Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson To Get Motorbike Memorial

A customised Michael Jackson motorcycle will be driven through his final resting place tomorrow (25.06.10) to mark the second anniversary of his death.

The vehicle - which is emblazoned with images of the singer, who died two years ago from acute Propofol intoxication - was created by family friend Marcell 'Porkchop' Miller and days after the late star's daughter Paris, 13, tweeted pictures of herself and her siblings inspecting the bike, TMZ now report it will be driven through Forrest Lawn Memorial Park tomorrow.

The King of Pop's hometown of Gary, Indiana - where he lived with his family until 1969 - are also planning a tribute to mark his passing, and promise to do so every year.

Mayor Rudy Clay said: "The world can expect a 'Tribute to Michael' every year in June in Gary, Indiana. The world is invited."

The free-admission tribute will take place at the 'Thriller' hitmaker's childhood home from 5-8pm, culminating with a candlelit vigil.

Those wishing to participate in the vigil are advised to bring their own candles.

Meanwhile, Sony Pictures Entertainment have agreed to grant lawyers for Dr. Conrad Murray - who is accused of the involuntary manslaughter of the singer - access to over 100 hours of raw footage from Jackson's rehearsals for his planned 50-date 'This Is It' London residency.

However, a stipulation filed with a Los Angeles court yesterday (23.06.11) says they are not allowed to publicly comment on what they see in the 21 boxes of film.

The lawyers are believed to be searching for footage that would show the singer was unwell in the lead up to his death.
