Final Michael Jackson Rehearsal Video Released

by at . Comments

The last video of Michael Jackson - filmed just two days before he died - in preparation for his This Is It! tour has surfaced, and shows what might have been.

Here's MJ tearing into "They Don't Care About Us" ...

While tour organizer AEG Live has started refunding the roughly $85 million worth of tickets for Jackson's 50-night London run, but is also offering buyers the option of claiming the one-of-a-kind, Jackson-designed tickets as souvenirs.

"It is one of the hottest items on the memorabilia market right now," says an E! source working on the AEG-sanctioned refunding process. "People realize they can get more money selling them to collectors than getting a refund."

Tickets to the O2 arena shows are still selling for as much as $400.

Meanwhile, AEG is said to be planning to release Jackson's rehearsal footage on CD and DVD, packaged as "live concert" recordings. A movie is also being considered.

The entertainment conglomerate, which also owns L.A.'s Staples Center, where a funeral for Michael Jackson is set to take place Tuesday, is contemplating the idea of turning its planned MJ extravaganza into some sort of tribute event.
