Michael Jackson + Tour = Comeback?

Recording a new album? Check. Planning a tour? Check. Finally willing to walk around in public without a mask? Check.

Clearly the rumors must be true; Michael Jackson is plotting a comeback.

While the internet was buzzing about a stint in Las Vegas, it turns out he’s just recording his album in Sin City. Instead, the UK Sun reports that Jackson is supposedly meeting with music big wigs in Los Angeles to discuss a 30-day tour.

Michael said he wasn’t doing a Vegas residency but was going on a world tour, taking in 30 cities next year,” one follower told the Sun. “He said he wanted to do it for his kids. He wants them to see what he does, and he wants to take them on the road.”

This will be Prince Michael, Prince Michael II and Paris’ first chance to see their dad on tour – Jackson hasn’t toured since 1996.

While in Los Angeles this week Jackson even left his mask at home and smiled and waved at the paparazzi while out shopping.

All in all, this could mean the King of Pop is ready to reclaim his throne after being cleared of sex abuse charges just a few years ago.
