Surviving members will hit the road for first tour in nearly three decades
The Jacksons have announced a series of UK tour dates next spring.
The ‘Unity Tour’ in 2013 marks the first time the group have toured together since their worldwide ‘Victory Tour’ nearly three decades ago, and the first since Michael Jackson’s death in 2009.
Jackie, Jermaine, Marlon and Tito Jackson will all be present at the gigs, which will take place in February and March. Tickets go on sale on Friday (November 23).
Jackie Jackson said that the new tour was “a dream coming true”, before adding:
I can’t believe this is finally happening. There’s nothing like having all the brothers on stage at the same time. This will be exciting for our fans around the world – and I know at each concert, MJ’s spirit will be in the house with us.
Jermaine added: “I can’t wait to sing all the songs that were so much a part of all of our lives. We are ready and committed to keep the family’s legacy alive and perform once again with the highest level of excellence, creativity and most of all, integrity.”
The UK dates for the ‘Unity Tour’ are as follows:
Birmingham NIA (February 26)
Manchester O2 Apollo (27)
Glasgow Clyde Auditorium (28
Bournemouth BIC (March 2)
London Hammersmith Apollo (3)
