Jacko 'taking boat to O2 arena'
Published: Wednesday 25th of March 2009
King of Pop Michael Jackson is rumoured to be considering a rather unusual choice of transport for his residency at the O2 Arena.
The singer - who will be playing 50 dates at the venue - is reported to be travelling there by boat, suggests the Daily Mirror.
It is claimed that the singer is sick of helicopters and being stuck in the capital's traffic, so will take to its waterways instead.
"He loves the idea of turning up by boat - he thinks it's much more glamorous and very James Bond," a source tells the paper.
The 50-year-old's concerts will begin in June and are said to be his last on British soil.
People heading to London can also take to its waterways with the London Pass.
It enables them to embark on Jason's Canal Boat for free, saving £8.50 per adult and £7.50 per child.
