To no one's real surprise, Michael Jackson can still sell out a show. According to the AP, Tickets for the advanced screening of the music documentary Michael Jackson: This Is It sold out within a few hours in Los Angeles.
The advanced screening will take place on October 27th (one day before it opens nationwide) at LA's new Regal Cinemas Stadium 14- which is using the premier for it's grand opening. Thankfully, for us non-LA/more patient types, tickets are still available nationwide. But I have a strong feeling that will change in the near future, so book it on over to Ticketmaster or your local theater to get the hottest documentary tickets around.
For those of you living in a cave, This Is It is directed by Kenny Ortega and draws on hundreds of hours of footage of The Prince of Pop as he prepared for a series of concerts in London. Jackson died on June 25th.
