Jackson Says Sayonara To Tokyo

JacksonMichael Jackson’s much-ballyhooed Christmas appearance in Tokyo has been nixed.
The singer was scheduled to meet and greet fans in the Japanese city’s Studio Coast on December 19, but his spokeswoman now says that the event won’t happen. Instead, he will appear at a “Fan Appreciation Day” in Tokyo in March, and some are saying that tickets sales were sluggish because of high prices.
The price of the tickets had elicited shock and some outrage among fans, with some tickets costing as much as $3,300 — for the opportunity to meet, greet and be photographed with the star; $1,600 bought merely the meet and greet. Eventually cheaper tickets costing about $425 were added, but outrage over the prices, which didn’t even include a performance, continued to grow.
“We want to be as inclusive as possible to all of Michael’s fans,” Broderick Morris, CEO, Positive Productions, the company staging the event said in a statement, announcing the new event. Prices and the venue for that event have not been posted.
