These few photos have been revealed to have been Michael Jackson’s final images captured on film.The photo above is from a handout photo provided by AEG/Concerts West and was taken May 6, 2009 as Michael prepared for the “This Is It” London concerts. The photos below were taken during his 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
