Jermaine, Randy Jackson speak out on Michael's tribute

NEW YORK (Billboard) - While stressing that they have every intention to take part in the show, Jermaine and Randy Jackson on Friday said they have not yet signed contracts guaranteeing their participation in "An All Star Tribute To Michael Jackson - The King of Pop," scheduled for September at New York's Madison Square Garden.
The show is scheduled to include a reunion of Michael with his brothers, who have not performed together since they toured as the Jacksons in 1984. In a statement, the brothers said although they agree that Michael deserves the tribute, "the exorbitant prices being charged by the promoters for tickets will prevent some of our most loyal and true fans from attending." As reported earlier, top-priced tickets to the show will have a face value of $2,500. The pair believes the show should benefit the needy. "It is almost embarrassing that no charities have been named to benefit from this most momentous occasion," the statement reads. "With all the suffering that is taking place throughout the world, we feel the show's promoters should donate the proceeds to worthy charities."
