NEW YORK (Billboard) - Tickets for Michael Jackson's two tribute shows at New York's Madison Square Garden will be priced far above the range most fans are accustomed to, with the best seats in the house carrying a $2,500 price tag. Set for Sept. 7 and Sept. 10, "An All Star Salute To Michael Jackson - The King of Pop" will feature the artist and a wide array of acts at each of the shows celebrating his 30-year career.

The lineup for the Sept. 7 show will feature Ray Charles, Gloria Estefan, Billy Gilman, Whitney Houston, James Ingram, Quincy Jones and the Legends of Jazz, 'N Sync, Jill Scott, Shaggy, Britney Spears, Tamia and 3T. The Sept. 10 tribute will include performances by Mary J. Blige, Missy Elliott, Gloria Gaynor, Al Jarreau, Gladys Knight, Lil Romeo, Ricky Martin, 98 Degrees, Diana Ross, Luther Vandross and Dionne Warwick. Marc Anthony, Deborah Cox, Mya and Usher are slated to perform both nights, as is Jackson, solo and with his brothers in the Jacksons - Jackie, Tito, Marlon, Jermaine and Randy. The extravaganza will be taped for later broadcast on CBS.
