Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson Planning More Dates At Time Of His Death

Michael Jackson was planning two more tours at the time of his death.

The 'Thriller' singer was just days away from starting his landmark 50 date 'This Is It' residency in London when he died of acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009, but his brother, Jermaine, claims he was eventually planning further performances after these shows.

In his new book, 'You Are Not Alone: Michael Through a Brother's Eyes', Jermaine writes: "After his 'This Is It' dates were done he had two more tours up his sleeve: 'Back By Popular Demand' dates that no one knew about.

"I know what Michael said in March 2009, 'When I say this is it, it really means this is it. This is the final curtain call.'

"That was his great tease. He was a master salesman too, and I the world thought the that London would be their last opportunity to see him perform, then they would rush to buy tickets."

Jermaine - who sung with Michael in the Jackson 5 - added he believes Michael turned to Propofol, an anesthetic reserved for sedating patients before surgery in hospitals and requiring strict controls because of his nerves over performing at the 'This Is It' shows.

He added: "It didn't surprise me that his insomnia was returning in the run-up to his London dates because of the unimaginable pressure to which he was subjected, most of it self-imposed.

"He was his own biggest rival in the relentless drive to be perfect in the great comeback he'd envisaged."

Its time for you Jermaine to shut up. You are the picture of contradiction. Why do it????? To make money, which is so obvious, to spit out your jealousy about your brother that you harbored for years. You are talking through your ass man and its pathetic!

Michael IS listed in Forest Lawn - Glendale. He is in the mosuleum, there is NO public access, only family and close friend who are on a list are allowed in to visit anyone there...for good reason, it keeps the unwanted out. Wrong name on the death certificate? Michael Joseph Jackson is Michael's name, this is what is on the death certificate. People really need to know the facts before putting statements out there for others to view. Remember, his family does read some of what people say and they should be able to read wonderful things about Michael, not hate. Think about this, how would you feel if the shoe was on the other foot and people were putting horrible, untrue and hurtful things out about a family member you truly loved, it wouldn't feel so good would it? Remember, L.O.V.E. will get you a lot farther in life than hate ever will.
