Jackson and his brothers once did 31 shows in one week at the Apollo for $1,000.

Inside, DJs will spin Jackson's music accompanied by video tributes.

Fans will be invited to write down their thoughts outside on a wall on 125th Street.

On Wednesday night, Apollo's weekly Amateur Night will be dedicated to the King of Pop, who won the event the Jackson 5 in 1969. Audience members will be encouraged to "moonwalk" during the "soul train" dance line.
