Michael Jackson's siblings are teaming up with producer David Gest for a tribute tour to the life and work of their brother.
Michael's brother Tito and sister Rebbie, along with Jackson family friend and singer Deniece Williams will play a series of dates in Europe and the UK next year (2012). The shows will be spoken-word and will tell stories of the singer as well as music and question and answer sessions with the audience. "The majority of the show will be reminiscences and stories about Michael that the public has never heard" said Gest according to the Guardian. The tour will be named A Jackson named Michael: Remembering a Legend and will begin next March. Gest has also produced a documentary called Michael Jackson: The life of an Icon which will be released in October. Jackson died in June 2009 following complications with his doctor CONRAD MURRAY who goes on trial for manslaughter charges later this month.
