The world unites in a global tribute to the late, great King of Pop at the Michael Jackson premiere London event

The world unites in a global tribute to the late, great King of Pop at the Michael Jackson premiere London event, which coincides exactly with film screenings of the This Is It documentary in Los Angeles and cities around the world. This Is It A lucky few will have the chance to attend the This Is It Michael Jackson premiere London event at the Odeon Cinema Leicester Square, which starts at 1am on Wednesday 28th October to coincide with the premiere screening in LA. Other cities taking part in the coordinated world premiere include New York, Rio de Janeiro, Berlin, Johannesburg and Seoul. Exclusive event Although tickets for the world premiere are likely to be hard to come by, if you haven't managed to get into this exclusive event you can stay up late to see a host of celebrities, like JLS, Leona Lewis, Peter Andre, Estelle, Annie Lennox, Will Young and more make their way into the special screening from 11.30pm to 12.30pm, whilst live footage of the Los Angeles premiere is broadcast to giant screens in Leicester Square. This Is It goes on general release at cinemas across London and the UK just a few hours after the Michael Jackson premiere London event in Leicester Square, so dedicated MJ fans will not have to wait much longer to see the film. Party in Leicester Square The party gets started from 9.30pm on Tuesday 27th October with DJ Spoony playing hits in Leicester Square, with giant video screens broadcasting Michael Jackson videos. At 11pm Duncan James from Blue, the evening's host, will officially kick off the event and at 11.15pm dance troupe Diversity will perform a Michael Jackson tribute. To watch these events you'll need a special wristband which will be available for collection from M&A Security Staff in Leicester Square Gardens from noon on Tuesday 27th October. Wristbands are limited and are available on a first come first served basis. Behind the scenes The This Is It documentary gives a rare behind the scenes glimpse into the last few months of Michael Jackson's life, as the star developed and rehearsed his performances for the hotly anticipated concerts that would have started in the summer of 2009 at the O2 Arena. Focusing on the months between March and June 2009, the film has been created from over a hundred hours of behind the scenes footage and features Jackson rehearsing a number of songs for the show.
