Insurers Shy Away from Jackson Concerts

Michael Jackson announced this week plans for a grueling seven-month comeback tour. Does anyone think he’ll make it to the finale? Insurers aren’t betting on it: According to The Telegraph, “AEG Live, which organized the star's program starting in July, said the company is ‘still negotiating’ with insurers, but insisted it is willing to take on the risk of Jackson falling ill.” Jacko’s comeback was originally supposed to only last 10 days, and insurers are apparently reluctant to cover anything beyond that, given the King of Pop’s famous frailty.
