Chris Martin Desperate For Michael Jackson Tickets!

25 March 2009

COLDPLAY frontman CHRIS MARTIN is desperate to score a ticket to one of MICHAEL JACKSON's comeback concerts - after missing out when the shows went on sale earlier this month (Mar09).

The rocker is a huge fan of the King Of Pop and was thrilled when Jackson announced his upcoming This Is It run at London's O2 arena.

But he was devastated after the Thriller legend's 50-date residency sold out within hours of going on general sale, leaving Martin without a ticket to much-hyped shows.

He says, "I was looking at it on the Internet and thought, 'I'd better buy some for myself' and I couldn't. They were totally sold out.

"To sell out like that is a testament to talent. It is just amazing to sell out 50 shows in one city in a big arena. It's the biggest comeback since Lazarus. It's good news - but not for me."

Jackson's gigs kick off on 8 July (09) and will run into February 2010.
