Jewellers will make the singer and stage sparkle

Michael Jackson will be draped in Swarovski gems when he performs at London’s O2 arena.

More than 300,000 of the gems are being used on the costumes and set for his series of concerts, which begin on July 13.

‘As the king of pop, it is only natural for him to be crowned in crystal,’ says a Swarovski spokesman.

Meanwhile, more tickets for Michael‘s concerts have gone on sale today.

Fans who have registered on his website will have priority.
