Michael Jackson’s mother tearfully described finding out about her son’s death Friday and said she expressed concerns about his comeback concert schedule to the promoters of the tour.
Katherine Jackson said she called the CEO of promoter AEG Live LLC to express her view that her son could have done 50 shows, but not if they were spaced closely together.
“He couldn’t do every other night like AEG wanted him to do at first,” Katherine Jackson said.
She said she called AEG Live CEO Randy Phillips and her son’s manager, Tohme Tohme, to express her concerns about the This Is It schedule.
