Michael Jackson's brothers are planning a world tour as the Jackson 4.

The remaining members of the group - Marlon, Tito, Jackie and Jermaine - announced their plans yesterday (09.12.09) for a reunion next year, and hope to recreate the sound that made them stars as the Jackson 5 before Michael went solo.

Jackie, 58, said: "For 40 years, we've had great support from our fans around the world. And we should give them a great tour.

Jermaine, 54, added: "We want to go out there, hit the road and just jam."

His brothers also revealed they all knew Michael - who passed away from acute Propofol intoxication on June 25 - was dead before their parents got in touch.

Jackie was shopping when someone walked past and said "Michael Jackson died" not realising who he was.

He said: "I walked outside and I got a phone call from my mother - she told me that it was true."

Jermaine "found out from CNN" and Marlon got a phone call from a friend who asked if his brother was alright.

He said: "As I was calling my brothers, calling my mom, my daughter downstairs said, 'Dad, Uncle Michael is dead.' It was unbelievable."

So what, tour all you want, Michael had the snap, crakle and pop that made music. It is not the same, you can pay tribute all you want, but Michael is not there. It's Michael I want to see, not a lot of wannabe's and has beens. Michael was it, he had it all, and always will. There will never be anyone like him, ever again, or anyone come close to him. Just because your last name is Jackson, doesn't make you an entertainer. Michael was and always will be the ONE.
