A permanent memorial to Michael Jackson is set to be unveiled in London to mark the first anniversary of the superstar’s death.
The King of Pop passed away on 25 June 2009 after suffering a cardiac arrest at his Los Angeles home – just weeks before he was due to head to the British capital to kick off his ill-fated This Is It residency at the O2 Arena.

And now a plaque commemorating the singer’s legacy is to be laid at the Lyric Theatre in London’s West End, the venue which houses Jackson tribute show Thriller.

The memorial will be unveiled at a ceremony on Thursday, which will see performances from the cast of the hit musical, as well as British dance troupe Diversity.
