MJ Tribute Concert

Peace Treaty Offered to Angry Fans

The people behind the upcoming Michael Jackson tribute concert want to make peace with the fans who have sworn to boycott the event ... by inviting them all to join in on a conference call to air out their grievances.

TMZ spoke to a rep for the concert who says they're inviting the leaders of several prominent fan groups to join them Wednesday for "an informative call to address some of the misinformation about the upcoming Michael Forever tribute."

For those unfamiliar, a TON of MJ fan groups banded together in anger -- after Jermaine and Randy Jackson claimed it would be "inappropriate" to support a concert "during the criminal trial surrounding Michael's death."

We're told event organizers are hoping the call with put "rumors and incorrect information to rest."

Stay tuned ...

LaToya is behind this whole mess. She and her business friends saw only dollar signs and chose to steamroll right over the fans: "going forward 100%" -- the fans and their concerns be damned!

They also broke their word -- AGAIN. This conference call was supposed to take place TODAY (Tuesday). They also continued one of the main gripes of fans -- NO COMMUNICATION. All over Facebook fans repeatedly asked LaToya and her cabal for information on the conference call. As usual, fans were given nothing but the silent treatment. Now this -- it'll be on Weds instead.

Somebody get Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Gloria Alred, GLAD, NAACP and PETA involved. This will require the perfect storm of douchebags to resolve!

This so called tribute and the Jackson family are a hot mess. If the Jackson's weren't rich and famous, I guarantee you, we would see them all on the Jerry Springer show.

Add Janet Jackson to the list of people boycotting this tribute. She broke the news yesterday, on MJ:s birthday.

Only the Jackson family could cause controversy over a tribute concert. What a screwed up group.

I agree with Jordam. MJ is the s*** of the earth. He is not the king of pop, he is the king of rot.

Leader of the ignorant masses    

Such a stupid boycott. Maybe some people prefer to focus on his body of work and celebrate his life rather than focus on his death. That is the first thing all of his family should be doing. The trial will go on and a concert will do nothing to take away from that. Though the people behind it probably just want more money. But that will be the case regardless.

TSIG - I agree with you 100%. LaToya is behind this so-called Tribute with her Global connections and Ja-Tail employees. She is lying low terrifed to lose her fan base. She and Joe worked together on this scheme in order to profit off MJ and MJ fans.

People need to read the terms & conditions posted on Globals website. 1) No guarantee you will get a refund if the Tribute is canceled. 2) No guarantee where your seat will be located upon arrival to Tribute. 3) Your email address & personal information you supplied is being shared. 4) No money from ticket sales alone is being used for charity, it is going into Global & Jackson's pocket. 5) No big celebrities are performing, only X-factor rejects except 1 person. 6) The Tribute is being filmed to sell to networks afterwards. 7) The entire Tribute was set up to financially benefit the promoters and Jackson family with NO consideration or guarantees to the fans.

MJ fans are not following just Randy or Jermaine's ban due to the court trial. The fans read the terms & conditions and list of performers. Joe and Katherine are NOT rich. They have creditors abound with liens on their upcoming lawsuits in the millions. MJ can't support them anymore like he did for the past 20 years, so they will exploit MJ in death for the almighty nickel.
