In a bid to make everything perfect, has postponed his comeback tour at London's O2, promoters AEG Live announced on Wednesday, May 20. If previously the first date was set on July 8, it has been changed to July 13. The rest of the dates in the month, 10, 12 and 14, are pushed back to as far as next year on March 1, 3, 6 respectively.
There was a rumor that the postponement was prompted by the poor health of Michael but promoter Randy Phillips insisted that "there was nothing nefarious", citing that it was actually the decision put by Michael and his creative director, Kenny Ortega. "Kenny and Michael are, at the same time, both creative pioneers and perfectionists," Phillips said.
