Michael Jackson Birthday Celebration

Director Spike Lee's Brooklyn celebration of Michael Jackson's birthday has been moved due to predictions of a big crowd.

The free bash will now be held in the Nethermead meadow in Prospect Park on Saturday afternoon, rain or shine.

It originally was planned for Fort Greene Park.

The New York Times reported Friday that the initial crowd estimate of 2,000 swelled to more than 10,000.

Another Michael Jackson birthday tribute show is happening in NYC at the Nokia Theatre in Times Square.

Jackson would be 51. He died on June 25th.
