have announced UK dates for their Unity Tour 2013 which sees the surviving members of the legendary musical family tour together for the first time in nearly three decades.
The Unity Tour marks the first time siblings Jackie, Jermaine, Marlon and Tito Jackson have toured together overseas since 1984.
The Jacksons achieved international superstardom with their late brother Michael from 1964 to 1990, with their mix of disco, R&B, soul, and pop. During their six-and-a-half-year Motown tenure, The Jackson 5 was one of the biggest pop-music acts of the 1970s, and have sold 100 million records worldwide, making them one of the best selling artists of all time.
"This is a dream coming true
" said Jackie Jackson of the tour. "I can't believe this is finally happening. There's nothing like having all the brothers on stage at the same time. This will be exciting for our fans around the world - and I know at each concert, MJ's spirit will be in the house with us
Brother Jermaine added, "I am so happy and excited to perform again onstage with my brothers. I can't wait to sing all the songs that were so much a part of all of our lives. We are ready and committed to keep the family's legacy alive and perform once again with the highest level of excellence, creativity, and most of all, integrity
