Michael Jackson's brother Tito and sister Rebbie have announced that they will be undertaking a 24-date tour in March 2012 in tribute to the late singer.

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:

South Shields
