Michael Jackson and iTunes tie In

So you were some how the unlucky sod who couldn't get tickets to one of MJ's 50 gigs at the O2 this summer. Well fear not, Ticketmaster and iTunes have done a great tie in with each other.

Simply by a MJ album via iTunes in the next few days and you will get a code which you can redeem on Ticketmaster's website to then be able to buy 2 tickets for his tour.

Basically Apple bought 2000 tickets for which you can buy a maximum of 2 each and then flog them to people who buy their product first. Genius. Love the tie in. Afraid it didn't work on me, as much as I loved his music, I can't think of anything other than the image of him performing his greatest hits on gig number 37 with an oxygen mask attached.
