Yesterday, Michael Jackson announced to the world (well, London anyway) that he has a few more concerts left in him there. Then he’s out. Finito. Done. Much to the dismay of fervent Jackson fans, Michael insisted to the Londoners that after his round of performances in July, he will fade to the background.
All of which got me thinking: What one living musician or group or act would you have to go see on the “farewell” tour? For me, it’s a three-way tie between Outkast, Jigga and Thriller; for obvious reasons of course, but mainly because my song catalog (and iTunes) count are highest on those artists. Call me a front runner. At gunpoint, I’d have to go with the ‘Kast. Being an Atlanta native and lifelong resident, it couldn’t be any other way.
What artist(s) would you drop the dough on?
