Michael Jackson VIP tickets on eBay now for £10,000,000
I grew up in the 80s. That means moonwalking to all of Michael Jackson's songs in flourescent British flag t-shirts and red jackets (vinyl, with lots of pockets), usually after watching the latest episode of He-Man.
So last night was a rather sad evening.
Michael Jackson dead at the tender age of 50 means various things to various people. Crazy fans cluttering useless lottery tickets, upset groupies over the upcoming "50-date farewell" O2 arena performance, and touts pissed off with no longer being able to hawk tickets at £2,500 a pop.
But to others, the death of "King of Pop" means something entirely different.
Just last night, as soon as news broke, even the postponed opening performance on July 13 was bid up to £10,000,000 on eBaY:
Self proclaimed investors and entrepreneur wannabes are also snapping up Michael Jackson related goodies from domain names to memorabilia, collectables, and 'rare' music albums. Some may call this sick, but perhaps this is just an illustration of truly capitalism at its best.
RIP, Michael Jackson. You and your music will be missed.
