Michael Jackson concert merchandise for sale
Michael Jackson’s comeback concerts will never happen, but you can still get the T-shirt.
Merchandise from Jackson’s “This Is It” tour, which was scheduled to begin Monday in London, will be available online and at retailers across the United States.
Jackson helped design the concert T-shirts and other show souvenirs, said Peter LoFrumento, a spokesman for the merchandising company, Bravado.
“Michael was very adamant about not just doing T-shirts and posters and key chains,” he said. “He wanted to do something special and make it really innovative and different, things that were functional and fun and that his fans would like.”
Among the items for sale: T-shirts commemorating the first and second nights of the concerts at London’s O2 arena, belt buckles, caps, sunglasses and mugs. A varsity jacket modeled after the one Jackson wore in the “Thriller” video will also be available.
Jackson died June 25 in Los Angeles while preparing for the 50-date concert tour.
