So, it's pretty much impossible to get into the Michael Jackson tribute at the Staples Center. It probably could be done, but it would be tough. Thousands of people are going and it's going to be a madhouse. So, I offer a solution: instead of honoring the King of Pop at the Staples Center, join us at Universal Citywalk this Thursday at 7 PM to pay tribute to Michael Jackson. Remember his incredible songs, dances, and movies with other Michael Jackson fans.
The event is free. There will be screenings of The Wiz and Michael Jackson’s Thriller. There, fans will think back to the King of Pop's great life: from being the youngest member in The Jackson Five to becoming the King of Pop during his solo career. The Wiz is an updated version of the Wizard of Oz, in which Jackson played the Scarecrow. Guinness World Records listed the "Thriller" music video as the "most successful music video" in 2006. It had over 9 million sales. The album Thriller is also the best selling album of all time.
If you've never been to Citywalk, it's really cool. I go all the time. Universal City is "The Entertainment Capital of The World." They have restaurants, including a Bubba Gump and a Buca Di Peppo. There's also the Universal Park, which is very fun if you have time to go there.They just reopened the Universal backlot, where over a thousand television shows and movies have been filmed, including Ghost Whisperer, Psycho, and Back to the Future.
Michael Jackson will always be remembered. He died June 25th and he's still the most talked about thing in the news. If you live in L.A. and are free on Thursday, bring the whole family to celebrate and honor Michael Jackson's life. R.I.P. Michael Jackson. It's a shame he died so young.
