Dancing Michael Jackson fans hit the streets of Mong Kok yesterday to celebrate the release of the posthumous documentary on the singer, This Is It. The final work of the 'King of Pop' will open in cinemas across Hong Kong this week, and the fans took the opportunity to celebrate their idol's music. Jackson's sudden death on June 25 saw an outpouring of grief across the world. Yesterday, fans took to the bustling streets of Mong Kok to bring some of the singer's hits, including Dangerous and Beat It, to life again. Those paying tribute - including members of the Michael Jackson Hong Kong Fan Club and performers from the @Dance school - attracted the attention of dozens of cheering shoppers as they spun and strutted through energetic performances of the singer's moves. A performance of Beat It by a group of 25 fans proved to be a favourite with the crowd, prompting delighted calls for an encore. The Jackson fans also revealed plans for activities on an even greater scale to celebrate Jackson's life and career. While they did not reveal details, they confirmed that the events would coincide with Thursday's release of This Is It. One fan club member said: 'We will dress better and more formally, and we will hold an even more serious celebration to venerate our forever idol.' Extra late-night showings of This Is It will be put on at 15 cinemas on Thursday to satisfy fans who cannot wait to see the 112-minute documentary. More than 15,000 local fans have already ordered their tickets to see the film since bookings opened a month ago - with 6,220 making reservations in the first hour alone. But they have not been as enthusiastic as those in the United States, where the movie topped the weekly box office sales at big online ticket outlets. The film will be shown for two weeks at 31 cinemas.
