Here are a couple of photos from Michael Jackson’s last concert rehearsal that was held last week Tuesday, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
Photographer Kevin Mazur (who owns popular photo agency WIREIMAGE) has been shooting MJ for years and released this statement with the photos:
“I am devastated by the sudden loss of ‘The King of Pop,’ who I have photographed numerous times since the Victory Tour in the ’80s. When he hit the stage at rehearsal, I was thrilled that the magical Michael Jackson was BACK!!! I felt the same adrenaline rush as when I photographed him the first time moonwalking. I was so looking forward to shooting the O2 Arena performances with the amazing production that Kenny Ortega and AEG put together with Michael for his fans.”
