Michael's last rehearsal shown as fans offered refund

Tuesday June 30, 2009

New pictures of Michael Jackson rehearsing for his forthcoming concerts show the late singer looking energetic and raring to go. 

Seen on stage just hours before his tragic passing, the king of pop appeared to be back to his best and full of confidence for his July concerts.

Meanwhile, devastated fans who bought tickets for the gigs have also been informed by event organisers that they're entitled to a full refund.

AEG Live, the promoter of the 50-concert run at the O2 arena, are giving fans the option of getting their money back or, alternatively, the choice of being sent their tickets as souvenirs.

"Since (Michael) loved his fans in life, it is incumbent upon us to treat them with the same reverence and respect after his death," says the president of AEG.

With fans still coming to terms with the terrible loss, the star's childhood friend actor Mark Lester revealed the singer committed to the gigs so that his children could see "what daddy does best".
