Jacksons pay tribute to Michael Jackson at Bestival

LOS ANGELES: The Jackson brothers paid tribute to their brother, King of Pop Michael Jackson at Bestival.


Jermaine, Tito, Marlon and Jackie took the stage at Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle of Wight for a set featuring some of The Jackson 5’s biggest hits and the foursome took a moment to honour the late singer.

Jermaine told the crowd: “Thanks to our little brother Randy and, of course our brother who’s here just in spirit, Michael.”

The Jackson brothers played a string of hits including “I’ll Be There”, “Shake Your Body (Down to the Ground)”, “ABC” and “Want You Back”.

They also played Michael’s hit song “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin” from his hit album “Thriller”.

The siblings’ sister Janet Jackson also made a return to the stage earlier this month, kicking off her “Unbreakable” world tour in Vancouver, Canada, on September 1.

The 49-year-old star paid tribute to Michael during her set and broke down in tears as she performed “Scream”, the pair’s hit 1995 duet. Michael Jackson died in June 2009 at the age of 50.
