All the fans will know the moustache figure next to Michael Jackson during the History Tour. Part of the Mama Concert Production which promoted not only History Tour but also Mystery back in the day, Teddy was a German figure that Michael got closed to during the Dangerous Tour (Teddy was a translator and help Michael during down time in Germany while on Tour). He was also part of the concerts “Michael Jackson & Friends” in Munich.

Unfortunately Teddy Lakis passed away following a heart attack in his home town Munich and his smile will be missed!
