Access will be at the press conference on Thursday and will have all the details!
The music icon's last live performance came at the 2006 World Music Awards.
Jackson isn't the only superstar set to grace the O2 stage. Britney Spears will play eight nights at the venue this summer as part of her "The Circus Starring Britney Spears" tour and Prince played a 21-concert run at the venue in 2007.
