Michael Jackson died two years ago today

The 2nd anniversary of Michael Jackson's death will be marked by fans who've converged on Los Angeles from around the world. Some cinemas will screen This is It. Tomorrow Juliens Auctions will sell dozens of items of Jackson memorabilia, including one of the two leather jackets the singer wore for the Thriller video. The list price is $200,000-$400,000. Also on sale are a Jackson glove and the wig he wore for the London news conference when he announced his This is It comeback.

Meanwhile, there could be a further delay in the trial of Jackson's doctor, Conrad Murray. The judge is allowing a defense request to view many hours of rehearsal footage for This is It. The trial may not get underway until sometime in October, because of the time it will take to watch the rushes.
