The tribute show Jermaine Jackson had been organizing for his late brother Michael has been canceled for the second time. And this time it’s for good.
The event organizers, World Awards Media, canceled the first show, which was supposed to be held in Vienna, Austria, in September 2009 due to promoters having issues securing big name stars to perform at the event. The show had since been rescheduled for London was supposed to be held in the summer of 2010, but a decision was made last month to dissolve the company behind the project.
Martin Schneider, liquidator for the organizers, said: “The company cannot sign any new contracts and will certainly not plan any new events.”
Jermaine had been trying to get big names like Mary J. Blige, Chris Brown, and Natalie Cole to perform at the Vienna concert, which was canceled shortly after the King of Pop’s brother began organizing it. No names had been announced for the London concert, which has also been canceled.
