It just seemed doomed from the start. A tribute to Michael Jackson that was shifted from Vienna earlier this year to London next year has now been cancelled for good.
The concert, slated to take place 2010, was scrapped after the event’s organizer declared bankruptcy, according to Reuters.
The salute was troubled early on. As you may recall, the London event, which was to take place this past fall, turned ugly quickly as acts like Mary J. Blige and Chris Brown distanced themselves from the concert as soon as it was announced. The show was then pushed back allegedly to give organizers time to book more talent.
Said organizer, World Awards Media GmbH closed on Nov. 30.
