5 members of the Jackson family have announced a tribute concert for deceased pop idol Michael Jackson in Cardiff, Wales this October. Katherine Jackson â€“ Michaelâ€™s mother â€“ along with siblings La Toya, Marlon, Jackie, and Tito attended the announcement of the tribute; while absent brothers Jermaine and Randy released a statement saying,
“We want to make clear that this does not reflect the position of the entire family. While we wholeheartedly support the spirit of a tribute that honors our brother, we find it impossible to support an event that is due to take place during the criminal trial surrounding Michael’s death.”
The â€œMichael Forever The Tribute Concertâ€ is said to have a roster of A-class performers to be released everyday, one act at a time for the next two weeks starting today. The promoters also advertised the possibility of a Jackson 5 reunion, but with Jermaine and Randyâ€™s statement, that appears to be negatory. All profits will go to charities in the US and Great Britain.
Should Mama Jackson and four of her kids be supporting this event while the trial is going on or are Randy and Jermaine just being stubborn? And what does Joe have to say about this?
