MJ TRIBUTE CONCERT

The Plot To INVADE AMERICA

8/11/2011 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0810_MICHAEL_JACKSON_TRIBUTE_CONCERT_EX
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.

Michael Jackson is NOT dead is the subject of a jaw-dropping do***entary called "Alive! Is Michael Jackson REally Dead?" streaming now on Netflix
No name on grave
Not listed in Forest Lawn database
Grave hidden from the public
Wrong name on all death do***ents
Plus 100's of more clues, proof and evidence is revealed in this mind-blowing do***entary "Alive! Is Michael Jackson Really Dead?" amazon

I hope Michael is NOT dead! But then, he may
be depressed again, at the TOTAL lack of ethics
his stupid family has displayed since his "death".

Someone earlier already said it:
Elvis Presley's estate and family handled the
development of the Elvis "Empire" slowly and
with good taste and class. They weren't jumping
all over his dead bones excited to open up Graceland simply to cash in the moment Elvis
passed away.
I was at Graceland along with thousands of others
when the hearst came up to Graceland for his
final viewing. It was sad, but the fans were
grateful for their chance to say good bye.
Elvis's father was NOT out there promoting his
new record label, or trying to sell locks of hair,
perfume, ect.
Nevermind, you can't buy CLASS.

I care about this concert and would love to see it. But with the family divided, it seems like a disaster in the making. And why in Wales? And yes, TMZ, I know where Wales is. And why can't it be in the U.S.? Personally, I'm a fan. If you're not, then you don't have to watch or attend.

check yourself    

"Plot to Invade America"... through Live Streaming = "More than one way to skin a cat." .... "skin a cat" = getting away with subversively exploiting, and profiteering on, MJ. Again.

....... even if everything else on Earth is vaporized by a nuclear holocaust, the ****roaches will survive and carry on as though nothing has happened.

Does anyone really care what any of the Jackson's are trying to do? Michael is gone and he was the only one who had any kind of talent! Family is just trying to get rich on his name, SAD, PATHETIC FAMILY! I feel sorry for those poor kids!

Does the MJEstate have to approved this tribute.If it does common sense tell you to go by the rules. How hard is that? Who in their right mind wants to be in the middle of a family feud. Is this a PR stunt to get people interested? I was hoping this type of foolisness would end. MJ dosen't have to have any of this to sell tickets! Someone needs to grow up and act like adults.Just think of the example you are teaching your children. You are teaching them manuplation,lying,and possibly fraud.When is it going to end. MJ has already said THIS IS IT!I think he meant it.

@kay houston
Are you part of the Jackson family?
If you aren´t part of the family why do you think that you know what are they thinking about this tribute?
And i have another question to you.

Why do you think that you know what Michael was thinking when he said "This is it "(without exclamation mark)?

All i can see here is that a lot of people are always talking and making up stories about this family. I thought this kind of behavior only belonged to tabloids.

What I Think    

I suspect, Liz, that it is being held in Wales because the Jackson family knows that they couldn't fill a park bench if they tried holding this tribute concert in the U.S.
