Looks like King of Pop Michael Jackson still isn't have any trouble staying on top when it comes to ticket sales, or general word-of-mouth buzz. The publicity isn't all good, but when you hold a spot in history the way MJ does, the type of publicity doesn't seem to matter all that much. This time he's being called out by PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) in protest of his plans to ride an elephant onto the stage in his upcoming tour at London's O2 arena, as well as plans to feature a variety of other exotic animals in his show. Will Michael's plans change, or will he find a way to appease the animal rights' groups? We'd love to hear your thoughts - should Michael abandon the idea of using animals in his concert tour, or do you think that he can find a way to feature the animals without harming them?
(And yes, for those who don't have them yet, we have Michael Jackson tickets for sale!)

If you've been watching the top-selling events across the country (well, across the globe, really) for a while, you've seen the theater show Wicked at the top for a good long time now. So what is it about the show that is keeping audiences so enthralled? Much as I hate to just throw out a Wikipedia article, there are simply too many productions of the show to focus on just one, so you can read the Wikipedia article here for a full rundown of the show's history and information about each specific production, from Broadway to the traveling shows.
Think you can't make it to such a big show? Here's a tiny sample of what we have in the way of Wicked tickets. Notice that these shows are only one days' worth of Wicked - on the Coast to Coast Tickets website, you'll find a list of shows that stretches out through March of 2010! With so many productions out there, there's no excuse not to find out why it's stayed on top so long!
