Rescheduled to London Wembley Stadium for Michael Jackson Tribute Show

The Michael Jackson tribute show, originally scheduled for 26 September in Vienna has been moved to London's Wembley Arena.A year later than planned, London will feature a tour dedicated to the King of Pop Michael Jackson. Although the late and great Michael Jackson himself won't be gracing our stages, a London tribute concert, which has been a subject of discussion since just hours after his death, has finally been planned for next June, 2010.The news comes after the announcement of a Michael Jackson Tribute Show in Vienna set to feature a star studded cast of music names. However Jermaine Jackson and the concert promoter George Kindel reconsidered the date and location when top performers Mary J Bilge, Natalie Cole and Chris Brown pulled out claiming scheduling conflicts.Michael Jackson was finally laid to rest on 4 September and the announcement of the Vienna tribute concert came the following week. The eight week lead time before the show, however, proved too challenging the short notice saw numerous stars unable to attend. The new date and venue offer eight months for the promoter, Jackson family and music guests to organise the event."Instead of eight weeks we now have eight months to prepare," Jermaine Jackson told press. "Some of the stars who were not able to participate in the Vienna concert, but expressed their wish to participate in this event, will be able to perform at Wembley Stadium in London in June 2010."We can expect to see many of the big names in music who were expected to be missing from the Vienna event in London next June. Details of the lineup and exact date will be available soon.
