Listen, up Michael Jackson fans! You may want to start researching airline ticket prices to Vienna, because a major tribute concert to Michael Jackson is being planned there.
Events promoter World Awards Media GmbH announced today that a “high-profile” lineup of stars were being contacted to perform for the show to be held early next month in the Austrian capitol.
According to reports, members of the Jackson family have also been on hand to help plan the event, which will take place at the sculpted and sprawling grounds of Vienna’s former imperial Schoenbrunn Palace, where an outdoor stage shaped like a crown will be built.
World Awards Media’s website states: “For one incredible night Michael Jackson’s unforgettable music will be brought to life again. Some of the world’s leading artists will perform Michael’s greatest hits live in Vienna in front of one of the most fascinating historical sites in Europe and celebrate the life of the ‘King of Pop.”’
It also says Jermaine Jackson and other family members “will lead a high-profile lineup of international stars on stage to celebrate the life of his brother and perform some of Michael’s unforgettable songs.”
Austrian reports suggest acts like U2, Madonna, Lionel Richie and Whitney Houston could all be there, but none have been confirmed.
Tickets will go on sale August 20th.
It seems like there is a new Michael Jackson tribute concert announced on a daily basis. This just goes to prove that even though he has passed away, Michael Jackson's legacy will live on forever.
