Promoter: Despite Delay, Acts Are Signed For Michael Jackson Tribute
Organizers of a Michael Jackson tribute concert, supported by the late pop star’s mother and four siblings, promise they will announce “an incredible line-up very soon” that will include “some of the greatest names in music.”
Promoters missed their deadline of Thursday to name the performers for the October 8 show, forcing them to put registration for tickets to the Cardiff, Wales, concert on hold.
“The registration period was put on hold because we want people to know who they are registering to see,” Chris Hunt, the head of the British company promoting the concert, said in a message posted online Friday.
The plan had been to announce the acts over a 10-day period following the July 25 news conference in which Jackson brothers Marlon, Tito and Jackie, sister La Toya and family matriarch Katherine Jackson endorsed the “Michael Forever: The Tribute Concert.” READ MORE HERE.
