Michael Jackson tribute concert announced for Cardiff's Millennium Stadium
Date Posted: 27/07/11
Up to 70,000 fans of Michael Jackson will get to celebrate the King of Pop's career with a gig later this year.
The Michael Forever Tribute Concert can be seen at the Millennium Stadium by those booking Cardiff hotels on Saturday October 8th.
A line-up of stars is set to be announced in due course, with a press conference taking place in London on Wednesday August 3rd, one day before tickets go on sale.
Some of the money raised through the event will go to charities like the Aids Project Los Angeles and the Prince's Trust.
"This is a world class event so I decided to join in. When I was told about the possible line-up I knew it would be an event fit for a king. I'd like to thank all the fans who have kept supporting us. Thank you all so much for keeping my son's legacy alive," said Michael's 81-year-old mother Katherine.
The concert has caused something of a rift between the family as it takes place two weeks into the criminal trial of Michael's doctor Conrad Murray.
