Boyzone star Ronan Keating is planning to avoid Michael Jackson's comeback concerts - insisting the pop superstar is a shadow of his former self.
Jackson is making a return to the stage in July (09) with his 50-date This Is It run at London's O2 Arena.
But despite a huge demand from the public to see the Thriller hitmaker in action, Keating is adamant he will not be attending any of the shows.
He says, "I don't want to go and be disappointed. I love Michael - but when I see him in the papers he is on crutches or in a wheelchair. I want to see him do all the moves. I don't want to see someone who used to be Michael Jackson."
