Beyonce to play Michael Jackson tribute concert via satellite link- up

'4' singer joins the bill, but won't actually be in Cardiff for 'Michael Forever'

Beyonce has announced that she will be appearing at the Michael Jackson tribute concert in Cardiff in October, but only via a satellite link-up.

According to the event’s Facebook page, the singer will perform a cover of Jackson 5 song. It does not state whether the link-up will be live or pre-recorded.

The announcement of the ‘Run The World’ singer’s performance reads:

A unique, never-before-seen performance by Beyoncé of one of her favourite Jackson 5 songs will be shown at the concert. A lifelong Michael fan, Beyoncé really wanted to be involved in this tribute concert. Due to scheduling issues she can’t be there in person, but this performance is not to be missed.

The singer joins Christina Aguilera, Leona Lewis, JLS, Cee Lo Green, Smokey Robinson and Craig David, who will all be physically performing in person at the gig. The event is scheduled for October 8 at Cardiff‘s Millennium Stadium.

Kiss have now been removed from the event’s bill after pressure from fans and the singer’s estate.
