Consensus That, Motherfucker

Marco Gandolfi reports that:

Michael Jackson is going to do a residency at London’s O2 Arena next year.

Michael Jackson thinks a lengthy run can ease his money problems:

The general consensus is that Michael has the fan base to attract enough people from all over the world to make this a huge success.

Booking the O2 up for more than a couple of nights might seem a big gamble on his and his promoters’ part, but just think of the history. People will flock to witness Michael cover his back catalogue.

Whitney Houston is rumored to be the other artist taking up a “big residency” next year.

Michael and Whitney, sweet. Whitney, a residency? Think of the history. I know the topic of Michael has been over-written. But godamnit, Off the Wall is a solid album. It was 1979, Michael met Quincy Jones on the set of the Wiz. Magic was made. “Rock with You” is not only a good song, it’s a good rollerskating song. Fuck. Then Michael had to fuck everything up with his diseased mind. Fuck you, Michael, I rollerskated to that song and loved it so much. I ate Cocoa Pebbles to that song. How am I supposed to listen to it now? Consensus that, motherfucker. Back catalogue? What about the back catalogue of those kids Michael diddled? Fuck that sick fucker.

Prince played a month of shows in London this year who they're obviously copying. But he's been actually working most of the past 25 years and always could perform 3-4(or more) hour long shows. And has enough material.
I'm not sure if Michael or Whitney could do a two hour show in their prime. In 2007 it would be a medical miracle if either lasted 30 minutes on stage.

Cocao Pebbles is a tasty tasty treat.

Yeah, and Prince is like a real musician. He could just play his guitar for an hour each night and it would be amazing.

I don't see Michael or Whitney being able to have near as good a month long show as Prince. Not even close.

@5: Prince actually set up camp in Vegas for quite a while before he did the month in London. That model seems to be working for these people with huge fanbases.

But yeah, Prince is an incredible musician with lots of stamina and a catalog that could be used to produce a week of great shows without repeating a song.

I like a lot of Michael's music, but it doesn't stand alone. It's hard to see him doing the sort of pyrotechnic state performance that he's famous for night after night without totally falling apart.

We'll see.
