Michael Jackson fans have been camping for days in downtown Los Angeles to get tickets for the debut of a film about the fallen pop star rehearsing for a concert tour derailed by his death.
By Saturday morning about 300 people were ensconced in a line in front of the Nokia Theatre, where commemorative tickets for debut showings of “This Is It” were to go on sale the first minute into Sunday, reports AFP.

“We don’t sleep, we stay up all night,” said Leticia Martin, who had staked out a spot near the front of the queue. The 26-year-old medical technician spent Friday night learning dance moves to Jackson’s iconic “Thriller” song from costumed zombies that entertained those waiting in line.

Some fans snuggled in sleeping bags on the concrete, while others napped in folding chairs.

“We’re like one big family,” Martin told AFP as she scanned the encampment. Theatre operators expecting a crowd had used metal barriers to cordon off eight rows, three of which were empty leaving plenty of dancing room for a group reminiscent of a small tribe of pop music refugees.

Jackson fans were eager to get their hands on some of the first 500 movie tickets, which the film’s promoters said will commemorate “This Is It” concerts Jackson had planned in London.

About 3,000 tickets went on sale starting early Sunday for the behind-the-scenes concert film’s Oct. 27th debut in Los Angeles.
