While the complete list of artists set to perform won’t be revealed until August 15th during an interview with Katherine Jackson, a few artists have been confirmed to pay homage to Michael Jackson in the ultimate tribute concert in Wales!
The tribute concert is scheduled for October 8th at the Millennium Stadium across the pond in Cardiff, Wales, but fans around the world will be able to part of the massive ceremony courtesy of special screenings and broadcasts to show the concert in its entirety.
The complete list of artists who’ve signed on for the show won’t be unveiled until August 15th during an interview with MJ’s mother, Katherine on CNN, but a few known artists have been confirmed so far.
Artists who’ve signed on to perform in honor of the King of Pop so far include [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Christina Aguilera[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Cee-Lo Green[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Smokey Robinson[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Leona Lewis[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Craig David[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Alien Ant Farm[/lastfm] — who had their own hit with a rock cover of MJ’s “Smooth Criminal” in 2001.
From the sounds of this lineup so far, this tribute concert will surely be fitting for a King!
