Pop superstar Michael Jackson is pulling all stops to make his comeback concerts a success as the singer has spend one million pounds on Swarovski crystals for the show.

The Thriller hitmaker's costume and the set will be studded with 300,000 Swarovski crystals for his return to the stage after a hiatus of over a decade for his much-hyped 'This Is It' show in O2 arena here.

Jackson will have over 1 million pound worth of the gems in 53 shapes, 40 sizes and 27 colours, added onto his costumes and the stage to dazzle fans, Sun online reported.

"As the King of Pop it is only natural for him to be crowned in crystal," Nadja Swarovski, Vice President of Swarovski Crystal Business said confirming the firm's partnership with the show.

Meanwhile, Jackson's fans have another chance to see the singer as extra tickets have been made available.

"Since we originally put tickets on sale prior to designing the stage show, we were quite conservative with the arena seating in order to accommodate the size of this technologically advanced production.

Now that Michael and Kenny are very advanced in the creative process we are able to offer more tickets to the general public," said Randy Phillips, President of AEG Live, the organisers of the 50-date concert shows.
