Hundreds of Michael Jackson fans in London congregated Monday to pay their respects to the “king of pop” on the day he had been due to begin his run of 50 concerts.

Around 600 people turned up to O2 Arena, adding messages to a wall of tributes to mourn their idol. Facebook groups and fan sites had encouraged fans to bring candles and flowers for the vigil.

Jackson died on June 25, weeks ahead of his comeback concert and the tickets for his London concerts sold out in record time.

“This was going to be the best summer of my life. I was going to go to five shows altogether, it would have been fantastic. I can’t believe rather than coming here to see him perform I am here to mourn… It’s devastating, it really is,” said a fan named Michael, Reuters reported.

AEG Live, the organizer of Jackson’s planned comeback concerts, has offered full refunds for the canceled shows after Jackson died while rehearsing for the shows. The organizers are discussing the possibility of staging a tribute show featuring elements of Jackson’s last masterpiece –This Is It – on August 29, which would have been Michael Jackson’s 51st birthday.
