I will be there along with as many members of my family that are available. I am positive that this event will be an event great enough in scale, talent and imagination to form a worthy celebration of Michael’s life. It is intended to be the biggest, and the best concert event in the world for many years to come. This is how Michael would have wanted it and I am sure it will be exactly that. I’ll see you on October 8th, 2011!”
JLS commented: “The Jackson’s were the biggest boyband ever, so to be performing alongside them is a dream come true”.
Chris Hunt, President of Global Live Events, added: “We’re delighted that such exciting and globally recognised acts have joined the line-up to pay tribute to a music legend. This is going to be a spectacular event, and one not to be missed! I’m also pleased to say that we’ll be adding more amazing headliners in the days and weeks to come.”
