America has lost its idol, its savior, its King of Pop. Though the legendary Michael Jackson may have gone to another place, his greatness lives on in the hearts of his loyal fans across the world. His greatness especially lives on in glamorous Gary, Indiana, hometown of the pop sensation (and many large steel mills). To take you to the core of the MJ’s history, JWR tours has launched a King of Pop Hometown Tour. Read what a few media outlets had to say.

This tour will take you from Chicago to Gary aboard a comfortable coach bus. In Gary, you’ll get to know Jackson the way his friends and neighbors knew the kid who would sing on street corners and play stickball with his family in front of their humble abode. Longtime Gary residents and Jackson friends will lead your exploration of Jackson’s roots. Among many points of interest in MJ’s life, you’ll see:

  • The one-story home where Jackson lived when he was just “Mike”
  • MJ’s former junior high school
  • The steel mill where his dad worked
  • The old location of the first record company to sign the Jackson 5
  • One of the first venues the Jackson 5 ever performed

Tours depart Chicago Thursday through Sunday at noon. In just four hours, you’ll gain a uniquely personal perspective of the real life of the greatest star of our time.
