In a completely unsurprising move, the surviving Jackson brothers have announced a massive summer tour. The group begin their "Unity" tour in Mid-June.
While the concerts will reportedly focus on early Jackson 5 hits, the group have also apparently planned a tribute to the most famous member of their family, Michael Jackson, the international pop sensation who passed away in 2009. The world-famous Cirque du Soleil are currently performing their "Michael Jackson Immortal World Tour" at Madison Square Garden in New York, and will bring that tribute across North America over the summer as well.
"I am so happy and excited to perform again onstage with my brothers," said erstwhile leader Jermaine Jackson. "I can't wait to sing all the songs that were so much a part of all of our lives. We are ready and committed to keep the family's legacy alive and perform once again with the highest level of excellence, creativity, and most of all, integrity."
No word on whether they've elected to let iron-fisted father Joe Jackson manage them for old time's sake.
