Liza Minnelli's bitter and estranged husband David Gest bought all the tickets for his wife's first two comeback shows in London in 2002, fearing she wouldn't be able to sell out the shows.

The LIZA'S BACK concerts were a critical and commercial smash, but Gest admits he was initially worried about his partner's ability to sell tickets.

He says, "I bought up the first two nights thinking if you could pack in the first two nights, by the time the reviews came out she'd be able to sell tickets."
