MJ was planning more tours at time of his death, says brother
Washington: Michael Jackson’s brother Jermaine has revealed that the pop superstar was planning two more tours after his ‘This Is It’ shows at the time of his death.
The ‘Thriller’ singer was just days away from starting his landmark 50 date ‘This Is It’ residency in London when he died of acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009.
But his brother claims he was eventually planning further performances after these shows in his new book, ‘You Are Not Alone: Michael Through a Brothers Eyes’.
“After his ‘This Is It’ dates were done he had two more tours up his sleeve: ‘Back By Popular Demand’ dates that no one knew about,” Contactmusic quoted Jermaine as writing in the book.
“I know what Michael said in March 2009, ‘When I say this is it, it really means this is it. This is the final curtain call.’
“That was his great tease. He was a master salesman too, and I the world thought that London would be their last opportunity to see him perform, then they would rush to buy tickets,” he wrote.
