Tito and Rebbie Jackson announce new Michael Jackson tribute show
'A Jackson Named Michael: Remembering A Legend' will hit 24 theatres in March 2012
The tour, which is being put together with the help of family friend David Gest, will also feature singer Deniece Williams as one of the song's performers.
Much like the tribute concert taking place at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium in October, the tour, which has been called 'A Jackson Named Michael: Remembering A Legend', has been put together with the support of the singer's mother Katherine.
A new documentary, put together by Gest, which features over 50 interviews with Jackson's friends, colleagues and employees, is due for release on October 31.
The dates and venues for the tour have yet to be confirmed, but it has been announced it will call at the following cities and towns during March 2012:
- Previous: Enter Shikari, Young Guns, Charlie Simpson for new PIAS fundraising compilation
- Next: Iggy And The Stooges forced to shelve US dates after Iggy Pop breaks two bones in his left foot
