Michael Jackson - Jackson's Thriller Jacket To Hit The Road
Michael Jackson's iconic red and black Thriller jacket is set to go on tour - to raise money for charity.
The item, which Jackson autographed for his longtime costume designers Dennis Tompkins and Michael Bush, was snapped up by American commodities broker Milton Verret for $1.8 million (£1.13 million) at a California auction last month (Jun11).
Verret is now hoping to put the jacket to good use by placing it on display in a sponsored trek around the world.
Money raised from the global tour will be donated to organisations benefiting sick children - a cause that was always close to Jackson's heart.
