A spokesman for Michael Jackson announced this evening that the artist has canceled his comeback and the thirty shows at Londons O2 Arena because he has died.
Michael, who was 50 years old and has been known to be a bit flighty about schedules in the past, has once more gone back on his word.
"Michael had great plans for the show but he will be forced to cancel", stated a friend.
Michael was rushed to the hospital in cardiac arrest. It has been reported that when the paramedics arrived to his home, Jackson had no pulse and they never got a pulse back.
"That's the thanks you get", stated Harold Foreman in charge of preparing the stage show. "We've worked like beggers for a month now and getting everything all set, and it was a lot of gizmos let me tell you, and what does Jackson do? He ups and dies. Did he think of us or his fans, no!"
At last report, all the people who worked for Jacko were running around trying to put a tribute show together so they can still make a lot of money out of Jackson.
"They have been making money off of Elvis for years, come to think of it", stated one close friend of Jackson's.
"You know, if we do things just right, we'll be able to live off him for many years. Just like in the past. The only thing that's missing is Jackson and we can do some really big movies of him in the background. This thing sounds GREAT! Here I was all worried and all."
"Does his family know he's dead?", asked one of the crew.
"Who knows? I got more important things to do. Tell John Garvin that I want that old stuff written by Colonel Tom Parker who drained Elvis, he was the expert on these things?"
