Michael Jackson: This Is It? Pt. 2


Excited by the possibility of thousands, maybe even millions of people standing in line waiting to get tickets to the Michael Jackson documentary, “This Is It,” set to open up at all fourteen theatres in the entertainment complex known as L.A. Live! in downtown L.A., three evangelists and myself jumped in the church van and hurried to the excitment. (Read Part 1 by clicking here.)


The first sign of trouble appeared when we drove up to the parking lot: It was nearly empty—and the parking was free!

The second sign of trouble was when we actually looked at the ticket line…

…and saw about 50 eager fans lounging on their lawn chairs and makeshift cots.

The third sign that this was a bad move was when my three Gospel compatriots got escorted off the premises by Security for handing out Gospel tracts to that massive crowd of fifty.

The fourth sign of trouble was that I didn’t get escorted off the premises. And everyone knows that never happens!

That Was That!

  1. Good work men. Spying out the land. We’ll take them next time all the way through the L&G.

  2. Steve, Kathy and I were spending time with a few thousand of our friends just across the street at the Convention Center. The National Youth workers Convention was at the convention center from Thursday through Monday. We saw the Michael Jackson line and thought of you. Actually there were a lot of people there in the evenings (especially Saturday night). You should have hung around because there was a large crowd at Stables saturday night for a boxing match. BTW, I did talk with a few MJ fans on thrsday.

  3. LOL! Too funny.
