LONDON (AP) — Fans of Michael Jackson are heading to Wales for a tribute concert that has divided the King of Pop’s fans and family.
Saturday’s “Michael Forever” show at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium features Christina Aguilera, Smokey Robinson, Gladys Knight, Leona Lewis and Cee Lo Green. The Black Eyed Peas pulled out this week, citing “unavoidable circumstances.”
Organizer Chris Hunt says fans can expect a “spectacular show.”
Several of Jackson’s relatives are due to attend. But brothers Jermaine and Randy have criticized the show’s timing, saying the trial of Jackson’s doctor Conrad Murray trial should take precedence over other events
Fan groups around the world have criticized the event for its timing, its ticket prices and what some regard as an out-of-the-way location.
