Top performers at Jackson tribute

2009-09-08 12:47

ORGANISERS have said Mary J. Blige, Natalie Cole and Sister Sledge

are among 13 artists who will headline a September 26 Michael Jackson tribute

concert in Vienna.

Jackson’s brother Jermaine said up to 25 performers are expected to

perform outside a 17th-century palace in the Austrian capital, adding that more

names will be unveiled at news conferences later this week in London (England)

and Berlin (Germany).

Jermaine and event promoter Georg Kindel told reporters today that

Chris Brown and German-based boy band US5 will also perform some of Jackson’s

greatest hits at the concert.

The event has been billed as the main global tribute to Jackson,

who died on June 25 in Los Angeles, the US.

Kindel said Jackson’s family and children will be in Vienna, and

that 65?000 King of Pop fans are expected to attend.
