Jackson Brothers Announce 2013 UK Tour

The Jackson Brothers have announced their first UK concert tour since the death of Michael Jackson in 2009.
The group, now comprising Jermaine, Jackie, Marlon and Tito, reunited earlier in 2012 and will embark on their Unity Tour of the UK in early 2013. It will be part of their first world tour in 30 years.
The shows will see the former Motown group take in Birmingham, Glasgow, Manchester and London across five dates in February.
Ahead of the UK leg of the tour, the brothers - whose hits include ABC and I Want You Back - described it as a "dream coming true".
Jackie said: "I can't believe this is finally happening. There's nothing like having all the brothers on stage at the same time. This will be exciting for our fans around the world - and I know at each concert, MJ's spirit will be in the house with us."
Jermaine added: "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."
Michael Jackson died at his Los Angeles home after overdosing on powerful anaesthetic propofol.
Unity Tour full dates:
February 26 - Birmingham NIA
February 27 - Manchester O2 Apollo
February 28 - Glasgow Clyde Auditorium
March 2 - Bournemouth BIC
March 3 - London Hammersmith Apollo
