Jacksons to embark on reunion tour next year
Wednesday 21 November 2012
The Jacksons are to bring their reunion tour to the UK with five newly-announced dates next year.
The group - whose hits include ABC and I Want You Back - reunited earlier this year to tour for the first time in 28 years, with shows in the US, which have now moved on to Europe.
Brothers Jackie, Jermaine, Marlon and Tito last went on the road outside the US as a group in 1984. Their sibling, Michael, who performed with the group on many of their hits, died in 2009.
The Unity Tour calls at Birmingham's National Indoor Arena on February 26, before moving on to Manchester O2 Apollo, Glasgow Clyde Auditorium, Bournemouth International Centre and finishing at London's Hammersmith Apollo on March 3. Tickets go on sale on Friday morning.
