CNN & AEG Entertainment recently released this video of Michael Jackson and his crew rehearsing on stage in Los Angeles at the Staples Center for the King of Pop’s then-upcoming “This Is It” tour just days before his untimely death. We’re not sure what people were seeing when they described him as “frail” and “lethargic” in his last rehearsal, but this video of him obviously keeping up with his 20-something-year-old dancers speaks for itself. He looked pretty healthy to us!
Peep the rehearsal video below!
In related news, MJ’s memorial service will ironically be held at Staples Center Tuesday morning (Jul 7) at 10:00 A.M. and if you would like to attend, you have to hit up the Staples Center website to be entered into a random drawing.
The service will be held at two separate venues, with the main event being at Staples and a simulcast will play live at the Nokia Theater. According to TMZ, Only 17,500 tickets are available for the event (11,000 for Staples & 6,500 for Nokia). And only U.S. residents can enter the drawing.
No word yet on whether or not Michael’s body will be at the memorial on Tuesday but TMZ also got word that he’ll be buried in an extremely rare $25,000 solid bronze, 14-karat gold plated custom casket called a “Promethian.” This was the same casket used to bury James Brown.
