Katherine Jackson, mom of the late pop superstar Michael Jackson, is setting up a massive tribute concert to celebrate the life of her son. However, organization has gone off schedule lately, with some top pop stars such as Justin Bieber saying they cannot perform, due to scheduling clashes. So far, only one performer is locked in.
The “Michael Forever” concert is scheduled for October 8, in Cardiff, Wales. Tickets were due to go on sale August 4. However, the line-up is still not finalized.
Now Michael Jackson’s mom Katherine has issued personal invitations to some of the biggest music stars in the world. She hopes to get a star-studded line-up to perform at the big Michael Jackson tribute show.
However, so far only one of them is a definite yes. Cee Lo Green of Gnarls Barkley and “The Voice” fame, was quick to commit his time to the “Michael Jackson Forever” tribute concert.
Other stars who have been personally invited to perform include Kanye West and Christina Aguilera. They are thought likely to confirm their appearance. But Jay-Z, Kanye West and Usher have yet to confirm their appearance.
Stars who have said they cannot perform at the Michael Jackson tribute concert due to prior commitments include Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars.
Performers have been asked to sing one or two of their favorite Michael Jackson songs at the concert in Cardiff, Wales on October 8.
Katherine Jackson has promised them “first class travel accommodations” in Wales.
But, at the moment, only Cee Lo Green is the only performer who has signed up to perform at the “Michael Forever” concert, so no tickets to the event have yet gone on sale. Promoters say tickets will become available once a complete line-up is booked. Well, performers need to hurry and sign or there will be a massive Cee Lo Green concert in Cardiff on October 8.
