(Newser) – Michael Jackson isn't done yet. It looks like the King of Pop has signed on for a series of summer concerts in London, the BBC reports. Jackson has scheduled a press conference Thursday to announce the deal with the 02 arena. Beset by all sorts of financial and legal problems, Jackson hasn't performed since 2006—and that was a brief snippet at the World Music Awards. The 50-year-old hasn't toured since 1997.
