Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson Show Will Be Global Smash, Say Promoters

The proposed Michael Jackson tribute concert will feature a galaxy of international superstars and will "touch the hearts of millions" around the world, according to organisers.
The King of Pop's mother Katherine and his siblings Marlon, Tito, Jackie and La Toya are working with officials at promotion company Global Live Events to stage a spectacular show in honour of the late star.
Details of the concert, which will benefit charities in the U.S. and the U.K., will be revealed at a special press conference in Los Angeles on Monday (25Jul11), but the promoters are certain the event will be a global smash.
A spokeswoman for Global Live Events says, "(It) will feature the world's most amazing music performers and be in honour of one of the greatest and best-loved entertainers of our time. This spectacular event will touch the hearts of millions around the world."

I can't believe that Michael's mother Katherine is involved in this along with Marlon, Jackie, Tito, and Latoya. I hope his children arent' involved in this. Didn't his mother get enough money from Michael. I think this is a disgrace living off Mchael this way. LET HIM REST IN PEACE!!!!!! PLEASE "LEAVE HIM ALONE". P.S. I think his mother is expoliting his childen. He wouldn't be too happy with this. He shielded them, so they wouldn't have to go through what they went through.

I think the fans will probably like this idea, I don't know. People's emotions are still running high with the loss of Michael. I think they still want to grasp onto anything they can to feel close to Michael, I may be wrong. But,think about it, when we lost him, there was, and still is, such a huge empty space that we don't know what to do with or how to fill. I'm not sure how I feel about this concert. If Michael's children are being exploited, it would surely break his heart. I miss Michael's presence on Earth and I pray that his children will continue to grow up in this world with the same ideals that their Father taught them, and that they will never let his memory fade away. I hope they never drift away from the important things Michael taught them. God bless the Jackson family, and God bless you Michael. We all love you, :')

I think so too, undoubtedly, but my questions are IF it will come to the USA, since they always seem to target the UK and other countries, but we, the fans in his home country deserve to have the same chances to be a part of it, AND, why isn't Janet Jackson mentioned as a supporter, OR as involved in the efforts to promote it? If they were that close, then she should make time in her "busy" career to insure that it is promoted. HMMM! I DO think, however, that it may be poor timing to set off while any trial proceedings are still taking place.
