Michael Jackson ticket site crashes at pre-sale



Tbdmichaeljackson031209 In case you were wondering if anyone was interested in attending Michael Jackson's farewell concerts at London's O2 Arena, rest assured there are plenty -- enough to crash the Ticketmaster site selling the seats, in fact.

NME says crashed Wednesday during a presale of tickets, displaying error messages when stalwart fans tried to enter ticket codes to gobble up seats to one of the shows.

Ticketmaster apologized for the glitches, and promoters said at least 15 more shows have been added into September, the AP reports, with ticket prices running around $70 to $150. Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, which we don't have to remind you is the 13th. There's a message there, we think.
