Rumors of a Jackson 5 reunion show for 2008 have been sparked by a concert promoter.
Leonard Rowe promoted Michael Jackson’s Off The Wall tour the late ’70s/early ’80s. He has now met with the Jacksons to discuss the possibility of a reunion tour in 2008.
Rowe told Access Atlanta: “His brothers are ready. Janet is ready. But the motor of that car that makes the car run, isn’t just yet.”
Rowe added: “In April of this year, I flew out to Las Vegas and met with them all and he told me, ‘Let’s look at ’08.’ We wanted to go this year, but [Michael] said it would take a lot of preparation. He didn’t say no.”
The last Jackson 5 studio album was 1989’s 2300 Jackson Street.
Speculation about such a tour has been rife for years now, but this marks the first time a credible source has spoken about it. I’m all for a Jackson tour, although I doubt it’ll materialize – too many egos. A few one-off specials, perhaps?
