PIC: This shop in Athlone has a pretty unique, Michael Jackson-themed claim to fame
"Leave Me Athlone" - Michael Jackson, circa 2006.
Okay that was pretty Bad but before we Beat It we'd like to tell you about this Off The Wall shop in Athlone.
As it turns out, there's a shop in Athlone by the name of Bastion Gallery where Michael Jackson spent two hours. We heard he was there so long because he couldn't decide whether he wanted a pair of gloves in Black or White?
He paid for one pair but nicked the other, like the Smooth Criminal he was.
