Michael JacksonMichael Jackson's London concerts never happened -- but maybe this tribute show will.

Events promoter World Awards Media GmbH announced Monday members of Michael Jackson's family and a "high-profile lineup of international stars" are planning a tribute concert to be held within a few weeks in the Austrian capital.

No date has been set, but a venue has been picked -- Schoenbrunn Palace in Vienna, where an outdoor stage shaped like a crown will be built.

Tickets will go on sale August 20.

Oh come on, like your own families wouldn't be pimping you out - if you actually had any talent and was worth something. Elvis was pimped. Every time I turn around Marilyn Monroe is being pimped. I means she's been dead for DECADES. Not to mention commercials featuring Sinatra, Fred Astaire, and John Wayne pimping products after their death. Get real.

This family is shameful - milking his name for everything from T-shirts to CDs. His death is the best thing that ever happened to his family - money wise. These people are leeches.

All of MJ's fans are lnging for more MJ..The family is grieving,do not speak about his family.They are Michael's voice now.They are doing what they think is what Michael would want.To please MJ's fans,and to make the estate more secure for his kids...Why can't all you haters find someone or something else to do than slander a family still in shock from the loss of MICHAEL.Leave the family alone! I do hope the tribute will be televised.There are millions of fans who probably can't attend the event,who would love to see this concert.

post#4 johnny scorn--- i do believe mj was already laid to rest in forest lawn in barry gordys cript, there have been some stories about joe and about 20 close family members attened a private service there for him without the media around.. katherine was waiting for the part of his brain to be returned to his body before they buried him..that is all been done, as far as the autopsy they arent going to read that to the public until they are ready to go forward with charges on murray and whomever else they are investigating...it is so frustrating i wish they would hurry pu with that report, so we all could have some closer on all the specualtions...rip mj---sue from tampa

Will people going to this concert in Austria have to pay to see it? If so, and I suspect they will have to, then the Jackson family are just trying to make more money off their belated son. As if they don't have enough already!! The memorial service they had was enough!! Honestly!!

RIP Michael. Greatly misunderstood, greatly missed and greatly loved. Always. He got no peace in his life so it's hoped that he's finally at peace now.
