It looks like the Michael Jackson concerts at the O2 are becoming the car-crash most of us predicted they’d be. However, it’s happening before they’ve even started: the first four shows have been delayed because, the promoters say, he needs more rehearsal time. People are unhappy. I was going to have to sell or exchange mine – it’s the seventh show, I think – because I’m now visiting Canada at that time, but maybe it’ll be moved for me if he postpones a few more.
Also, Depeche Mode have cancelled concerts right up to May 27th due to Dave Gahan’s illness. We’re scheduled to see them in London on May 30th. Hmmm.
