The Jacksons Embarking on Unity Tour This Summer
This summer, the Jacksons -- Jermaine, Jackie, Marlon and Tito -- will honor their late brother Michael Jackson with a once-in-a-lifetime tour. The brothers have announced dates for their upcoming Unity tour, their first excursion in nearly 30 years.
The North American trek will also mark the first time the brothers have performed together since their sold-out Victory tour in 1984 and comes three years after Michael's death in 2009. Unfortunately, Janet Jackson, nor her sisters, will not be joining the brothers on their journey.
The 27-city jaunt kicks off June 18 in Louisville, Ky., and wraps up July 29 in Snoqualmie, Wash.
Among the dates, the Jacksons will perform near their hometown of Gary, Ind. on June 22. And on June 28, the brothers will graced the stage of New York's famed Apollo Theater, where they were first discovered by Motown Records founder Berry Gordy, Jr. in 1967 as the Jackson 5.
"I am so happy and excited to perform again onstage with my brothers," said Jermaine of the tour. "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."
Tickets go on sale in select cities on Friday (April 6). For more information, surf to thejacksons.com.
