A black surgical mask that Michael Jackson allegedly wore the night before he died in 2009 has hit the auction block -- and the bids have already surpassed $20,000.

According to the auction house -- Nate D. Sanders Auctions -- MJ wore the mask (above) while rehearsing for his "This Is It" concert tour on June 24th, 2009 ... the singer's last ever rehearsal.

The auction house claims the mask  -- made of silk fabric, personally designed by the King of Pop -- contains visible traces of MJ's stage make-up along with a strand of his black hair.

One of MJ's former bodyguards was in possession of the mask, and swears by its authenticity. MJ famously wore surgical masks outdoors as a form of disguise.

Ohwell,

If you would google Matt Fiddes and do some research first before posting b.s., you would see that he has told 3 to 4 different stories about this in the previous years before Michael died. One time was no, I didn't donate sperm. Another time was Michael told me it wasn't mine. Another time was something differnt and so on and so on. Seriously, how can you believe him??? And what good man would blab about it thru the tabloids instead of going thru the source??? Someone after just money that is who...

Dui,

You are right on one thing and that is their will always be a cirque de soleil show with the different entertainers and such. That much is true. BUT, this cirque de soleil show has been the most succssful of any they have done. His music does come to life in this show whether you want to believe it or not. And the acrobats and such enhance that.
I have seen this show and it was sold out and packed all the nites it was in my city. No wonder it is still the #1 grossing concert tour still since its opening. And its not even a concert but it feels like it just without the star.
Whether you like it or not, loads and loads of people are going to see this show whether they are fans or not.

Will have to use HN's phrase. "Dumb as rocks".

Naw, don't think that is the case. But what I originally thought on why you post. Whatever floats the boat.

Regarding your question as to whether it is the same bodyguard I am not sure.


But I would be willing to bet that it is.
