Two months after his sudden collapse and death, the late King of Pop will be buried on August 29, on what would have been his 51st birthday.
The Jackson family is not releasing much detail, but on August 18, a spokesman announced that Jackson will be buried at Forest Lawn-Glendale in California.
Jackson's father told New York Daily News, a day before the official announcement was made, that his son would be buried on August 29.**
The location of Jackson's burial--the Holly Terrace within the Great Mausoleum at Forest Lawn--is said to feature replicas of paintings by Michelangelo and was noted by Time Magazine as the "New World's Westminster Abbey."***
