Michael Jackson - Jackson Family Planning Another Tribute Concert
Michael Jackson's family members are organising another tribute show in memory of the late superstar following a number of failed attempts to bring a commemorative concert to the stage.
The Thriller hitmaker's mother Katherine is working on plans to stage a gig along with the singer's siblings Marlon, Tito, Jackie and La Toya.
The concert, which has been called a "thriller of a show" in a press release from the Jackson family, will benefit charities in both the U.S. and U.K. and more details will be revealed in a press conference in Los Angeles in Monday (25Jul11).
Jermaine Jackson previously planned to honour his brother at a show in Vienna, Austria just months after the superstar passed away in 2009, but the plans were shelved along with another idea to host a concert in London on the 2010 anniversary of the star's death.
The new concert is being coordinated by Jackson's family and bosses at promotion company Global Live Events, but does not involve Jackson's estate, according to the Los Angeles Times.
