Tokyo fans face Jackson

Fans pay $3,500 for six-hour bash

While rumors of a Jackson 5 reunion tour continue to simmer, some Michael Jackson fans apparently couldn’t wait for his next official appearance.

Some 400 people opened their wallets to hobnob with Jackson at a fan event in Tokyo. Six-hour bash pointedly did not promise a Jacko performance, but featured a buffet dinner, a bevy of Jackson impersonators and a one minute face-to-face with the onetime King of Pop.

The price: a cool $3,500 apiece.
