Michael Jackson’s iconic red and black jacket in the video to ‘Thriller’ has sold for $1.8m (£1.1m) at auction which took place yesterday in Beverley Hills.
Auction administrator Darren Julien told the press that the lot was purchased by Texan entrepreneur Milton Verret, who plans to take it ‘on tour’ to raise money for children’s hospitals.
Jackson wore two jackets in the video and the second garment is on display at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Julien had previously described the jacket as “the most recognised and significant piece of pop culture”.
