Word on the street is that Janet Jackson has decided to join the Jackson 5 world tour later this year! Michael Jackson was originally slated for the tour prior to his death, and Janet has now decided to step in as his replacement.
Jermaine, Marlon, Tito and Jackie have been struggling to find something to take the pop icon's place. But Janet has now stepped in, after deciding a tour would be a fitting tribute to her brother. Jermaine said during a promotional tour in Australia, "Janet will be joining us. We're all talking about it now. She has never played with us before so that will be very special. She definitely wants to do it. We had a conference call and Janet has agreed to join us on tour."
According to Jermaine, the Jacksons will likely use some of the sets Michael was planning on using for the This Is It tour in London. "We own that stage," Jermaine told Australian press.
This certainly takes the tour to the next level! Fans are probably extremely excited to see Janet join the tour. Perhaps she can take some initiative so the shows actually happen! Jermaine seems to have a lot of good ideas, but they never come to fruition!
