I guess you can do it on your own – pick key places in the world where the King of Pop had gone or visited before his death and create your own Michael Jackson tour. If you do not have the time to plan the whole trip, though, there is someone who is willing to do it for you for a price.
STA Travel in the United Kingdom is currently offering a King of Pop Pilgrimage, which will take Michael Jackson fans across 5 continents in 126 days. Seeing that there are only 365 days a year, it is pretty obvious that anyone wanting to go on this tour will need to plan his life way ahead of time.
The pilgrimage will cost die hard fans ₤12, 000 for the entire tour. If you’re short on money, though, you can opt to go on separate legs. A leg can cost ₤2,759 each – still a considerable cost if you ask me. Then again, if you are that much of a Michael Jackson fan, the cost shouldn’t be much of an issue.
There are 10 legs in the journey, starting in London. Dubbed Explore London, this leg lasts for 2 days.
Leg 2 is the European Pioneer Tour, which lasts for 36 days. The leg starts and ends in London as well, but cities such as Paris, Venice, and Athens are included.
Leg 3 will be a night in Bahrain in the UAE, where Michael Jackson used to go for a quick break every now and then.
Leg 4 takes 20 days – from Johannesburg to Cape Town. This is dubbed the South Africa Encompassed tour.
Leg 5 takes you to Asia – 2 nights in Brunei, where Michael Jackson spent time with his friend the Sultan.
Leg 6 will have you spend 2 nights in Tokyo, where some of the most ardent fans can be found.
Leg 7 takes you down under to spend 2 nights in Sydney. This is where he married Debbie Rowe – but you may already know that!
Leg 8 starts and ends in San Francisco – a total of 15 days.
Leg 9 – 45 days for the Southern Cross tour, which will take you from Rio to Lima. Some of MJ’s music videos were filmed here.
Leg 10 saves the best for last – the Big Apple.
