Additional Jackson tickets made available

Additional tickets for Michael Jackson's upcoming London concert dates were made available Wednesday, the BBC said.

Hundreds of extra seats per show, which were held back as production logistics were coordinated, have been released, the British broadcaster said.

Fans who registered on the U.S. pop star's Web site have been entered into a lottery system by which they will be invited to buy the tickets.

About 750,000 ducets for the 50-show engagement, which is slated to begin next month, were quickly purchased when they first went on sale in March, the BBC said.
