Michael Jackson died suddenly ten years ago today, devastating millions of loyal fans across the world.
He died of cardiac arrest at the age of 50 just three weeks before he was set to hit the stage once again.
The Thriller singer had been about to embark on a gruelling 50 show tour at the 02 Arena, the doomed This Is It gigs that never came to be.
He left behind three children Prince, Paris and Blanket, who were 12, 11, and seven-years-old at the time.
But where is Michael Jackson buried? And can I visit his grave? Here’s everything you need to know.
Where is Michael Jackson buried?
Jackson is buried in the Holly Terrace Grand Mausoleum at Glendale Forest Lawn Memorial Park.
The cemetery is located five miles from Hollywood in Glendale, North Los Angeles.
Other celebrities are buried in the same place, including Bette Davis, Lucille Ball, Humphrey Bogart and Clark Gable.
Jackson’s family were so concerned about his body after his death that they decided to have his coffin entombed in concrete.
He was buried in full stage costume, along with items from his life in music including his iconic white gloves.
He was going to be laid-to-rest in a gold coffin but the Jacksons were so concerned about grave robbers and looters, they chose concrete instead.
Jackson’s brother Marlon revealed that the children wrote “Daddy we love you, we miss you” on notes which were placed in his coffin.
The casket cost £18,000 and the singer was fitted with a special wig to give him flowing shoulder-length hair.
And a make-up artist painted his face to ensure he is buried as if he was taking to the stage for his last bow.
Can I visit Michael Jackson’s grave?
The spot where Jackson is buried is closed to the public and is surrounded by high walls and anyone visiting has to show ID.
CCTV cameras linked to sensors are installed around his grave, which will activate an alarm to warn security guards of any would-be trespassers.
Visitors can visit the cemetry but will not be able to get close to the area where Jackson was laid to rest.
