Wacko Jacko Could Kick Ne-Yo to the Curb

3/7/2009 11:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Forget east coast, west coast beef -- Michael Jackson may be about to school Ne-Yo on pop star seniority.

jacko: exclusive details

MJ just announced ten tour dates at the O2 arena in London -- but there's a huge problem. Ne-Yo is scheduled to perform on one of the same nights -- and he's not planning to budge. Ne-Yo's rep tells us, "There is currently no change whatsoever to Ne-Yo's performance at the O2 arena in July ... the show is going on as planned."

Jackson's tickets are set to go on sale to the public March 13 and they're surprisingly affordable -- ranging from $70-105, plus booking fees. Sources tell us that MJ's shows could expand to over twenty-plus shows depending on demand.

In other words, Ne-Yo should expect to have his concert sometime in September.

It is pretty obvious that if tickets to MJ's concerts sell well then Ne-Yo will get the boot. But if ticket sales fizzle he will get to keep the date.

They'll just move it to the next night - I mean Jackson isn't going to perform 10 straight nights in a row.

Actually TMZ, over a million already pre-registered on MJ's site for tickets, which means Michael Jackson's shows will be COMPLETELY SOLD OUT 50 times over. O2 Arena only holds 20,000 people. Ne-Yo may have to wait until next year.

Michael Jackson's live site is getting 16,000 hits a minute.

And another thing, since over a million already pre-registered for tickets for the Michael Jackson concerts, next week the O2 folks and MJ will announce an additional 10 dates. But because of so many people, MJ's shows may extend to 3 years.
