The 50 dates start on July 13th and go on through September 2009 and resume in January 2010 to finally wrap up in March next year.
Jackson has confirmed that this tour will be his last set of performances in the UK, and that he plans to go all out with the shows. The shows will be choreographed by Jackson himself in collaboration with director Kenny Ortega.
In May this year, dancers from across the world came to audition for Jackson, who narrowed down the selection himself from the thousands that came in to the dozen that will accompany him on stage.
The show will have 22 different sets, and include aerial dancing a la Cirque du Soleil.
