Michael Jackson's siblings Tito and Rebbie are to reveal untold anecdotes about his personal life in a new stage show.
The pair will be joined by the Thriller hitmaker's pal David Gest and childhood friend, singer Deniece Williams, to entertain audiences with stories of Jackson's life.
The show, titled A Jackson Named Michael, will also feature five hours of unseen film footage from Gest's personal archives, a question-and-answer session, and a 30-minute onscreen interview with the late legend's mother, Katherine.
Gest says, "The majority of the show will be reminiscences and stories about Michael that the public has never heard. I will also unveil a treasure trove of film clips that were not included in my upcoming film. I have more than five hours of unseen footage and 30 minutes of rare Katherine Jackson footage of her reminiscing about Michael growing up in Gary as well as stories about all her kids."
The show is due to tour the U.K., Europe and Australia next year (12). Gest's new film, Michael Jackson: The Life of an Icon, tells the singer's life story and includes interviews with more than 50 of his close friends and family. It will be released next month (Oct11).

I would love to see more documentary made to expose the real Michael positively to the world. Media had trashed and twisted him enough but they have no right to exploit the justice he deserves for their greed, advantages and jealousy.Glad to live outside US and not being feed with all dirts. He is loved by millions globally. Please air or publish as much as possible materials to tell the truth. No matter through the Estates or his family, I will support.

It is very disappointing that these new shows are never slated for the US. It is time for the family, Gest and others to allow those of us that love and miss Michael in this country to share in the events. If the reason is the viperous US media, take a stand and step over them. Don't punish the fans.

Corlista, the problem is in the U.S. there is always someone, sueing and complaining or someone of means attemtping to stop anything that has MJ's name in it or on it. If it's not MJ's estate, it's celebrities that assume they have some right to dictate what someone else does where MJ is concerned( like NeYO or the Black Eyed Peas) sometimes it's family( like Jermaine or Randy) but mostly it's the non-supporters (haters) of MJ causing all kind of BS, because they still can't leave the past in the past ( since they have proven how it's easier to believe the extortionist families and the liars over MJ). So many in this country have problems everytime Michael Jackson's family does anything especially if there is money to be made (like that's a shock). My view is if anyone should benefit from MJ's name it should be "MJ's" family and MJ's children, in other words the very people that he loved all of his life from birth to death, not all of the outside leeches with contracts, a network or a magazine or a microphone. It is easier and less amount of BS because MJ is more appreciative overseas, because those people loved Michael Jackson from year 1 to year 40 and most without ANY judgement about his face, his past, or about every breath this man took. So as much as I wish this country can appreciate that great talent instead of him being found gulity on bogus charges all these years later then maybe we will see more in the US. In the meantime Michael's family and friends have to do what they have to do wherever that may be!!

Yanni: Thank you for your response. I appreciate your thoughts. I understand that there would be issues with the Estate but the rest of it I'm afraid has to do with still so much negativity re Michael in this country. The unfortunate part is how will that ever change if positive imaging of Michael is never allowed here? It just makes me sad.

I was talking and my words disappeared. Anyway, Michael Jackson was a person of means and he did everything in his power and from his pocket to help people all over the world, but it seems that in the U.S. is where he had his biggest critics and still does. Stars of every caliber have been extorted for their money from singers to sports figures and everyone in between, I just can't understand why it is so easy for people to have the evidence pushed in their faces, but they choose to believe two families who not only wanted Michael's money but they tried to get other stars money as well. Talking positively about MJ give you a wonderful feeling. Talking negatively and disrespectively about Michael Jackson take a lot of more energy. Sadly, as much as he will be missed by millions of us, there will always be people who claims to dislike him or his music or those who call him by unnecessary names that pitiful people like Sneddon tried to call him, and on and on and on all I can say is how pathetic of an existence they must have. Blogging things that you get from the likes of tabloid trash like TMZ or Nancy Grace or Diane Dimond or Sneddon and the rest of the people whose careers depended on Michael Jackson and they would rather believe the garbage and spread that trash when they could do a little investigation and find out the truth, I guess that might take to much of their precious time. If you can blog you can google. Anyway,I hope Michael is at finally at peace now and it doesn't matter what they say in the US or anywhere else!!
