Edit +6hours: Ok guys I have calmed down a little bit since this morning when I just woke up to follow the conference while being in a frenzy to get to class…and now I am somewhat still super elated like on some kind of freak heroine high but um, it wasn’t like this morning. Trust me.

ANYWAYS, here is the scoop taken from the official website:

Michael Jackson has announced today that he is returning to the stage for a historic 10 shows at the O2 Arena performing in London for the last time. The King of Pop performs his greatest hits for the event of the summer, the concerts of 2009 and the decade’s hottest gigs. This really is ‘It’!

One of the most eagerly awaited returns to the stage of all time, Michael Jackson has not played a series of concerts since he last toured 12 years ago. These dramatic shows promise an explosive return with a band of the highest calibre, state-of-the-art stage show and incredible surprise support acts.

OMFG I AM GOING TO TRY TO GET AS MANY TICKETS AS POSSIBLE. Hhmmmm flying to London is actually quite cheap from Montreal, no?

AND NOTICE, “as this will be his only concerts in the WORLD this year!”. What does this mean!? Do you think he’ll add more dates next year? To be honest I hope he doesn’t go all “reunion” crazy and add a whole bunch of shows similar to the likes of what most artists in this context tend to do. Great, having more shows means more fans being able to go. But at the same time, it makes it less special to me for some reason…let’s not have like a 50 gig blow out ’cause that’s like ending a TV series a few seasons too late, when the characters and scripts become bland and dull, losing it’s flare from it’s peak years.

Ten gigs for the world to remember. Ten gigs for the white shining gloves and polished moon dancing shoes to show that Michael Jackson still has it…to showcase to the world yet again why he is one of the most influential artists of our time, transforming music and music videos into beacons of fluid inspiration forever into music as we know it today. All the while in the midst of his success and in the dust of his hiatus of nearly 12 years we grow, millions upon millions of fans growing, dancing, hollering and breaking world records. Millions of adoring fans such as myself hoping to be so lucky to even get one ticket.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?! WILL YOU BE GOING?! ARE YOU EXCITED?! GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!
