Jackson Gig Tickets Double In Price

Tickets for MICHAEL JACKSON's abandoned THIS IS IT farewell concerts are on sale on auction websites - for more than double their face value.
Promoters AEG Live promised concert-goers a full refund for the shows after the Thriller star died last month (Jun09), but offered to send out tickets instead - knowing their value would soar as collectors' items.
And within days, some fans have put theirs up for sale on eBay in a bid to cash in on the hysteria surrounding Jackson's death.
A ticket for one of the 50 shows at London's O2 Arena, which were due to start later this month (Jul09), was originally priced at $105 (£70) - and some are now up for sale online as souvenirs for as much as $255 (£170).
On Monday (06Jul09), eBay bosses announced a ban on unscrupulous traders selling passes to Jackson's memorial service for $7,500 (£5,000).
