Can't Get A Ticket? Watch Michael Jackson's O2 Set In Full

By Luke Lewis

We now know Michael Jackson is playing 37 nights at London's O2, starting in July - and his planned setlist has leaked. But let's be honest - he's unlikely to be performing at his former peak.

As we pointed out on the office blog, Jackson hasn't sung live, at least not a full set, since 1997.

To save yourself the disappointment, then, you can watch the entire set in YouTube form below. First impressions? 'Billie Jean' is squandered too early, and I'd head to the bar for 'Heal The World', 'You Are Not Alone' and 'Girlfriend'. But the rest of it? Cha'mone.

And, mercifully, no 'Earth Song'.

What do you make of the setlist? Any glaring omissions?

Billie Jean


Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'

Rock With You




The Way You Make Me Feel

Don't Stop Till You Get Enough

I Just Can't Stop Loving You

Human Nature

Smooth Criminal
