The Jackson 5 will tour in 2008 with Michael Jackson, according to his brother Jermaine.
Rumours about a possible reunion of the pop legends has been rife for some time, culminating in claims from promoter Leonard Rowe recently that live dates were being planned.
Jermaine Jackson has now given the clearest indication yet that the comeback is on and will take place next year, featuring their most famous member.
“Michael will be involved. We want to tour. We want to touch the lives of everybody who’s bought our records and supported us.
“It will probably start here first, but it will be sometime in 2008. That’s our plan”, he told the BBC in a new interview.
Discussing Michael’s acquittal on child sex offences in 2005, Jermaine said the five-piece are now “stronger than ever” and “owe” the fans who have supported them through thick and thin.
I’m really looking forward to this. Here’s hoping something eventually comes from all the ‘talking about a reunion’.
Do you think a Jackson 5 comeback tour would work?
