Michael Jackson help usher in the age of video, and his life — for better and worse — was beamed into homes for decades. In 1984, Jackson was burned while singing for a Pepsi-Cola commercial in Los Angeles, when the special effects smoke bomb misfired.
Several of Michael Jackson’s comeback concerts in London have been postponed until next year because producers can’t be ready in time for the July debut, according to a "Dear Customer" e-mail sent to ticket holders Wednesday. The delay comes days after the concert promoter said Jackson was in good health, contrary to media reports he was diagnosed with skin cancer. Jackson’s “This Is It” shows were to begin July 8 at London’s 20,000-capacity O2 Arena.
Contrary to a report in a British newspaper, Michael Jackson does not have skin cancer, says Randy Phillips, president and CEO of AEG Live, the promoter of the King of Pop’s upcoming concerts at London’s 02 Arena.
