This is it: Led Zeppelin and Abba to replace Michael JacksonBy ANI
Saturday, July 4, 2009
LONDON - ‘Led Zeppelin’ have apparently been approached to alternate shows with Abba, and fill in for the 50-show run previously planned for Michael Jackson at London’s O2 arena. AEG Live, promoters for the late King of Pop’s slated comeback tour, were said to be trying hard to woo both the bands to reform.
“Only Michael Jackson could sell out 50 nights at such a big arena, but Led Zeppelin and Abba combined might just rival him. There is huge money on the table,” British tabloid The Sun quoted a source as saying.
Jackson was due to begin his ‘This Is It’ gigs on July 13.
His sudden death on June 25 has left the organisers facing a multi-million pound black hole, if they are unable fill the slots. (ANI)
