Jackson's glove and Thriller costume to appear at O2

Judge gives 'firm approval' for memorabilia tour to begin in London in October

Michael Jackson's trademark white gloves and a custom-made Rolls Royce with a gold interior will be included in a six-month memorabilia tour honouring the star.

The tour kicks off in October at London's O2 Arena, where Jackson was due to perform 50 gigs for his final This Is It tour.

His sequin jacket, a golf buggy, a painting of Jackson as Peter Pan and his iconic Thriller outfit will also be displayed, according to Now magazine.

Preparations for the event are apparently underway.

On Friday, a judge firmly approved a deal between Jackson's estate and a concert promoter to exhibit his memorabilia.

The memorabilia tour is expected to net the Jackson estate $6m, according to the news website msnbc.com.

Tour organiser AEG plans to open the exhibit on October 28 using footage of the singer's final rehearsals.

Jackson died of a suspected heart attack on 25 June, aged 50.
