Leona Lewis and Christina Aguilera set for Michael Jackson tribute show
Date Posted: 12/08/11
A star-studded line-up has been unveiled for the Michael Jackson tribute concert which takes place in Cardiff later this year.
Leona Lewis, Christina Aguilera, Smokey Robinson, Cee Lo Green and JLS are all on the bill, with fans booking short breaks able to see the show at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday October 8th.
Several of Jackson's brothers will take to the stage, while Craig David and Alien Ant Farm are also performing.
"This announcement is just the beginning, we have many more to announce. This concert will unite various generations and musical genres, reminding everyone of just how amazing a talent Michael was," said Global Live Events executive Paul Ring.
The additional acts are set to be added to the line-up in the coming days.
Jackson, who was known as the King of Pop, died in June 2009 and his physician Dr Conrad Murray is set to go on trial in September charged with involuntary manslaughter.
