I Want Them Back

Looks like the long-rumored, heretofore-mythical Jackson 5 reunion may actually be happening!

The Jackson Five are to reunite for a tour, with Michael Jackson set to take part, brother Jermaine has said. He told BBC 6 Music that concert dates have been discussed and could take place “sometime in 2008”.

The group last toured as The Jacksons – with six members – in support of the Victory album in 1984. Lead singer Michael, who had already released the million-selling Thriller album, was reportedly reluctant to go on the road with his brothers. He told the audience on the last night of the tour that he was leaving the group. They released one more album, 1989’s 2300 Jackson Street, before formally disbanding in 1990.
Rumours of a reunion have circulated for years, and Jermaine confirmed that the project was delayed by Michael’s trial for child abuse in 2005.
Jermaine, who sang lead vocals for the band until his younger brother took over, added that Michael would definitely be part of the reunion. “He has to be,” he said. “He is a Jackson. He was at the meetings. Michael will be involved.”
The star also hinted at new material, saying that the band was “in the studio at the moment”.
The Jacksons – featuring brothers Tito, Marlon, Jackie, Jermaine, Michael and Randy, found fame in the 1970s with hits such as I Want You Back, ABC and Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground) and Can You Feel It.

Hm, Jermaine was their source? Appearing in Celebrity Big Brother doesn’t exactly make him a reliable media outlet, but I’m willing to give him the benefit of the doubt — on one condition. I want fringe. Fringe and afros. And here’s hoping they revive their kicky choreography!

  1. I am in shock. Will anyone really go see them? How will they prevent random hair fires and whitish body parts flinging into the audience?

  2. YES PEOPLE CERTAINLY WILL GO SEE THEM. I FIND YOUR COMMENTS ABOUT HAIR CATCHING ON FIRE AND WHITE BODY PARTS TO BE JUST SOMEWHAT OFFENSIVE. FIRST MICHAEL DOESN`T HAVE CONTROL OVER HIS SKIN,VITILIGO IS A VICIOUS SKIN DISEASE THAT ROBS THE SKIN OF ALL PIGMENTATION. PEOPLE LIKE YOURSELF I CAN PROBABLY SAFELY ASSUME DOESN`T BELIEVE HE HAS THE DISEASE.JUST PONDER A COUPLE OF THINGS.THIS DISEASE MAKES THE SKIN VERY SENSITIVE TO SUNLIGHT.WHENEVER U SEE MICHAEL HE`S ALWAYS WEARING LONG SLEEVES NO MATTER WHAT THE TEMPERATURE,SECONDLY HE HAS AN UMBRELLA A LOT OF THE TIME.IF HE`S FAKING THEN HE DESERVES AN ACADEMY AWARD,AND LAST I CHECKED ACTING IS NOT PART OF HIS RESUME.HIS SKIN DETERIATION WAS ALWAYS THERE,IT JUST WASN`T DETECTABLE UNTIL IT STARTED GETTING WORST.IT WORSEN AROUND THE `THRILLER` ERA.JUST GO BACK AND LOOK AT SOME OF THE OLD PHOTOS.NOT THAT IT`S REALLY ANY OF OUR BUSINESS ANYWAY.MICHEAL AND GOD ALONE KNOWS WHO HE TRUELY IS.BESIDES MICHAEL IS THE GREATEST ENTERTAINER,PERFORMER AND SHOWMAN OF ALL TIMES,AND THAT`S WHAT TRUELY MATTERS.NOT HIS PERSONAL LIFE,THINK ABOUT IT.
