MJ TRIBUTE CONCERT

The Plot To INVADE AMERICA

Michael Jackson fans in the U.S. may NOT have to cross the pond to catch the LIVE MJ Tribute Concert in October ... TMZ has learned plans are in the works to LIVESTREAM the show at several major arenas around the country.  

TMZ spoke with a rep for Global Live -- the company behind the event -- who tells us producers are working with several major U.S. venues in the hopes of broadcasting the event on jumbotrons to give audiences the concert experience without having to go all the way to Wales (it's a country in Europe!).

We're told nothing has been finalized ... but Global Live is actively trying to seal the deal.

As we previously reported, stars like Kanye West, Christina Aguilera and Jay-Z have all been contacted about playing the event. So far, the only act who's signed on the dotted line is Cee Lo from Gnarls Barkley.

Cee Lo aka MJ and Christina Aguilera aka Tatiana Thumbtzen performing "The way you make me feel..." on jumbotrons "at
several major arenas around the country"? What's the meaning of this?

It never ceases to amaze me how greedy people can be, especially over the dead. This family just isn't going to stop, are they? They can't make any money off their own talent (assuming any of them have any), so they continue to feed off MJ's corpse. How sad.

Will they also show pictures of MJ´s trials for his inappropriate relationship with minors, of people discussing his drug habits, and of the albums he made that sold almost nothing in the 90s? Gotta present a well-rounded view of things.

I thought Michael was great but not having a concert in the USA first is a stab in the back. He was discovered here! They can forget and not worry about us seeing here in the USA. Not interested.

JESUS CHRIST!!! When is this family going to give it up?? Its too bad the guy died but thats old news. And really, does ANYBODY actually care about him anymore?? Why can't they make money on their own and stop mooching off his rotting corpse?

Wales is NOT a country in Europe, it's part of Great Britain.
