"Jermaine Jackson" released the news at a press conference in Vienna today. Jermaine told reporters, “Michael was his idol and he (Brown) dedicated his first number one hit in the U.S. to Michael. Chris is a very, very talented artist.”
"Mary J. Blige", "Natalie Cole" and "Sister Sledge", and "US5" are also set to perform. The rest of the line up will be unveiled in a series of press conferences to be held later this week with scheduled stops in both London and Berlin and Germany. "Jermaine" revealed the tribute concert, which will take place in front of 65,000 fans at Vienna’s former imperial Schoenbrunn Palace, will feature a multi-cultural line up - because his brother’s music touched people all over the globe.
He adds, “We have many, many surprises. This is growing more and more, and we have more names to announce. We want this to be a dignified performance for Michael - he attracted people from around the globe so we need to have a diverse mix of talent.”
