June 25 will mark a year since Michael Jackson’s death, and to pay tribute a Japanese promoter is holding a sleepover of sorts inside the Tokyo Tower where the Neverland Collection — a huge assortment of the singer’s personal objects including sculptures, left, a 1967 Rolls-Royce Phantom, right, clothes and costumes from his “Thriller” video — has been on view since May 1. Reuters reported that starting on Sunday, people are expected to line up to buy tickets costing as much as $1,000 for the chance to sleep among Jackson’s belongings. Fans, to be selected at random, will enter the tower from 10:30 p.m. on June 25 and will be able to stay until 8 the next morning. “In Japan,” Hiroyuki Takamura of the Tokyo Tower said, “the tradition of being with the remains and possessions of passed love ones on the anniversary of their passing is an important ritual.»
