King of Pop Michael Jackson is Reportedly Planning to Enter London Concerts Riding

King of Pop Michael Jackson is reportedly planning to enter London concerts riding.

The 50-year-old also wants a panther, snakes, tropical birds and three monkeys for a set that will have a jungle, circus and weather theme.

“He hopes to make it the most spectacular gig ever. For the jungle section, he wants to ride out on an African elephant with panthers led on gold chains. Parrots and other birds will fly behind him. If it goes to plan it will look incredible,” the Mirror quoted an insider, as saying.

According to sources, the Thriller hitmaker also hopes to rope in 100 Masai warriors for the 50 gigs at the 02 Arena starting in July. Jackson’s managers don’t think that getting animals is a good idea and fear the costs and insurance premiums.

There are also animal welfare laws banning the use of some non-domestic creatures in shows. However, the source said that the singer ’desperate to find a way around it.’

“He hopes to make it the most spectacular gig ever. For the jungle section, he wants to ride out on an African elephant with panthers led on gold chains."

Dear Michael, African elephants will probably stomp you to death or tear you limb from limb. Better to go with the trainable Asian elephants.

Why would anyone pay money to see this nose-less pedophile freak?

That's hardly spectacular. If he wants spectacular he needs to ride in on a purple unicorn, while golden griffons fly behind and sylves, gnomes, dryads and sprites are led in on gold chains.

“King of Pop Michael Jackson is reportedly planning to enter London concerts riding..” Roman Polanski.

Polanski prefers little girls but a little pseudo-boy will do.

Maybe one of the panthers will eat him! I’d buy a ticket to see that!

Huh? Sounds like he’s planning to do some sort of “Kipling Comes Alive!” show.

What a nut. Mike? Two words, there, buddy: “Siegfried & Roy.”

Interesting compilation of captive animal escapes/attacks:

Have his handlers never seen “Young Frankenstein” or “King Kong”? The flashbulbs and crowd noise will drive the beast berserk. Plus, the elephants might also be disturbed.

“If it goes according to plan, it will look incredible.”

And if not, it will be hard for Jackson to save face...

Michael... Michael... I know in your stunted child-like mind, you don't grasped subjects like finance and economics, but you can no longer afford to buy everything you can imagine.

Such a sad case. Off the Wall and Thriller were really great albums.
