King of Pop Michael Jackson’s “This Is It” Releases Worldwide

Posted on: October 28, 2009

Legendary music super star, king of pop, Michael Jackson may have passed away a few months back but his legacy is here to stay. Michael Jackson’s concert movie “This Is It” was released worldwide today, simultaneously in 15 countries, and was received all over by scores of die-hard MJ fans. The movie premiere in LA saw celebrities like Will Smith, Jennifer Lopez, Paris Hilton, Paula Abdul and Peter Andre and the same enthusiasm was seen all over the world.

An icon for millions around the world, Michael died days before he was supposed to make a comeback on the stage with his “This Is It” series of concerts starting at the O2 Arena in London.

After the shocking demise of the musical genius, while fans were devastated, Columbia Pictures decided to start work on a concert movie of Michael Jackson using footage of hours spent by the King Of Pop preparing for the series of concerts before his death.

“This Is It” shows Michael rehearsing many of his songs which he was supposed to perform in his comeback concerts. The movie also promises to show fans the private and never-seen-before side of Michael Jackson and captures the true genius of this multi-talented, globally appealing music idol while he was at work preparing to put up yet another spectacular show, a show which was never meant to happen.

Kenny Ortega, who was MJ’s creative partner and director of his stage shows, is the director of the movie and it has been produced by Randy Phillips, Paul Gongaware and Kenny himself.

Michael also left many unreleased tracks which he was working on. This music is also being released as the “This Is It” Soundtrack – The Music That Inspired The Movie.

Tickets for the movie are on sale only for a short two-week period and the maddening rush of fans, in a way, to pay tribute to their idol is expected to make “This Is It” into a blockbuster…

Did you get to see the movie? I saw it and the movie was awesome. Awesome! I’m hoping for a tribute album. I even sent Sony a list of whom I think should appear on the album and who should sing what. Let me know what you think. Thanks. http://morningerection.wordpress.com/2009/10/03/michael-jackson-tribute-album/
