Michael Jackson - With Michael In Mind, The Jackson Brothers Begin Tour


Just days before the third anniversary of Michael Jackson's tragic death, his brothers Marlon, Jermaine, Tito and Jackie are starting their 'Unity Tour', at Casino Rama in Ontario, Canada. The show hits 14 other cities, before wrapping up in Washington on July 29, 2012, reports the Associated Press.

Various combinations of the brothers have performed together over the years, though this tour will be the first time all four have shared the stage since 1985. Following Michael's death in 2009, the four shot a reality show called 'The Jacksons: A Family Dynasty', which followed their attempts to stage a comeback. Jermaine Jackson says the latest batch of rehearsals have been particularly difficult, revealing, "The brothers don't know this, but I've broken down several times and cried during rehearsals.I'm so used to Michael being on the right and then Marlon, Jackie, on and on. It's just something we never get used to". Jermaine went on to explain that fans of the group can expect something a little different this time around, with the group rearranging their classic Jackson Five hits from the 1970s to suit their voices today. The show will also include a medley tribute to Michael, ending with the song 'Gone Too Soon'.

The brothers are undaunted heading into the tour, and even hope to release some new music later this year. Marlon joked, "It's like riding a bike.You never forget, but you do need to tweak a few things".

They miss their brother terribly. They were all close. To them Michael was just their brother. It is a shame if people think they are profiting from Michael. All the Jacksons have extraordinary talents. They loved their brother. Michael loved them. And trusted them. True MJ fans would respect his family. They are the ones who stood by him through hard times. When people who had never even met him judged him...they stood by him. Because they knew him and theyloved him. They did NOT kill their brother. The people accusing them are the true murderers. If you can't respect MJ's family you are NOT a MJ fan. You are probably the same people who made fun of him and harassed him when he was alive. God knows who hides in the dark.

Why is it so hard to understand that these people DO miss their little brother? Hell millions of strangers miss him, so why can't his family? Hey folks before we met MJ, he was already their little brother and given the facts about how they were raised with such an iron fist, they were so close and they had each others backs from birth. If the Jackson's had no talent maybe people could be justified in their complaint's, but they were a group before Michael joined them. Stop this BS of how they are "now" singing for their supper. The Jackson 5 stopped singing as a group years ago and none of these brother got close living on skid row and none of them were bought and paid for by Michael. It's just amazes me how sooooo many people get on these blog spewing their opinions about the lives of people they did not know nor they personally met. TMZ and the like makes their money by telling you exactly what you want to hear and most people just sucks it up! Unless any of you have met any of the Jackson's then I suggest you at least get the facts first then write all you want on these blogs. At least you will be using educated facts instead of what you have accepted as facts!
