AEG come up with a cunning plan

There's a number of stories swirling about at the moment that the death of Michael Jackson is possibly going to pull AEG down with it - the weekend papers reported that the company had been unable to insure the entire run of O2 gigs as the insurers didn't believe Jacko would manage them all; AEG could be millions in the hole by the time it refunds all the ticket holders.

Its plan B? To try and tell punters to forgo their refunds and see the tickets as 'collector's items' instead:

Company president Randy Phillips said of Jackson: "The world lost a kind soul who just happened to be the greatest entertainer the world has ever known.

"Since he loved his fans in life, it is incumbent upon us to treat them with the same reverence and respect after his death."

The company will not be printing more of the tickets and it anticipates the originals will become collectors' items."

You know... collectors' items. Probably should hold on to them, then, right? We'll keep your... sorry, curate your money, you keep the ticket. Who wouldn't swap £75 for a collector's item, right?

Does anyone know how many of these tickets have actually been sent out? I'm not much of an expert when it comes to collectors' items (I just buy whichever plate the back page of the News of the World magazine tells me to) - Are we talking mis-printed 50p coins with the Queen's neck tattoo visible, or is it more 'Limited Edition Walkers Salt and Lineker Flavour Crisps'?

Also, does anyone want to buy a box of Limited Edition Salt and Lineker Flavour Crisps? I need to use the garage now.

Isn't it great that a few months ago they were throwing numbers about saying how well the tickets had sold (was it a million tickets?) but now that they don't want to give the money back they are suggesting that it was so few that you might want to hold on to that collectable piece of card. I'll give them less than a week before they start blaming Jackson.

They've got a hologram of MJ dancing printed on them. Probably better dancing then you'd have got at the gig.
