Jackson Offered London Shows
The brains behind the SPICE GIRLS reunion tour and PRINCE's recent London concert run are trying to lure MICHAEL JACKSON to the English capital for a string of shows.
Promoters AEG Live have offered the King of Pop a "standing offer with no expiration" to play at the O2 arena, where Prince performed a run of shows and Led Zeppelin reformed to pay tribute to music mogul Ahmet Ertegun last December (07).
The news comes as Jacko's 1982 album Thriller returns to the top of the U.S. charts - the Billboard's Top Pop Catalog Albums chart that is.
The album rocketed up the charts from 41 to one, thanks in part to ongoing stories about a musical based on the pop star's 14-minute Thriller video.
The album is 2008's top-selling catalogue album in America, according to Billboard.com.
