The Association Of Secondary Ticket Agents (ASTA) has issued a warning about bogus tickets to see Michael Jackson at the London O2 Arena this summer going on sale.

Jackson is making an announcement at the O2 Arena complex later today (March 5), and is expected to announce details of a summer residency at the venue.

However, some websites have already been offering tickets to the shows, despite none being announced yet, prompting the ASTA to issue a warning to punters.

"We are warning people not to buy tickets that are not yet on sale because it is unlikely that they will receive those tickets," ASTA chief Graham Burns told BBC 6music.

He added: "It's impossible when the dates haven't been announced to be selling tickets for something when there are no announced dates."

NME.COM will be bringing you coverage of Jackson's announcement as it happens – stay tuned to the website to find out details of dates, ticket information, and what Jackson has to say.
