LOS ANGELES (AP) - Documents displayed for a jury show the promoter of Michael Jackson's ill-fated comeback concerts contemplated a worldwide tour for the entertainer in the year before his death.

A possible touring schedule drafted in September 2008 included shows in Europe, India, Australia and the United States.

It was prepared by a top AEG Live LLC executive trying to coax Jackson back on stage for the first time in more than a decade.

An accounting expert testifying for Jackson's mother in a negligent hiring case against AEG says he relied on its projections when he estimated the entertainer could have earned more than $1 billion if he didn't die in June 2009.

AEG has disputed the figures prepared by Arthur Erk, a certified public accountant.
