Quick Takes

Jackson tribute performers in flux

September 10, 2009|Associated Press

Chris Brown won't perform at a Michael Jackson tribute concert in Austria, contrary to statements by promoters, a person close to the situation said Wednesday. A publicist for Mary J. Blige, also touted for the show, said she won't be there either.

Brown never committed to perform at the concert in Vienna, said the person, who was not authorized to speak publicly and requested anonymity. Karynne Tencer, a publicist for Blige, said Wednesday that she wanted to attend the Sept. 26 concert, but had another commitment.

Organizers at a news conference in Vienna on Tuesday told reporters that Brown, Blige, Natalie Cole and Akon were among the confirmed artists.

Cole spokeswoman Maureen O'Connor said the singer had discussed it with organizers, but she may have a conflict and is not 100% confirmed.

A concert spokesman did not immediately return an e-mail message.
