract is legally binding.  AGE is wanting ALL the O2 shows cancelled. 

AEG's (Not AGE or AIG) Randy Phillips has yet to respond but rumors are reporting that all plans for the O2 shows have been halted.  AEG bailed Mr. Jackson (Kinda like the AIG bailout) out of some serious debt issues before the O2 gigs were booked and are even rumored to be the ones who forked over the money to stop Michael's belongings to be auctioned off earlier this year.

AEG put all their eggs in one basket here.  With that being said, expect AEG to pull an AIG and bail Michael out of this one.  Too much money is to be lost to cancel those gigs.  Expect an agreement between AGE and AEG with AIG asking for some M O N E Y.-Dr.FB

Britney Spears will be performing at the O2 Arena in London next month at the  Dorchester Hotel and her list of hotel requests has leaked.  What are they?

  • A room that has "never" been smoked in at all.
  • Humidifiers in all areas.
  • A selection of the latest magazines.
  • A fresh selection of flowers that she will then arrange herself.
  • DVDs of her favorite Marilyn Monroe movies.
  • Books. Ideally, topical chick lit novels.
  • Lighting must be 100 watt bulbs - no low lighting.
  • Running routes for nearby Hyde Park. Also, horse-riding opportunities.
  • A list of different routes to the venue from the hotel to keep the paparazzi at bay.
  • Hmm. In all honesty, not too bad, not too freaky at all.  Her bodyguards will sleep outside her room.  No requests for Cheetos or other snacks.  The list is rather boring so for Brtiney, that is a surprise.-Dr.FB

    Video: Hey Jude Sing-A-Long

    This took place on Saturday and is another of the random videos being put together as commercials for T-Mobile. This is what they had to say:

    The exclusive 4 minute extended version of the moment 13,500 people spontaneously sang Hey Jude together in Trafalgar Square. Everyone involved arrived thinking they could be dancing - no-one had any idea how the event would unfold.

    Regardless, pretty cool. Yes, that is Pink in the crowd as she performed this weekend at the o2 arena.-Dr.FB
