Jackson's glove plays starring role

THE Michael Jackson Gallery opened its doors to the public yesterday at Macau's Ponte 16 casino hotel, showcasing over 40 iconic items from MJ's career, including his famous rhinestone glove.

The opening ceremony was attended by pop stars and local officials.

Other items, such as a pair of crystal-encrusted socks worn during his Victory Tour in 1984, and his trademark black fedora are displayed in the gallery's main exhibition hall.

The sparkling white glove is famed for being worn by Jackson in 1983 at Motown's 25th anniversary TV special, where he performed "Billie Jean" and showcased the legendary moonwalk for the first time.

The Ponte 16 casino resort, which is half-owned by local gaming tycoon Stanley Ho's company SJM, paid US$350,000 for the glove at a New York auction last year.

Aside from the exhibition hall, the gallery also consists of a "time tunnel" showing the most important moments of MJ's life in music through pictures and videos, and a gift shop.
