Michael Jackson to tour next year?

Brother Jermaine hints at new world tour for 2008

Michael Jackson is set to rejoin The Jackson Five for a world tour next year, according to his brother Jermaine.

The brothers – Tito, Jermaine, Michael, Jackie, Marlon and Randy – last toured together as a six-piece in 1984 before Michael left, in between his massive-selling ‘Thriller’ and ‘Bad’ albums.

Jermaine said: “We feel we have to do it one more time. We owe that to the fans and to the public.”

Asked whether Michael would be involved, Jermaine told BBC 6Music: “He has to be, he is a Jackson. He was at the meetings. Michael will be involved.”

The reunion had been delayed by Michael’s infamous 2005 court case, but the brothers are currently recording some new material as well as finalising details for their tour.
