Martin fails to get Jacko gig ticket

LONDON: Coldplay frontman Chris Martin is desperate to score a ticket to one of Michael Jackson’s comeback concerts after missing out when the shows went on sale earlier this month.

He says, “I was looking at it on the Internet and thought, ‘I’d better buy some for myself’ and I couldn’t. They were totally sold out. To sell out like that is a testament to talent. It is just amazing to sell out 50 shows in one city in a big arena. It’s the biggest comeback since Lazarus. It’s good news - but not for me.”
