Michael Jackson’s family has announced a star-studded tribute concert to be staged in the UK in October, saying it would be a show “fit for a king.”
The show of more than four hours in honor of the self-styled King of Pop will be held on October 8 at the Millennium stadium in Cardiff, Wales, and will be broadcast to 30 countries around the world in 2D and 3D, they said.
Names of the artists playing will be announced in London on August 3, said Chris Hunt, chief of Global Live Events, organizer of the concert which will raise money for a number of charities.
Jackson’s mother, who attended a Beverly Hills press conference announcing the concert along with the late singer’s sister La Toya and brothers Tito, Marlon and Jackie, said it would be “a show fit for a king.”
“This tribute will be something that is spectacular,” added La Toya Jackson.
