Michael Jackson

Three months after the passing of Michael Jackson, the popstar is still attracting a legion of fans to see the last pieces of footages that showed him alive, before his tragic death last June of cardiac arrest at the age of 50.

Within two hours, the 3,000 tickets to the advance screening of Jackson’s “This Is It” documentary were snapped up by fans who had begun lining up three days earlier.

The documentary directed by Jackson’s longtime collaborator Kenny Ortega was pieced together with more than 100 hours of the singer’s last rehearsals footage as he prepared for his 50 show comeback tour at London’s O2 arena.

“This Is It” opens worlwide on Oct. 28, and will have a limited two-week run.
