Jackson fans line up for 'This Is It' tickets

Posted:
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Dozens of Michael Jackson fans were among the first to line up for "This Is It" tickets.

The winding queue for tickets to the first public screenings of the documentary opened late Friday afternoon in the courtyard outside the Nokia Theatre at the L.A. Live complex in downtown Los Angeles. The film features a behind-the-scenes look at Jackson preparing for the series of London shows he was rehearsing for before he died June 25.

Tickets for the Oct. 27 shows aren't scheduled to go on sale until early Sunday morning, meaning Jackson devotees may spend days in line. The first 500 fans in line have been promised commemorative lenticular tickets designed by Jackson for the London concerts at the O2 Arena.
