Quick Takes

'Global' Jackson adieu in Vienna

August 11, 2009|Associated Press

It's a concert venue fit for a king -- even the self-proclaimed King of Pop.

Vienna's majestic Schoenbrunn Palace, once home to Emperor Franz Joseph and his wasp-waisted consort, Empress Sisi, will serve as the backdrop for what organizers billed Monday as a "global" farewell tribute to Michael Jackson next month.

World Awards Media GmbH, the promoter, said members of Jackson's family and a "high-profile lineup of international stars" would perform on a multimedia stage built in the shape of a giant crown on the palace's sculpted grounds.

Organizers said Jermaine Jackson and other family members would perform some of Michael Jackson's hits. They would not confirm who else would appear and said a date for the event would be announced soon.
