Michael Jackson Planning Australian Tour Before His Death

28 June 2009

Michael Jackson was planning to tour Australia after his London O2 Arena residency.

Randy Phillips, the CEO of AEG Live, an American company who were responsible for his world tour told The LA Times that Australia was part of Michael Jackson's international tour plans.

After his 50 concert run at O2 Arena, Jackson would have headed to Australia, Europe, India, China and Japan before then heading to his homeland of America.

"We felt London was the right place to start this comeback," Phillips said.

"Do I think the international marketplace is a little less judgmental than America can be? Yes. There was a calculated reason we did that.

"We figured we start over there and work our way back into America."

It has been reported that while AEG claimed they were very confident about Jackson's health leading up to his concerts, they also took out a very hefty life insurance policy on him to protect their assets should something happen to his health that prevented the costly performances going ahead.
