OPUS: While we wait....

According to this LA Times article, pre-order sales of Michael's Opus was around 20,000.

Between August and October, the pre-order price was $165. The cost now is $249 (Opus & Retail) or $225 (Ticketmaster).

Using the ole calculator ($165 * 20,000= $3.3 million). Obviously, this is a low estimate based on the original pre-order offer and not knowing exactly how many were actually purchased at each of the $165, $225 or $245 prices. It also doesn't take into account how many will be purchased in stores this holiday season.

But still, not too shabby for a 6 month project. Wonder what amount of those proceeds will actually benefit Michael's Estate?

Thank you Kracken Opus, Team Branca and especially Judge Beckloff for approving this project. We can not wait to see it.
