Michael Jackson: This Will Be the Final Curtain Call

The King of Pop still remains king, at least for the hundreds of screaming fans that flocked to the O2 Arena. Jackson announced these words, "These will be my final show performances London, this will be it, when I say this is it, it will really be it. This is the final curtain call." The

final performances will be at least a series of 10 concerts starting July 8. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 13 at 7AM. Jackson was on-stage for fewer than four minutes and he spoke less than 100 words. He spun in circles a few times, chuckled, repeated "I love you, I love you all" and threw an ending air punch.

Jackson being there was enough for the hundreds of loyal fans many wearing only one white glove reflecting Jackson's costumes. Fans ranged from the young to middle-aged adult males. Will this be the final curtain call for the King of Pop?It has been more than 10 years since The King of Pop launched a major tour. Jackson's media coverage has been widely about his financial, mental and physical conditions.
