Jacko Postpones Shows

Blame Game Begins

5/20/2009 5:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Exclusive DetailsYou can't say you didn't see this coming -- Michael Jackson has already postponed his first four London concerts ... and the finger pointing has already begun.

Jacko's first show has been pushed back 5 days to July 13 and the other 3 were postponed until March of 2010. On the record, concert promoters are saying it's because they need more time to set up the complex stage -- but that's not what we heard.

Sources close to the situation tell us Jacko is pushing back the dates because he's physically unable to get through an entire show.

Guess we'll have to wait until July to find out ... unless he blows off those dates too.

It depends on one's perception of things...one may perceive time or space in a different paradigm. From your perspective it is a forward motion, However from the perspective of the average person it is a delay of an event from it'[s scheduled time and place there fore it is postponed. There is no misappropriation of terminology or conception to the average individual.

I heard before he started rehearsing the dance sequence, he made to love to Eileen Gatti's mother and recorded it on his Blackberry!

I wish God would take Michael Jackson gently into the palms of His Hands and blow Michael out into the Universe with no return ticket.

He still looks terrible! He needs to work on his PR before he starts concertizing. Why not just come clean about the botched plastic surgery? People will understand and sympathize with him.

If people really think they are going to see Michael Jackson perform like he did back in the day they need their head examined. Here is a man who is continually going to a medical center, walks around all covered up with a mask on, seen being pushed in a wheelchair numerous times and can't even be in the sun and now he is suppose to be doing 50 concert tours.

If he gets through one show I will be surprised. IMO, If he really gets on stage I guarantee you he won't be up there for long. His opening act and his back up dancers will be carrying most of the show...trust me.

I can't believe there are people who would pay to see this freak.

No.    

The idiocy in here astonishes me. Do you think a huge company like AEG and the O2 arena and who knows who else involved would book 50 dates at one popular venue for a guy who can't put on a show? You guys know nothing about how this works. It'd be awfully hard for a sick, cancer-ridden guy to get insured for these shows. He's not sick, he doesn't have cancer, the posponment (wow... 5 days) has nothing to do with his health, and these shows will go on as planned.

Crikes, like him or don't like him, think he's guilty or innocent, but at least use some common sense here.

LOL    

That freak is still the same F*up he's been for the last 25 years. That the only thing he's been consistant at (except molesting children). He has broken every contract he's signed for 25 years, screwed people out of money (including his family), screwed banks and lending institutions over repayment of debts. He's ruined countless children's lives.

He is a complete and total F*up. Always has been, always will be.
