London: Hundreds of Michael Jackson fans lined up in the cold and rain outside London's O2 arena for tickets to his comeback concert. Some of them had been there since Wednesday to grab tickets that went on sale on Friday morning. Around 750,000 tickets were sold out in four hours. General tickets cost US $105 while the VIP tickets went at over thousand dollars. On the internet, one ticket even went for 35,000 dollars. Jackson has planned 50 concerts in London starting on July 8 and ending February 24. He says these would be his final concerts. CNN's Phil Black caught the fever on camera.
