Jackson Tribute -- The Show Will Go On

8/24/2009 4:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonTMZ has learned Michael Jackson's former manager Ron Weisner has been asked by Jermaine and Katherine Jackson to produce "Michael Jackson: The Tribute" in Vienna Austria on September 26.

Weisner tells TMZ he expects 100,000 people to attend. It will become a TV show. Weisner says he's reached out to some of the biggest stars in the world to perform ... no word yet on who's doing it.

It looked like the show wasn't happening because of a split in the Jackson family, but Weisner says Katherine is now on board and the show will go on.

Katherine released a statement about the tribute show, CLICK HERE to read it.

Tell the Jacksons to stuff the Vienna Concert where the sun don't shine.

Any performer in this world should be ashamed to be associated with or get on the same stage with anybody capitalizing on Michael Jacksons music and legacy.

Any decent performer in the world should be ashamed to be associated with or perform on the same stage with people with are flagrantly capitalizing on the Michael Jackson Legacy.

Are they all going to wear white gloves and armbands, and toss "mob" roses? Perform their oldies but goodies AND MJ music?

The hyenas who already bought tickets to this show are in for a rude,costly, and disappointing awakening.

If 100% of the profits from the Vienna Concerts don't go directly into the Michael Jackson Estate, or more specifically the designated MJ charities, this concert should be boycotted.

I grow very suspicious of Jermaine each day as he was the one who introduced Dr. Tohme to Michael - who then referred Dr. Murray.

THEY ALL MURDERED MICHAEL!

The Jackson freaks know there are plenty of other freaks out there who would spend their last dollar to watch a MJ Freakshow no matter where it took place.

Listening to Jermaine in an interview one has to wonder if he's a little mentally impaired. He speaks with such a low IQ whereas I've heart Tito recently who seems normal. What is it with theses Jacksons? Enough tributes, all to make a buch off a dead guy. I think Jermaine has got to be the greediest of the bunch.
Another thing, he tried to have Michale buried at Neverland when Michael said he HATED that place after the 2005 trial and never wanted to go back there. What's this guy's problem?????
GREED. GREED. GREED.

No offense to the city, but why Vienna of all places? Doesn't seem to make any sense.
