Michael Jackson: Back!

Michael Jackson, or at least someone purporting to be Michael Jackson, just attempted to give a press conference in London to announce a tour, but he was unable to make himself heard over the prerecorded applause. So, he made some bizarre gestures and went back to his oxygen tent. But, thanks to a Billboard interview with AEG president Tim Leiweke, who'll be promoting the hilarious tour, we know this much: Jackson, or a Jackson-like person, will play between 20 and 25 concerts at London's O2 Arena beginning on July 9, the exact number of shows presumably depending on demand for tickets and how much of Jackson's face falls off during performances. According to Leiweke, the King of Pop is "very sane, the man is very focused." But why not judge for yourself? Video of the freaky press conference is after the jump.
