Michael Jackson was photographed shopping for antiques in Los Angeles yesterday (April 21).

The singer wore a colourful hoodie and surgical mask on the brief excursion.

Jackson has been spotted in public increasingly over recent weeks as he rehearses for his comeback shows in London this summer.

Despite reports the singer is not in good health, he is scheduled to play 50 dates at the O2 Arena over a period of eight months.

The self-proclaimed King of Pop will perform to over a million people during his residency.

Jackson, now 50, has not performed a full concert since he was cleared of child molestation charges in 2005.

His last full tour, entitled HIStory, took place in 1996 and '97.
