The jacksons have announced a UK tour.

The singing siblings - Jackie, Jermaine, Marlon and Tito - will bring their 'Unity' world tour to Britain for a string of shows in February and March 2013.

The tour - the brothers' first overseas dates since 1984 - will kick off in the UK in Birmingham on February 26, before calling at Manchester, Glasgow, Bournemouth and London.

The group, who started the tour in Belgium last week, are delighted to be back on the road.

Paying tribute to his late brother Michael Jackson, Jackie said: ''I can't believe this is finally happening. There's nothing like having all the brothers on stage at the same time. This will be exciting for our fans around the world - and I know at each concert, MJ's spirit will be in the house with us..''

Jermaine added: ''I am so happy and excited to perform again on stage with my brothers. I can't wait to sing all the songs that were so much a part of all of our lives. We are ready and committed to keep the family's legacy alive and perform once again with the highest level of excellence, creativity, and most of all, integrity.''

Tickets for the UK tour go on sale on Friday (23.11.12).
