AEG Live Exec: ‘Celine Dion’s Bigger Than Michael Jackson’

A top executive with AEG Live insists Celine Dion is a “bigger” artist than Michael Jackson.

John Meglin, testifying Wednesday at the wrongful death trial of AEG Live, also downplayed how many tickets Jackson could have sold if he had not died while preparing for his comeback concerts.

AEG Live lawyers are challenging an entertainment expert hired by Jackson lawyers who estimated the King of Pop would have earned $1.5 billion touring the world before his 66th birthday had he not died from an overdose of a surgical anesthetic at age 50.

Michael Jackson’s mother and three children contend the company is liable for damages because it hired, retained or supervised the doctor convicted of involuntary manslaughter in his death.

If jurors agree, they could then use estimates of Jackson’s lost earnings as a guide to determine how much AEG Live — the promoter and producer of his “This Is It” tour — must pay the Jacksons in damages.

AEG Live lawyers argue that Jackson — not its executives — chose and controlled Dr. Conrad Murray, the doctor who signed a $150,000 a month contract with the company to serve as Jackson’s doctor for the tour. AEG Live executives never signed the contract, which Murray returned to them just hours before Jackson’s death.

A nurse anesthetist will testify Thursday about administering anesthesia to Jackson during a medical procedure. He will be the first of what AEG Live lead lawyer Marvin Putnam said would be a parade of “many, many” medical professionals who treated Jackson. The company will try to prove that Jackson was a secretive drug addict, which prevented promoters from knowing about the dangers he faced under Murray’s care.

Meglin, who has been a concert promoter since the 1970s, is the CEO of Concerts West, the division of AEG Live that was in charge of Michael Jackson’s tour. He was the first witness called as the company began presenting its defense in the 13th week of the trial.

Much of his testimony was focused on attacking the analysis of certified public accountant Arthur Erk, who testified last week that he was “reasonably certain” that Jackson would have performed 260 shows around the world as part of his “This Is It” tour. He would have earned $890 million over the three years of concerts in Europe, Asia, South America, North America and Australia, Erk said.

Jackson would have earned at least $1.5 billion from touring, endorsements and sponsorships had he lived to age 66, Erk said.

Erk’s analysis suggested Jackson would stage many of his shows in large stadiums, with more than 90,000 fans buying tickets to many of the concerts. But Meglin testified that his experience told him that no stadiums would seat that many people for Jackson’s kind of show. The Erk estimates were inflated by about 30%, Meglin testified.

The Rose Bowl would only seat 60,000, Meglin said. Although Billboard Magazine reported that U2 performed for 97,000 people in the Pasadena, California, venue in 2009, Meglin said he was “trusting my gut” that the numbers were inflated. “I know how those numbers can be manipulated,” he said.

Jackson lead lawyer Brian Panish noted that 98,000 people were in the Rose Bowl seats when Michael Jackson performed the halftime show for Super Bowl 27 in 1993.

Meglin also contested Erk’s suggestion that Jackson would have taken his tour to India for at least three shows.

“Nobody goes to India,” he said. He later acknowledged that Jackson performed there during his HIStory tour.

“It’s not a very big market,” Meglin said of India, which is home to about 1.25 billion people.

Meglin also disagreed with what one of his superiors, AEG Live CEO Randy Phillips, wrote in an e-mail that there was enough demand in England alone to sell out more that 200 Jackson shows. “He believed that,” Meglin testified. “I don’t believe that.”

Fans bought all 750,000 tickets put on sale for 31 shows in March 2009 in just two hours, Phillips said. Enough buyers were already registered to sell out another 100 shows, Phillips wrote.

Meglin also disagreed with Phillips’ opinion that Michael Jackson was the biggest entertainment artist ever.

“I do myself personally believe that that is not true,” Meglin testified Wednesday. “In my opinion Celine Dion is right up there with Michael Jackson and, to me, she is bigger.”

Michael Jackson trial: AEG witness talks concert venue capacity

During the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial on Tuesday, AEG Live questioned the star's ability to pull in concertgoers. The defense called John Meglen, co-CEO of Concerts West, to the stand.

According to Meglen, the king of pop could draw a crowd, but nothing like projected by Katherine Jackson's legal team. Meglen attacked figures presented last week by CPA Arthur Erk. The Jackson witness had testified that the singer potentially could have made between $1.1 billion and $1.5 billion.

Erk's numbers were based on filling stadiums to capacity. Meglen testified that concerts in stadiums provide fewer seats because of space needed for the stage and lights, among other factors. It makes a difference in the bottom line, he explained.

The plaintiffs said Jackson fans could fill these stadiums with an average capacity of 72,000. Meglen says the actual number for a concert event would be about 49,000, a 30-percent difference.

The plaintiffs' estimate for the Rose Bowl was about 92,000. Meglen testified that capacity for AEG concerts there was about 59,000, again a 30-percent difference.

The numbers are important in this case if the jury should have to decide on economic damages to be awarded to Katherine Jackson and Michael Jackson's three children.

Jackson attorney Brian Panish rebutted the figures. He said concerts had been staged at the Rose Bowl with a capacity crowd of 97,000 people based on a report from Billboard Magazine.

Meglen said he didn't believe the figures. Billboard's numbers are often inflated, he testified.

The Jackson attorneys claimed a Jackson theme show in Las Vegas would have earned $269 million. Meglen estimated $60 million, and only if it ran for 10 years.

The central question of the lawsuit was also raised. The plaintiffs allege that AEG hired Jackson's doctor, Conrad Murray, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in Jackson's death.

Under cross examination by Panish, Meglen testified that it is not uncommon for producers to hire doctors for artists and that AEG had done it for the Rolling Stones and Celine Dion. But Meglen went on to explain that doctors are not hired without the approval of the artist.

Michael Jackson Wrongful Death Trial: Blogger Banned for Shooting Unauthorized Photo

A blogger covering Michael Jackson's wrongful-death trial in Los Angeles has been banned after he allegedly shot an unauthorized photo while at the courthouse Wednesday.

Per Yahoo! News, William Wagener was riding a courthouse escalator when he supposedly used his phone to snap a photo that included several of the jurors in the trial. His phone was reportedly confiscated following the incident.

Wagener, who also covered Jackson's 2005 child-abuse trail, claimed he had accidentally shot the photo, and he has been ordered to appear in court Thursday to learn if the ban is permanent.

The incident comes amid heightened security measures surrounding the trial, and the presiding judge had repeatedly warned attendees about shooting photos during the proceedings.

According to the BBC, Wagener hopes to make a documentary about the trail and has jump-started a campaign to try to raise $10 million to fund it.

On Monday, Michael's mother, Katherine Jackson, resumed her testimony in court and claimed, among other things, that she was unaware that her son had a been abusing prescription medication.

"I knew he was taking [pain pills], but I didn't know he was abusing them," she said, adding that at one point she confronted Michael about it but that he subsequently denied he had an addiction problem.

She also revealed that she participated in an alleged intervention at Neverland Ranch in 2002, but that her son was upset "because when we got there, there was nothing wrong with him." Katherine later said she felt embarrassed to have been there during the intervention.

Katherine is suing AEG Live on behalf of her son's estate, accusing the concert promoter of negligence by hiring Dr. Conrad Murray to oversee her son's health and ultimately being complicit in the King of Pop's death from a propofol overdose

Katherine Jackson knew about son's drug issues, doctor says -exclusive

There's a major development in the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial regarding the singer's use of drugs. Newly revealed testimony appears to contradict the recent testimony of Jackson's mother, who claimed to have no knowledge of her son's past addiction.

Jurors heard the most explicit details yet of Jackson's treatment for addiction. It was 2002, seven years before Jackson's death from the anesthetic propofol. Jackson's youngest son had just been born. Dr. Alimorad Farschian said Jackson wanted off of the painkiller demerol.

"Blanket was just born and that was why he wanted to, what he phrased, 'a monkey on his back,' he wanted to just not deal with it anymore," Farschian said in a video deposition.

In the video, Farschian states Jackson's family was pressuring the artist. The doctor's statement conflicts with the testimony of Katherine Jackson, who said under oath that she had no personal knowledge that her son struggled with dependency. The doctor said he talked to her directly about the singer's detox treatment.

"I think she wanted to know all about it, what was going on," said Farschian.

Farschian described implanting Michael Jackson with a type of demoral antidote. Naltrexone, also known as narcane, is a tiny tube inserted under the skin to block the euphoric effect of opiates. The doctor said he implanted Jackson five times over nine months and that he personally witnessed Mrs. Jackson examining her son's incision.

"I remember that was in Neverland. Michael did show the implant to his mother. Just his mother was there. She was very happy," said Farschian.

Katherine Jackson is suing AEG Live, alleging that the tour promoters hired and failed to supervise Conrad Murray, the physician linked to the singer's propofol overdose. Her attorneys assert that Jackson's health was deteriorating from anxiety and sleep deprivation in the two months before his death.

Jurors heard from Farschian that Jackson suffered from insomnia years earlier. The doctor's theory is that it was linked to cosmetic surgery: a key part of Jacksons nose was missing.

"It is possible that you produce what they call empty nose syndrome and producing insomnia," said Farschian.

About the plaintiffs claim that Jackson was emaciated, the autopsy recorded he was 136 pounds when he died. Farschian testified that Jackson weighed 128 when he treated him.

CELINE DION
BIGGER THAN MICHAEL
So Claims AEG


[ Изображение ]

It's Billie Jean vs. Titanic, and AEG claims the ship wins hands down. Translation -- AEG is trying to convince the Michael Jackson jury that Celine Dion is bigger than MJ.

AEG exec John Meglin is on the stand in the wrongful death case, scoffing at the Jackson family's claim that Michael would have earned $1.5 billion had he lived.

Meglin told the jury it's his opinion Celine is a bigger star and therefore more bankable than MJ ever would have been. Yet according to reports, Celine is worth a measly $400 mil.

Fun facts: Jackson ranks #3 in most albums sold worldwide -- more than a billion (behind the Beatles and Elvis) . Celine ranks #9 at 200 million albums.

As for Grammys, MJ also has her beat with 13 Grammys to her 5.

So we gotta ask ...

Bigger

CD
MJ

Я, конечно, очень люблю Селин как певицу, но утверждать, что она стоит дороже Майкла - полный бред icon_oops

Spectator banned from Jackson trial over photo
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A spectator attending the civil trial over Michael Jackson's death was banned Wednesday by a judge after he snapped a photo in a courthouse hallway that included jurors hearing the case.Earlier on Wednesday, jurors watched the videotaped testimony of a physician who said he treated the late singer to help him stop taking
Demerol.Bailiffs confiscated William Wagener's cellphone and ordered him to return on Thursday to find out whether the ban will remain in place or
other disciplinary actions will be taken.Wagener said he inadvertently snapped the photo on his smartphone while riding
an escalator. He cooperated with bailiffs to retrieve the photo and said
he did not send it to anyone.The photo is the latest incident that has raised concerns about the security around jurors hearing the
negligence case filed by Jackson's mother against AEG Live LLC. Two alternate jurors were approached by a woman last month who told them not to award any money to the Jackson family.In recent days, tiny windows on the courtroom door were blocked after jurors reported seeing someone press a camera to the window and snap a
photo during the proceedings. Videotaping and photography in the
courthouse are banned without a court order, and a judge blocked a
request by news outlets to broadcast the trial.Bailiffs or a court clerk give daily reminders of the courtroom's rules, which include a ban on any transmissions from inside the trial or
loud outbursts during the testimony.Wagener, 67, said he posts updates on the trial on Facebook and YouTube and has sold rights to videos he made during Jackson's 2005 criminal trial. He said if he's banned from the trial, it will hurt his ability to
cover the case. He said being in the courtroom is the only way to hear
the inflection of lawyers and witnesses and get a full sense of the
proceedings.Earlier, in a videotaped testimony, one of Jackson's former physicians described how in 2002 he placed an implant in Jackson's
abdomen to block the effects of opioid medications such as Demerol.Dr. Alimorad Farschcian said Jackson told him that he wanted to stop taking Demerol for the sake of his children. The Miami-based physician
became close to the entertainer after treating him for a sprained ankle,
spending time at Neverland Ranch and meeting Jackson's mother on
Christmas Day in 2002.Farschcian said the implant kept the singer off of Demerol for at least nine months and Jackson's mother Katherine seemed pleased when he
described it to her and her son showed her the device.Katherine Jackson testified on Monday that she never saw the device and could never prove her son abused prescription medications.The Jackson family matriarch is suing AEG Live, claiming it negligently hired another doctor, Conrad Murray, who was convicted of
administering Jackson a fatal dose of anesthetic in 2009. No trace of
Demerol was found in Jackson's system when he died.AEG Live denies it hired Murray, and its attorneys have said Jackson hid his addiction struggles, and the company bears no responsibility for
his death.Superior Court Judge Yvette Palazuelos said she would consult with another judge about how to handle

Michael Jackson's drug use explored in trial

A nurse who administered propofol to Michael Jackson more than a dozen times said the pop star did not appear to be a drug-seeker.

David Fournier was called as a witness Thursday by AEG Live in an effort to convince jurors that Jackson was so deceptive and secretive about his drug use that its executives had no way of knowing his health was in danger as he prepared for his comeback concerts.

An economist hired by the concert promoter's lawyers will testify Friday in an effort to downplay how much money Jackson might have earned had he not died at age 50 -- an important issue if the jury decides AEG Live is liable in his death.

Michael Jackson's mother and three children contend the company negligently hired, retained or supervised the doctor convicted of involuntary manslaughter in his death -- which the coroner ruled was caused by an overdose of the surgical anesthetic propofol.

AEG Live argues that Jackson chose and controlled Dr. Conrad Murray, who told investigators he gave Jackson nightly infusions of propofol to treat his insomnia.

Fournier, a certified nurse anesthetist, testified about an incident on June 3, 2003 in which Jackson stopped breathing while under sedation for a procedure with Beverly Hills dermatologist Dr. Arnold Klein. After Jackson suffered a "somewhat bizarre reaction" during the sedation, Klein told Fournier it might be because the singer had an "opioid antagonist" implant. It was intended to help treat a dependence on Demerol, he said.

"You expect your clients and doctors be honest with you and I felt ambushed and was upset," Fournier testified. The nurse said it made him angry at both Klein and Jackson.

AEG Live lawyers hope jurors see the incident as evidence that Jackson was dishonest about his drug use, which would support their contention that their executives had no way of knowing about the dangerous treatments he was getting from Murray.

Fournier also testified that Jackson failed to follow his instructions in two instances after being sedated for procedures. Jackson went to a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant for a bucket of chicken instead of going home and eating crackers, he testified. Another time he went to a rehearsal for a Grammy show performance and sprained his ankle, he said.

Every instance where Jackson was given propofol was medically justified, Fournier said. The 14 times he administered it between 2000 and 2003 involved plastic surgeries, dermatological procedures and oral surgeries, he said.

He first sedated Jackson in 1993 when he was being treated for serious scalp burns suffered while filming a Pepsi commercial several years earlier, he said.

Some of the 25 times he was hired to assist with Jackson's procedures no drugs were given, he said. He would just hold his hand and assure him it would be all right.

Jackson never asked for specific drugs and never quarreled with him, he said. All of the doctors who treated him were respected physicians, he said.

Fournier's friendly relationship with Jackson ended in November 2003 when he canceled a procedure because Jackson was "a little goofy, a little slow to respond." Fournier said he refused to sedate

Jackson because he suspected he was lying to him about his use of drugs.

"Despite 10 years of good quality care and taking good care of him for a long period of time, he never called me," he said.

AEG Live's lead lawyer has said he would call as witnesses "many, many, doctors" who have treated Jackson to make their case that he was a secretive drug addict.

The trial in a Los Angeles court concludes its 13th week Friday and is expected to last into September.
