In what may not be too much of a surprise to anyone who has followed the Michael Jackson family over the past two years, we are unfortunately at yet another divide when it comes to how to properly honor the King of Pop with a long-awaited tribute concert.
At a press conference on Monday, a number of the Jackson family members — including mother Katherine, sister La Toya, and brother Tito — were on hand to announce that there would be a tribute to the singer on October 8. The concert will be held in Cardiff, Wales, and tickets will be going on sale August 4.
However, there are two primary Jackson siblings who are unhappy with the timing of the event — Jermaine and Randy. In a statement, the two explain why exactly they think this concert should not exactly be held at this specific time:
“We find it impossible to support an event that is due to take place during the criminal trial surrounding Michael’s death … We feel it is inappropriate to be involved with such an ill-timed event.”
Do you think we should be waiting to have a proper concert to honor Michael?
