The Boston Massacre riles up American colonists, Che strikes a famous pose, Elvis is discharged, a plane crash kills Patsy Cline, and John Belushi overdoses, all on this day.
2009: Michael Jackson holds a brief and bizarre press conference announcing his plans to hold a series of comeback concerts titled "This Is It," suggesting possible retirement after the shows. The initial plan was for 10 concerts at London's O2 Arena, followed by shows in Paris, New York City and Mumbai. The London residency was increased to 50 dates after record breaking ticket sales, but Jackson would die on June 25, 2009, less than three weeks before the first show was due to begin in London.
