Promoters of the shows said in March that he had passed a lengthy physical examination. Jackson was rushed to the UCLA Medical Centre shortly before 12.30pm local time.

Michael Jackson was the most exciting performer of his generation, known for his feverish, crotch-grabbing dance moves and his high-pitched voice punctuated with squeals and titters. His single sequined glove, tight military-style jacket and aviator sunglasses were trademarks second only to his ever-changing, surgically altered appearance.

Some of the world's best-selling solo studio albums are Off the Wall (1979), Thriller (1982), Bad (1987), Dangerous (1991), HIStory (1995). "Beat It", "Billie Jean"

In the early 1980s, he became a dominant figure in popular music and the first African-American entertainer to amass a strong crossover following on MTV. Music videos such as "Beat It", "Billie Jean", ‘Thriller’, ‘Black or White’ and Scream’ made Jackson an enduring staple on MTV in the 1990s.

Michael Joseph Jackson was one of the few artists to have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice.
