Press Release:

THE JACKSONS UNITY TOUR 2012

With the stunning worldwide success of the Jacksons’ Unity 2012 Tour, the most legendary family in music history is bringing their once-in-a-lifetime reunion show to Australia and New Zealand. A worldwide sensation since the 1970s, Jackie, Jermaine, Marlon and Tito Jackson are thrilled to be returning to Australasia after nearly 30 years to perform all their multitude of hits and to pay special tribute to their late brother Michael.

Beloved by millions of fans across the globe for their soulful, sunny sound, contagious stage presence and unforgettable roster of hits, the Jacksons first achieved international superstardom with their brother Michael, becoming the first group ever to have their first four singles hit #1 on the Billboard Charts. Throughout their four-decade long career, the group revolutionized music and pop culture, getting inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997. The Unity Tour 2012 will be yet another milestone for the Jacksons, bringing the most famous family in music back together for a historic series of shows.

UAE Presents Co Founder Ritchie Perera stated, “We are very proud to be associated with such a legendary band. The mere fact that the Australian public will get to see this once in a lifetime event excites us beyond belief – The Jacksons are the soul of some of the greatest music ever made – Australia get ready!!”

“This is a dream coming true,” said Jackie Jackson of the tour. “I can't believe this is finally happening. There’s nothing like having all the brothers on stage at the same time. This will be exciting for our fans around the world-- and I know at each concert, MJ's spirit will be in the house with us.”

Honoring Michael’s memory and bringing the fans all the timeless hits they know and love is also paramount for Jermaine Jackson. “I am so happy and excited to perform again onstage with my brothers,” he said. “I can't wait to sing all the songs that were so much a part of all of our lives. We are ready and committed to keep the family’s legacy alive and perform once again with the highest level of excellence, creativity, and most of all, integrity”.

A dynasty unlike any other, the Jackson family’s impossibly catchy brand of pop-funk changed music forever. With their record-shattering catalogue of hits, they remain the biggest-selling family in music of all time. True global superstars, the Jacksons are thrilled to share their historic Unity Tour with their legion of fans in Australia.
