Michael Jackson AEG Live Concerts
AEG Live is the concert promoter putting on the 50 ‘This is It’ concerts Michael Jackson was to perform at the O2 Arena in London.
Concerts were to start on July 13, 2009, and last through March 6, 2010.
Ticket holders have between July 1 and August 14, 2009, to request a refund. Or, purchasers can request to receive their tickets as souvenirs.
There are 8 different versions of O2 concert tickets available for collectors to find.
The tickets are printed using what is known as a Lenticular printing 3D process that shows moving images.
“The world lost a kind soul who just happened to be the greatest entertainer the world has ever known.” said Randy Phillips, President & CEO, AEG Live.
AEG is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Anschutz Company, which also owns the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
The Staples Center is where the public funeral and memorial service for Michael Jackson took place on July 7, 2009. Tickets for the service were free, although extremely difficult to get at almost 2 million ticket requests were made.
AEG did not pay the City of Los Angeles for security around the Staples Center service. Los Angeles also has not made a formal request from AEG.
