A concert paying tribute to Michael Jackson is to take place at Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales, on Oct. 8, according to BBC News.
Katherine Jackson, mother of the late Michael Jackson, and four of her children—Marlon, Tito, Jackie and LaToya—called a news conference at 10 a.m. Monday at the Beverly Hills Hotel to announce a concert "in honor of one of the greatest and most loved entertainers of our time."
A press release issued Thursday referred to the concert as a "thriller of an event," which is being produced in London by the Jackson family and promoter Global Live Events, not Jackson's estate.
The events company has worked with high-profile artists, including ABBA, the Beatles, Eric Clapton, Madonna and Placido Domingo.
The show will "feature the world's most amazing music performers" and benefit charities in the United States and in the UK, including AIDS Project Los Angeles, according to the release. The concert acts have not yet been announced.
Jackson, known as the King of Pop, died in June 2009 in Los Angeles from a drug overdose and cardiac arrest. The Jackson family has owned their Hayvenhurst Avenue estate in Encino since 1971. Jackson's 1982 album Thriller remains the best-selling album of all time.
