The endless saga of Michael Jackson's untimely death continues with the news that Jermaine's Vienna tribute concert that was scheduled for September 26 has been cancelled and reset in London sometime next year. Venue and date TBA. The concert was expected to draw 65, 000 people. (Expected by whom I'm not sure.)
This is just another fitting segment in a tale that began before MJ's death, back in April when he announced those 10 concerts at London's 02 Arena. That later turned into 50 concerts (which at the time I said was never going to happen for which I was viciously attacked in the comments section of this blog).
This news was shortly followed by his death, followed by ghostly (or not so ghostly) sightings, followed by a strangely drawn out burial process, the questioning of his children's paternity (suspects include McCauley Culkin), a homicide investigation, the announcement of a tribute concert at which Mary J. Blige, Chris Brown and Natalie Cole would perform…This was followed by denials by all three performers that they were going to appear. And THAT was followed by insistence from Jermaine Jackson that they WERE going to perform…and finally…the cancellation of the concert.
