Ticket holders of Michael Jackson's supposed-to-be farewell concert "This Is It" in the O2 Arena are now being offered an option to refund the canceled show by its promoter AEG Live. However, only tickets bought to a licensed distributor will be refunded. It was determined that AEG collected a total of $85 million for about 1 million tickets that were sold for the 50 concert performances scheduled. People can start the process to get their full refund starting July 1 by visiting MichaelJacksonLive.com to start the process. However, there will be a "service charge" that will taken away from the amount they paid and fans who wish to keep the ticket itself as souvenirs will not be able to get full refund.
If I were a fan of MJ who’s lucky enough to have tickets, I wouldn't exchange it for anything because time will come these tickets will be high-valued collector's items. The ticket itself was designed by Michael Jackson himself and was specifically printed using "lenticular process" that made those tickets have a "3D look". All tickets can be refunded until August 14. For more info about the Michael Jackson Ticket refund news, you can read it in Variety.
