Michael Jackson’s last concert rehearsal at
Staples Center on Tuesday, June 23, 2009
in Los Angeles, California.
“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.” — Kevin Mazur, Celebrity Photographer and Founder of WireImage.com
