Michael Mania

Big news from across the pond:

Tickets for Michael Jackson's 50 live dates at London's O2 arena have sold out, meaning that a staggering one million tickets to see the singer have been bought in a matter of hours....Those not lucky enough to secure a ticket can head to eBay to buy them second hand, providing they are prepared to pay between £170 and £10,000.

Obviously I'm not a cultural critic or anything, but seriously?  A million people still want to see Michael Jackson?  WTF?
