Unseen Michael Jackson live footage will feature in a reissue of the late singer's 1987 album 'Bad'.

The 'Bad 25' deluxe package, which is due to be released on September 18, will also feature demos and songs that didn't make the original cut of the album. It's the first time a full re-release of an album from his catalogue since his death in 2009.

The live footage is taken from the Jackson's performance at Wembley Stadium in 1988, a gig attended by Prince Charles and Princess Diana.

According to Reuters, the rarities were found in Jackson's own personal collection and thought to be the only copy of the performance.

Earlier this month, it was announced Jackson's iconic crystal glove will be sold at auction later this year, when it's expected to fetch more than $400,000 (£252, 540).

The item is included in a collection of stage costumes worn by the late King of Pop which will go under the hammer at Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills, California on December 2, with the proceeds going towards Guide Dogs of America and the Nathan Adelson Hospice in Las Vegas.
